Ask a Kyle Chandler fan how and when they became enamored with the actor’s work and they’ll likely cite his portrayal of Coach Taylor on Friday Night Lights. But if you ask his family to pick a favorite part of his, their answer might surprise you.

“To be quite honest, my kids don’t watch and haven’t seen a lot of what I’ve done,” Chandler, 53, tells PEOPLE of daughters Sydney, 23 and Sawyer, 17, with wife Kathryn, 55. “They’re aware of it, a few things they have [seen] but mostly I think my girls and my wife are just happy to have me out of the house.”

“When it’s all over she goes, ‘Look Pop, that’s a great movie but the only thing I cared about was you.'” Chandler says. “And then I gave her a $100 and that was settled.”
