Talking Sia, her BFF Millie Bobby Brown, and more!
From starring on a hit reality show at 8 years old to becoming a New York Times bestselling author at just 14, Maddie Ziegler is undeniably one of the most influential teens on the planet. Now, the former So You Think You Can Dance judge is setting her eyes on acting, making her feature film debut in the upcoming drama The Book of Henry. We sat down with Maddie to ask her fan-submitted questions by members of the BuzzFeed Community and invited some furry friends along to help!
What was it like starring on a reality show at a young age?
Maddie Ziegler: I had a very interesting time starring on a reality show at only the age of eight. But, I don’t think I would ever do one again just because they’re a little stressful and I’d rather do acting.
What was the transition like from dancing to acting?
MZ: I think a transition from dancing to acting is different and the same in so many ways. When you dance you, have to act and you have to show emotion, so I think it really helped me relate into acting.
