In addition to the amazing Sutton Foster (Michelle) and Kelly Bishop (Fanny), the Bunheads cast is full of some extremely talented dancers and actresses. We can’t wait for you to see them all in action! One of the characters you’ll soon meet is Boo, played by newcomer Kaitlyn Jenkins.
“Like a couple of my Bunheads co-stars, this is the first major project that I have been involved in,” the actress recently told Starry Constellation Magazine. “We are all having a great time learning and growing together on the show!”
Want to know more about who Kaitlyn will be playing? “My character Bettina ‘Boo’ Jordan loves ballet and would do anything to become a real ‘bunhead,’” the actress reveals. “She is determined, a hard worker, has a positive outlook on life, sees the good in others, and is a dreamer.”
But Boo has some hard times along the way -- as you’ll see in the June 11 series premiere. “My character Boo and I share many of the same struggles as a dancer,” admits Kaitlyn. “At times it's hard because it's like reliving those difficult moments all over again. But the challenges I faced as a dancer helped me better understand Boo, and I think it really helped me bring a more realistic and personal feel to her.”
