Bronte Carmichael is only 11 years old, but when she enters a room it’s not hard to recognize that she is wise beyond her years. She stands with poise and dignity and talks with wisdom, but yet never looses her youth in the process. She plays the daughter of Christopher Robin (which is currently in theaters)
Words of wisdom from 11 year old Bronte Carmichael
Do you have advice for other children that are interested in acting that you could pass along?
Bronte : I’d just say like, be as natural as you can and like, don’t let like, things get in the way of you. You just, let, let it flow and, you know, just be there in the moment . . .
Be natural when acting
What kind of advice did they [Bronte’s parents who are also actors] give you before you shot this movie?
Bronte : They like Winnie Pooh, I like Winnie the Pooh. I mean, everyone likes Winnie the Pooh. So, they’re just like, try your hardest, and you know, [and be natural] . . . They’re just stuffed animals, so, you know, you don’t need to like, overact things.
So, how do you memorize the lines for the movie? Do you read them over and over? Do you have someone to practice with?
Bronte : Um, well, I, I kind of just, uh, yeah I read them once or twice and then I, I do it with my mum, and then I, then I try to memorize them. And then I look back over them, and then I look at stuff like, I could work on like, you know, facial expressions during the scenes and stuff.
To memorize things read over the content, try to memorize, then review the lines again
Do you think there’s ever an age that anyone will outgrow Winnie the Pooh?
Bronte : No. I think it should always be like a special thing. No one should- Pooh is a very special character. Like, he’s just so simple. He’s not like, he’s not like a really baby-ish character. He’s not like . . . adults you know.
No one ever outgrows Pooh
Do you have a favorite line in the movie? Maybe something that sticks in your head that you like?
Bronte : Um, well, the one scene that they’ve changed . . . throughout, . . . is the train carriage scene . . . they kept the line the same where . . . Madeline’s explaining to Pooh that . . . nothing comes from nothing, and then Pooh tells her that nothing is the very best something, and that’s, that’s the line that I remember the most.
nothing comes from nothing
Bronte Carmichael is a definitely a rising child star. She is really blessed to have parents who are actors and will remain close by her side and her enjoy working in the industry while also being a kid.
Definitely watch Christopher where she places Robin’s daughter Madeline in the movie.
