Actress Mackenzie Foy Explains How Tae Kwon Do Keeps Her Centered
Today an animated adaption of The Little Prince premieres on Netflix, featuring one very talented 15-year-old as its lead voice actor. Meet Mackenzie Foy, who you may recognize as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s young daughter in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Having grown up dancing, Mackenzie turned to tae kwon do and found the sport equally satisfying for helping her develop incredible power, strength, and diligence. Oh, and did we mention she has a black belt, too? When she wasn’t showing us her high kicks and her nunchaku skills on set, Mackenzie chatted about what she learned while voicing her character in The Little Prince, The Little Girl.
“I used to be a dancer, but my studio closed, so I wanted to find something active that would be fun to do with my brother. In tae kwon do, we learn to be respectful to everyone. Respect is definitely something that I already had before going into tae kwon do, but it enhanced. And being able to do things under pressure is really important.”
“When I do tae kwon do, I feel happy. It’s a very safe place for me. I love being physically fit and being able to do kicks and real push-ups. If I ever was in danger, I could fight. I could protect myself or someone else. It actually took me six years to get my black belt. It taught me that getting what you want takes a lot of hard work and time.”
“I filmed The Little Prince for about four years on and off. It was really fun, and I have great memories. A lot happened in those four years: I mean, I aged significantly, I worked, the film changed. To get connected to the story, I read the original book and studied the personalities of The Little Prince and The Aviator so that way I could incorporate them into the role of The Little Girl because she is not a character out of the original series.”
“The Little Girl taught me to be hardworking and do what you need to do, but also have fun. You can be silly at times too. My character dealt with a lot of pressure at a young age. I can relate to that. We all deal with that. When I’m in a situation where I am under a lot of pressure, I usually just take a deep breath so I don’t get anxious. And my mantra when I practice tae kwon do? Don’t fall down.” — as told to Maddie Sensible.
Today Mackenzie was filming on the set of Home & Family. Dont miss it Tomorrow, will air on The Hallmark Channel in USA.
I added some need pictures on Home & Family set. All of these can be found in our Gallery, so be sure to check them out now!
In The Little Prince, a Little Girl (voiced by Mackenzie Foy) lives her mega-controlled life by her well-meaning, stiffly-professional mom’s life schedule. She’s a smart child with no sense of wonder. When The Aviator (Jeff Bridges) a grizzled old dreamer next door, comes into her life with stories about a mythical prince who lives on a tiny asteroid, is when she really learns to be alive.
The Aviator encourages Little Girl to enjoy life
Beautiful young actress Mackenzie Foy has grown up over the course of recording her Little Girl voice in many sessions for The Little Prince an animated film based on the popular children’s book. She had just turned 12 when she started recording and now she is 15. Big difference! Mackenzie told us, “I’m several inches taller and went through puberty since then. I recorded the voice over several years. It was a learning curve. That experience has taught me many things”.
The teen will soon star as lead character Clara a Disney version of The Nutcracker. She was a model and was originally noticed as a young child at a dance recital. Her fave animated film way back then was Bambi and she has sort of been playing Pokémon Go but admits she is lazy at it. She warned us, “Never interrupt someone playing Pokémon. While I was doing hair and make-up for a press day there was a Pokémon in the hotel room so I was like “Oh my gosh!” It’s really fun. Sometimes I’ll cheat when my mom is driving around in the car. I’m lazy about it”. She is certainly not lazy about her acting.
Kidzworld: Serious question: Do you think that kids in show business are encouraged to grow up faster than other kids in order to be disciplined and have a strong work ethic?
Mackenzie: I think some cases are different than others but all of the child actors that I have encountered, as well as myself ,are real kids. I mean we do all the things that kids do. We’re normal. We just to do different things. We like to act and make people feel happy or sad but we’re “real” people. No one has ever pushed me to grow up like that.
Little Girl’s mom doesn’t want her wasting time
Kidzworld: Good. So you’ve been able to avoid that. As a teen do you still retain that sense of childhood sense of wonder?
Mackenzie: Very much so!
Kidzworld: Do you live on a tight schedule? I assume your mom hasn’t planned out your whole life like your character in this film. What do you do to relax and kick back when not working?
Mackenzie: It kind of varies according to what I’m doing and what my situation is but, most of the time, I have no idea what I’m doing until the day of. Usually, I wake up, do school and Taekwondo (she’s a black belt) and come back home. I’m usually ready for anything and keep a back-pack ready.
The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy) starts to dream
Kidzworld: Did they show you drawings or early animation of your Little Girl character?
Mackenzie: They showed me some clay sculptures of her and, later on, showed me more storyboards then the actual animation itself. The clay sculptures were the Little Girl, the Aviator, The Little Prince and the Fox. Kidzworld: I so want one of those toy stuffed foxes. Did they give you one?
Mackenzie: They gave me a cute key-chain.

Kidzworld: Any pets at home?
Mackenzie: I have a cat and a dog. They don’t really get along but I think they get along when no one is looking. Kidzworld: What was the hardest scene to record and get your voice right and which one was the most fun?
Mackenzie: Hard to remember. We re-did a lot of it because, sometimes, the script would have changed so they’d have me to it again but all of it was definitely a challenge trying to convey all the emotions without using my body or my face. But, it was fun. They shot a bit of video of me recording and I think, as in all my characters, there’s a little bit of me inside them (once they are on screen).

Kidzworld: You voiced Violet in The Boxcar Children. How was recording for The Little Prince different?
Mackenzie: Well I did The Little Prince first then Boxcar Children. But it was really different. For The Boxcar Children, we did a lot of group recording sessions. All of the children were there. I did some single (recording) but not for the entire script and I had to dub some of it so that was a different experience trying to match (another voice actor) Pauline’s performance. That was really tricky.
Most of The Little Prince, I did by myself with director Mark. It had a total different energy and feel to it which was unique. I got to record with Jeff Bridges (The Aviator) and that was really fun!
Kidzworld: I know you have read the book.. Talk about that and showing everyone the snake drawing?
Mackenzie: “The Little Prince” is one of my favorite books. I used to get the picture of the elephant inside the snake, and I would go around and show it to all of the adults and ask them what they saw. The ones who hadn’t read the book said it was a hat. I was like, ‘No, it’s an elephant inside a snake!’” I read it for school in I think the fourth grade. But, I’m a big fan and continue to read the book.
Sad Little Girl is always studying
Kidzworld: Do you think you have writing or drawing talent? Would you like to create your own book?
Mackenzie: I love to draw and paint. I’m very active in that way but I’m not very good with the written word though.
Kidzworld: If you go to college later on what would you study?
Mackenzie: I want to study cinematography.
Little Girl and Aviator plan to find The Little Prince
Kidzworld: What bands or music artists are you really into right now?
Mackenzie: It changes weekly. I love Adele, Imagine Dragons, I’m a huge fan and Taylor Swift.
Kidzworld: What would you say to teens and tweens as to why they’ll really enjoy seeing The Little Prince?
Mackenzie: It is a beautiful film. It’s a film that I recommend seeing again throughout your life because every time you see it there will be a different meaning and a different layer uncovered.

Thanks to Katalin we have a new/old interview from The little Prince. Misfortune we could not obtain or observe the video of this interview, but I hope that soon we can do. For now here is the interview and a photo:
LOS ANGELES (text / c III) in May this year in Cannes when Tencent entertainment have the opportunity to interview the film “Little Prince” small girl’s voice by Mackenzie Foy . The name perhaps another public feel strange, but if the reference to “Interstellar”, then perhaps we will have some impressions. Yes, this year, just turned 15 years old, she is in the “Interstellar” inside, playing childhood Jessica Chastain little girl, and “father” actor Matthew McConaughey has wonderful scenes.
In our brief interview, she revealed on “The Little Prince” in love. She was responsible for dubbing the film a little girl, she is an excellent learning math Pa. But she shyly said he was particularly poor mathematics, but like astronomy and history, as a good memory.
Tencent Entertainment: your character with her mother relationship is very close, you have this feeling they feel about it?
Mackenzie Foy: I think they all love each other. Best of all mothers want to give the little girl, because she loved her too. So sometimes, the mother would behave a little bit too much. Sometimes the girl go out for fun to play, but the mother will make her homework. But from beginning to end, they have always loved each other.
Tencent Entertainment: You met in real life things like what?
Mackenzie Foy: No, my mother was not very busy, I told her a very good relationship.
Tencent Entertainment: Speaking of relations with the grandfather of the girl, how do you see?
Mackenzie Foy: That scene was really sad. I remember when they dub showed me a clip that is really touching, I was surprised. Relationship is like a little girl and grandfather and grandfather or granddaughter is a good friend, so their relationship is very close.
Tencent Entertainment: Your voice is what kind of process? Everyone recording, or separately recorded?
Mackenzie Foy: One time I was talking to Jeff Bridges recordings together, and sometimes there will be a large group of people together, sometimes only myself. To see who was in the studio.
Tencent Entertainment: What is your favorite scene?
Mackenzie Foy: I like the end of the part, I feel beautiful. I also like the part of the nebula change, because every time to see the time, I would like to make staff more time to make use of those pictures, amazing.
Tencent Entertainment: The first time you see this time how much of the novel?
Mackenzie Foy: how old do not remember specifically, but I was fourth grade. I really like this book. It’s about imagination, love, on your own heart and soul of a book that I really like.
Tencent Entertainment: “The Little Prince” there are a lot of planets, which one is your favorite?
Mackenzie Foy: I like the king that, I think he’s very funny.
Tencent Entertainment: Movie inside girl always doing the math, what your favorite subject? Most do not like it?
Mackenzie Foy: I do not like math, I like history and astronomy.
Tencent Entertainment: Which subjects do you get the highest score?
Mackenzie Foy: history of it, I really like history, but also like to see the history books.
