TWIST just chatted with Bailey Buntain! Bailey dished about the new episodes of Bunheads and gave us the deets about her guest role on The Middle. Check out our exclusive convo below!
TWIST: Hi Bailey! What can you tell us about your character on The Middle?
BB: I play Jenna Taylor, an incoming freshman at the high school that Sue and Axl go to. Jenna is that girl who doesn't have to try very hard. She makes friends easily and fits in. Sue had a hard time as a freshman, trying out for five million things and not making anything and never making it to her locker on time. So she's trying to impart all this stuff that she's learned and shared. It's funny to watch. It was hard to not laugh!
TWIST: Which character do you relate to most, Jenna or Sue?
BB: Oh, I was totally more of a Sue in high school! I was shy, and I was new a lot. I switched schools frequently. So I think I was probably more like Sue.
TWIST: Did you have fun on the set?
BB: It was so much fun! Everyone was really, really nice. I was a fan of the show. I started watching it back in Season One, so it was double exciting. It's always great to be working, and it's even more exciting when you're a fan.
TWIST: Can you tell us anything about the upcoming episodes of Bunheads?
BB: Yeah! We're about to do our next eight to round out our first season. It will start airing in January. I have no idea what's going to happen! I would tease it for you, but I don't even know.
TWIST: We're so excited to see you on The Middle! Is there anything else coming up for you?
BB: My hiatus on Bunheads ends in two and a half weeks, so I'm about to go back to Balletland. I'm excited!
TWIST: Thanks so much for chatting with us Bailey!
BB: Thank you!
