QUESTION: What treat would your ideal ATM dispense 24 hours a day?
BAILEY: I’m a sucker for mint chocolate chip ice cream!
QUESTION: How long have you been dancing? And what made you aspire to become an actress?
BAILEY: I started dancing as a toddler because I was very shy and my mom thought it would help me make friends. I got really serious at around seven, and I did jazz and tap as well. That led to musical theater, which led to straight acting. And Bunheads is great because we get to do a little bit of all of that!
QUESTION: What was your reaction when you found out you were cast on Bunheads?
BAILEY: I found out the night after my final audition. My agent called and asked me if I was in public, and I said yeah because I was in a hotel lobby. He told me not to scream and told me I got it, but I screamed anyway and jumped up and down and ran to the bathroom and called everyone in my family. I told my sister that it was like Christmas on hyperspeed!
QUESTION: OMG! I'm a super freak Sutton fan too! So jealous you get to work with her all the time now. Was that surreal?
BAILEY: Yes! The first time I met her was at a dance rehearsal for the show. Sutton’s was before ours and I saw her through the window. I had to practice some serious self-control not to just run in and interrupt the whole rehearsal!
