Bailee Madison wrote a sweet goodbye after wrapping production on her flick, Cowgirl’s Story over the weekend.
“That’s a wrap on #CowgirlsStory & this experience will go down as one of the most cherished moments in my life. Thank you to the cast & crew for pouring your heart, soul & talent into this movie every second of every day, and thank you for trusting me to jump behind the lens,” the 16-year-old actress shared on Instagram.
She added, “Each & every one of our cast members brought these characters to life in extraordinary ways, so much that as I heard ‘that’s a wrap’ I felt like I was saying goodbye to these characters that we had become. I knew that we were onto something special- but I had no clue it was going to be this special.
“I believe in my heart that we have made a beautiful film & I also believe in my heart that the friendships that were created will only be strengthened as time goes on. I’m going to miss seeing & working with my friends every day, there’s simply nothing cooler than that. However, I will forever be thankful for the memories & look forward to the day we get to do it all again.
“I wish I could hit replay but I know that it’s just the beginning for our #CowgirlsStory ! I can’t believe we did it. Congratulations to all!”
Bailee Madison is going to prom in Hallmark’s new movie, Date With Love!
In the flick, after A-list actress, Alex Allen (Shenae Grimes), has an epic Hollywood meltdown and is dumped on the red carpet before her latest movie premiere, she is in desperate need of some positive publicity in order to save her reputation as “America’s sweetheart.”
Salvation comes in the form of a small town boy’s video “Promposal” in which the student invites Alex to his high school prom. Sure enough, when the video goes viral, it scores the kid a date with his celebrity crush. It’s also a chance for Alex, who was never asked to her own prom, to go back to high school and make this the best prom she never had. Complications arise when the starlet falls for the student’s English teacher, Mr. Walsh (Andrew Walker).
But when Alex’s Hollywood habits stir up a little too much drama in the small town high school, she’ll have to figure out what is more important to her, fixing her career or finding a love she always dreamed of.
Date With Love airs TONIGHT, Saturday, May 21st @ 8PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel. 30+ pics inside…
