Bella is featured in the Summer issue of Wonderland Magazine! I added a couple of images of Bella from by Charlotte Hadden for Wonderland Magazine, you can take a look at them in the gallery. There is also an interview with Bella on their website, part of it can be seen here below and the rest on the Magazine website.
Bella – it’s been a speedy climb to success, hasn’t it? When did you realise you wanted to become an actress?
I did it because everybody told me I wouldn’t be able to! I started acting when I was nine. I was on quite a few projects, I did Big Love, I did My Own Worst Enemy and Shake It Up was my first Disney role.
What attracted you to your part as mean girl Madison in The Duff?
I honestly wanted to play Bianca, the main character. The director Ari Sandel, was like, “No, you’ll be better as Madison!” I said okay, because I just really wanted to work on that film. I love the comedy! I was laughing out loud in my bedroom at two o’clock in the morning reading the script. I loved the message behind it, it’s really important and people need to know that in life you’ll be labelled, but it’s our job to climb out of that box and show people who we are.
So, you’re not playing the character that you wanted to – but do you see any similarities between yourself and Madison? Is there anything you can relate to?
No! Madison is really mean, she’s very evil, she’s conniving, she’s very blunt. That’s the only thing I like about Madison, she is very straightforward.
Have you ever encountered a Madison type in life?
Yes. I don’t know why she was mean to me, I honestly have no idea why. I haven’t said anything to this girl, I’ve barely even met her!
How horrible! How do you think people should deal with mean girls?
Well honestly, I’ve never confronted my mean girl. A lot of people give you the advice to just not worry about it and try and forget about it. No! That is so hard to do when you are the person being bullied. I was bullied and that’s messed up! Be very vocal, you should tell everybody.
