Disney paid for my flight and hotel stay for the Wrinkle in Time Press Junket.
This beautiful woman, Bellamy Young had a blast during our interview with her. She is charming, funny and so expressive. I took photos of her during our interview and every single shot she had a different expression on our face. She also took individual shots with us at the end of the interview.
Scandal is ending guys, can you believe it? Scandal is ending and before it does, there is going to be a crossover episode with How To Get Away With Murder!!! What an exciting combination of two fantastically written ABC TV Shows. We’ll be sharing details about the Scandal/How To Get Away with Murder crossover episode down below.
But FIRST……Let’s talk about our interview with Bellamy Young from the Wrinkle In Time Press Junket. She’s in the movie! Her part may be small but she’s in the movie.
Bellamy said that working with Ava is a dream and that she is such a visionary. She was asked to be in this movie and had no idea what her part would be but said yes as soon as she was asked. Her part was so small she was very surprised to be in one of the trailers.
Bellamy loved the story of Wrinkle In Time and thought of Meg Murry as herself as a child……
And Meg, it was like, somebody read my diaries and then added some sci-fi elements to it. I mean, at every point, Meg’s like, “I can’t do this,” or “I’m not enough” or “My gift is my faults? Like, I don’t know even know what am I supposed to do with that?” And to watch her journey into, owning who she was? Plus, I said things like “Tesseract” ….so it felt like a safe home, and the promise of a great future, when I read the book as a kid.
So, what does she want more than anything??? She wants Scandal the movie! She’s not sure where the last episode is going to end yet, but she hopes that there is room for and approval for a Scandal movie.
She’s so flawed. But she has such big dreams, and she’s doggedly loyal, and will fall on her face, but she will stand up and walk forward, like the Terminator, do you know? Like, all of that skin just hanging off her face? I marvel at her. It’s been a great, great gift. Not just the fact of having a job, but the fact of getting to be her.
I really liked listening to her talk, she’s so down to earth, all the way down to her fashion. If she had her way she would be in “fat pants” and relaxing in her spare time. She has such a fun personality she’s infectious. She is very sad about shooting the last episode of Scandal and is grateful there might be a something to go to after Scandal. She’s going to be filming a pilot for ABC. We didn’t get any details on that upcoming pilot but we hope it gets picked up. The last thing I want to share with you is how excited she was to shoot the crossover episodes that come on tonight.
“I got to act with Viola Davis, ya’ll.”
