The holidays are right around the corner and TWIST recently had the chance to chat with actress Alyvia Alyn Lind, star of the new American Girl special.
Alyvia plays the lead character in Amazon's original special titled An American Girl Story – Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas. As you can imagine, with the the story taking place in 1955, the wardrobe is completely different from what you would wear today.
We asked Alyvia to tell us her favorite part about the costumes she got to wear and she spilled all about it.
"The wardrobe from the 50's was unbelievable!" she gushes. "Even though Maryellen loves jeans, she wears the cutest dresses that are so girly! And it's so cool that I wore real American Girl clothes blown up to my size. It was like a girl-dream come true!" That sounds so amazing!
Alyvia also told us the one thing she wanted to keep from set. "It sounds funny, but I wanted to keep my bangs!" she shares. "I couldn't cut my hair because of another show I was working on, so they had to add a bang extension, which I really liked! And I really liked my vintage shoes. I kept my strawberry blonde hair color so if I ever need to be a redhead again, I'm good to go." How funny is that!
