Bailee Madison may be young, small and still emerging in Hollywood, but she has an insight to life that is heard when she speaks and felt when she smiles far beyond her years, size and stature. The excitement she exudes for her career as a young actress is grounded in the purpose she believes God has for her life. “My mom has always told me when you’re done with that movie, you have to stay humble Bailee,” and humbled she is.
On a very adventurous path, acting in movies such as Bridge to Terabithia and five movies to be released in the next year and half, Bailee mingles on the set with stars such as Katie Holmes, Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hilary Swank and Minnie Driver. It can be intimidating and difficult for a young actress to keep things in perspective. Yet Bailee knows that she was chosen to do this and realizes the hard work required and challenges to overcome. In these moments, she simply talks to her best friend-God. She prays for understanding.
Out of the mouth of just a child, Bailee confidently assures others that if you have God in your life, if you just look to your Heavenly Father -despite struggles and hard times- He is always watching over you.
