Laura Marano Talks Songwriting For 'Austin & Ally' With Bello Mag

Woah – check out Laura Marano on the Young Hollywood cover of Bello Mag‘s November 2014 issue!

The 18-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about really becoming Ally Dawson, working with UNICEF and more. Check it:

On becoming a songwriter for Austin and Ally: “I actually had the opportunity to write a song for the show, which was amazing! It was for Ally’s first solo song – a really important song for her character – so I was super excited. Not gonna lie, it’s pretty awesome that I get to play a songwriter!”

On career advice to live by: “When I was eleven years old, I got replaced on a few shows I had worked on and this one incredible actor told me the greatest thing: you’re not a true actor until you’ve been fired from a job. The entertainment business is a really unstable, difficult business, but you have to get through the rough times to truly enjoy the good times.”

On teaming up with UNICEF: “”UNICEF [is] literally the number one organization when it comes to protecting children all over the world. About a year and a half ago, we had an incredible meeting in New York and since then, I’ve been working with them, which literally makes me so incredibly happy every time I think about it.”

On her other projects: “Right now, I’m filming the fourth season of Austin and Ally, but during my hiatus, I filmed two movies (the feature A Sort of Homecoming and TV film Bad Hair Day). I’ve also been writing music a lot, which is such a huge part of my life. Music is definitely in my future, and I can’t wait to share my music with everybody.”
