Bailee Madison Dishes On What It's Really Like To Be An Actress & Producer At The Same Time

Bailee Madison Dishes On What It's Really Like To Be An Actress & Producer At The Same Time

Bailee Madison isn’t just an actress in her latest film, A Cowgirl’s Story — she’s also a producer.

JJJ sat down with Bailee recently to chat about going behind the camera for the flick, a step that she’s actually taken before with Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket.

“After speaking with other producers who are friends of mine, I realized that it doesn’t matter if you have been an actor your whole life, a producer, or a school teacher, you can never be fully prepared for a day’s work,” she says about her new role. “A new challenge is always bound to come up.”

Bailee adds about wearing two hats all at once: “It was challenging to do a scene, and while the scene was happening, worry about my acting, the rest of the actors, make sure everyone was hitting their marks, hear a line, and make a mental note to re-write it; in addition to wondering if our horses need a break, if our crew is good, and if we are on time and not going into a meal penalty.”

“Producing is a very selfless job. It’s about taking care of everyone on-set before you, and I think that’s why I loved it so much.”

EXCLUSIVE: Chloe Lukasiak Dishes on New Film 'A Cowgirl's Story'

We caught up with Chloe Lukasiak about her new movie A Cowgirl’s Story!

She plays Savannah in the flick about a 17-year-old girl named Dusty Rhodes (Bailee Madison), who goes to live with her grandfather while her parents, both soldiers, are deployed in Afghanistan.

Because she is attending a new high school, Dusty makes friends with a group that includes Savannah, a girl whose father also served in the Army.

Dusty convinces her new friends to form an equestrian drill team, but when her mother’s helicopter is shot down in action and goes missing, Dusty’s faith is seriously tested.

She must work together with her friends and grandfather to overcome her sorrow and unite the town for a higher cause.

Check out out Q&A with Chloe below:

JJJ: Tell us about your audition and how you got involved in the project!

Chloe: I had become friends with Bailee a few months before this project was in motion. I had actually auditioned for something else she did and she gave me a call to say that they were casting A Cowgirl’s Story and there was a role she thought I would be perfect for. I auditioned and ended up getting the part! I flew to LA about a week later and we started production.

JJJ: Describe your character in 3 words.

Chloe: Troubled, Rebellious, Sarcastic

'Famous in Love' Author Rebecca Serle Opens Up About Writing the Show With Marlene King

'Famous in Love' Author Rebecca Serle Opens Up About Writing the Show With Marlene King

Rebecca Serle, the woman behind the Famous in Love novels, is also a writer on the highly-anticipated upcoming television adaptation.

In fact, she told us that she always planned to make a movie or TV show out of the idea.

“I was over at one of my really good friend’s house and I was flipping through this magazine,” Rebecca explained. “There was a photo of Katie Holmes and honestly, it may have with been Tom Cruise. She may have still been married. This was seven years ago. I was reminiscing with this friend about obsessed I was with [Dawson's Creek couple] Pacey and Joey, and them dating in real life, and their characters falling in love on screen – and sort of that dialogue between fiction and reality. And I just stopped, and looked at my friend, and we were both like, ‘That’s a book.’”

“It was always a dream of mine to create a show and contribute to this space,” she told us. “I was obsessed with teen content growing up. I grew up on shows like Dawson’s Creek and Roswell, and moved on to Gilmore Girls. I felt like those characters were really my friends in moments that were challenging in adolescence. I just think it’s really cool to create content for people who are becoming adults. It’s really fun. I remember when Alex died on Roswell, I was inconsolable. It felt like I had really lost a friend. Television is so intimate – you invite people into your home. They sit with you week after week after week. You’re so invested over the course of many years.”

So, Rebecca wrote the pilot script and gave it to Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King, with whom she now works on the series.

“I was a fan of Pretty Little Liars and she’s obviously done really amazing things in that YA space,” Rebecca said. “It was super educational. Shes definitely a powerhouse. Pretty Little Liars has something like the biggest social media presence…it’s a total phenomenon. I think if we can have a tenth of the success that they’ve had in that space, we’d be very happy.”

Famous in Love premieres TONIGHT, April 18 @ 9/8c on Freeform.
