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.”
