Bella will be at Central Illinois Drive basketball game in Bloomington on January 28th. Here is an article from WJBC, and you can click here and listen to an interview with Bella.

ella Thorne stars as CeCe Jones in the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up!”

Thorne has been entertaining and modeling since she was 6 years old. She noted in a WJBC interview that watching her brother act made her want to have a similar career. It was modeling that got Thorne started in the industry and singing that keeps her learning something new every day. Thorne said she devotes her Sundays to improving her voice and exploring the world of music.

Thorne’s love beyond the creative arts is for shoes. She built a room at home designed especially for her over 200 pairs of them and the purses she has owns too. When you see her on the red carpet you will often see her wearing a new pair of shoes that she absolutely loves!

Thorne points out that if you are interested in acting you have to pour your whole self into getting better and commit to following your dreams. Thorne points out she is dyslexic and while it has created some challenges it has also taught her to look to others for support.

Bella and Zendaya talk about “Frenemies”

An interview by Channel Guide Magazine with Bella and Zendaya talking about “Frenemies”

Both actors play fashion journalists, so we asked, “If you truly were a journalist, what question would you ask yourself?”
Zendaya says: “That is really tough. Probably, I’d ask myself, ‘Where do you want to be in five years?’ I think that’s always an interesting question as far as where someone thinks their future will go. I’d like to see myself continuing many years of Shake It Up — it’s kind of like my second home. Hopefully coming out with albums because I love singing, maybe win a Grammy or two — I wouldn’t be mad at that. An Academy Award for movies, I’m good with that. I see myself continuing my career in a happy, healthy way.”
Thorne says: “I’d ask myself, ‘When you look into the mirror, who do you see?’ When I look into the mirror I see me as a little girl growing up and going through a lot of hard times. Going through dyslexia and my dad passing away and my grandmother and grandfather. I see that but I also see the happiness I have with my family and to be so thankful and humbled by my fans — they love my songs and the show, and that makes me want to cry because I love them so much. I think that’s what I see — someone who’s gotten through a lot. Yet people look up to me in some kinds of ways and that means a lot to me.”

As for picking a favorite outfit from the film…
Thorne says: “Do you remember when I’m talking to the guy who has a crush on me in the film? He comes up to me and I’m trying to get everyone to do a John Frank thing. It’s an “I Heart” T-shirt with a jacket over it with a skirt and high socks and heels.
Zendaya says: ‘The clothes were just impeccable and so fun to work with. There were outfits were I was like I wish I could just take these home and wear these – and also a lot of them were very comfortable and free. You know I love to dance so I could move in them.”

And, when it comes to keeping up with technology – as their characters do – they have a good pulse on it…
Thorne says: “I’m really good about everything going online. I don’t have an iPad. I have a Mac. My best friend Tia has one and she’s always like, ‘you can you do this and this,’ but I’m not good with iPads. I’m really good at texting. My brother does this test for texting. I think we have fast texters in my family.”
