Who do you consider a role model in your industry and why?
“I consider Yara Shahidi to be a role model in this industry because not only is she an extremely talented artist but she is also kind, smart, and funny. She’s a good person for young people to look up to. She shows people that anything is possible thorough hard work and kindness. On top of all of those wonderful qualities she’s incredibly smart. I have never met anyone who can even compare to her intelligence. Did I mention she’s going to Harvard?! She’s going to change the world. I’m proud to say that she’s one of my oldest friends and one of the coolest people I know.

Who’s your celebrity crush
“Dylan O’Brien.”

What do you wish people knew about you?
“My dad is teaching me how to drive a stick shift so that I have a better chance at surviving the zombie apocalypse.”

Today an animated adaption of The Little Prince premieres on Netflix, featuring one very talented 15-year-old as its lead voice actor. Meet Mackenzie Foy, who you may recognize as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s young daughter in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Having grown up dancing, Mackenzie turned to tae kwon do and found the sport equally satisfying for helping her develop incredible power, strength, and diligence. Oh, and did we mention she has a black belt, too? When she wasn’t showing us her high kicks and her nunchaku skills on set, Mackenzie chatted about what she learned while voicing her character in The Little Prince, The Little Girl.

“I used to be a dancer, but my studio closed, so I wanted to find something active that would be fun to do with my brother. In tae kwon do, we learn to be respectful to everyone. Respect is definitely something that I already had before going into tae kwon do, but it enhanced. And being able to do things under pressure is really important.”
“When I do tae kwon do, I feel happy. It’s a very safe place for me. I love being physically fit and being able to do kicks and real push-ups. If I ever was in danger, I could fight. I could protect myself or someone else. It actually took me six years to get my black belt. It taught me that getting what you want takes a lot of hard work and time.”
“I filmed The Little Prince for about four years on and off. It was really fun, and I have great memories. A lot happened in those four years: I mean, I aged significantly, I worked, the film changed. To get connected to the story, I read the original book and studied the personalities of The Little Prince and The Aviator so that way I could incorporate them into the role of The Little Girl because she is not a character out of the original series.”
“The Little Girl taught me to be hardworking and do what you need to do, but also have fun. You can be silly at times too. My character dealt with a lot of pressure at a young age. I can relate to that. We all deal with that. When I’m in a situation where I am under a lot of pressure, I usually just take a deep breath so I don’t get anxious. And my mantra when I practice tae kwon do? Don’t fall down.” — as told to Maddie Sensible

In The Little Prince, a Little Girl (voiced by Mackenzie Foy) lives her mega-controlled life by her well-meaning, stiffly-professional mom’s life schedule. She’s a smart child with no sense of wonder. When The Aviator (Jeff Bridges) a grizzled old dreamer next door, comes into her life with stories about a mythical prince who lives on a tiny asteroid, is when she really learns to be alive.

Beautiful young actress Mackenzie Foy has grown up over the course of recording her Little Girl voice in many sessions for The Little Prince an animated film based on the popular children’s book. She had just turned 12 when she started recording and now she is 15. Big difference! Mackenzie told us, “I’m several inches taller and went through puberty since then. I recorded the voice over several years. It was a learning curve. That experience has taught me many things”.

The teen will soon star as lead character Clara a Disney version of The Nutcracker. She was a model and was originally noticed as a young child at a dance recital. Her fave animated film way back then was Bambi and she has sort of been playing Pokémon Go but admits she is lazy at it. She warned us, “Never interrupt someone playing Pokémon. While I was doing hair and make-up for a press day there was a Pokémon in the hotel room so I was like “Oh my gosh!” It’s really fun. Sometimes I’ll cheat when my mom is driving around in the car. I’m lazy about it”.  She is certainly not lazy about her acting.
