Youll recognize this exceptionally talentedactress for her television roles shes played onWizards of Waverly Place,Once Upon a Time, ABCsTrophy Wives, and ABC FamilysThe Fosterspremiering inJune. Shes worked with Hollywoods top stars and has many movie credits to her name; includingParental Guidance,Just Go With It,and of course, for her adorable and memorable character May Belle fromBridge to Terabithia,which she filmed when she was only 8 years old. Now 14, Bailee moves from one film set to another, having just completed filming in Montreal for an upcoming Hallmark holiday movie,North Pole.

This busy young lady makes it a priority to have time for family, friends, and doing charity work, especially as spokesperson for Alexs Lemonade Stand (see that storyHERE). She feels her gift of talent that puts her in the spotlight also gives her a powerful platform to bea positive role model and make a difference in the world. And even though Bailee spends most of her days in a grown-up world and is mature beyond her years, she understands the importance of being silly!

In this exclusive interview, BYOU Magazine asked Bailee, Are you silly? Her response,I am a totally silly person! I am the biggest dork youll ever meet! I will randomly break into song when I hear something that triggers it; I use puns all the time, and will totally say something out of the blue. Ill act goofy and wont really worry what others think. I like having fun. One of my most favorite things to do is laugh, and if I have an opportunity to laugh, Im going to laugh my butt off because I love it so much. When you having fun, youre just happy and you get to smile and laugh. If you take yourself too seriously, its not going to do any good for you or anyone. When youre having more fun, your friends and people around you will have more fun too. Its like a chain reaction.
