Willow Shields was recently in Australia. She spoke with Total Girl…
Who has been the most interesting person to work with in your acting career?
Probably Jennifer Lawrence. You don’t meet many people like her. She is an amazing actress, but at the same time she is also a very nice person and she is very talkative and straight away she just wants to know all about you. She is just really awesome person.
Is it true that you have a secret hobby making miniature art?
Yes that is true! I like to make what’s called artist trading cards – basically like how people have baseball cards, what I do is take a baseball card or a playing card and then I paint over it, or do a collage or something, and make it my own little piece of art, and then I can trade it with my friends and stuff. I really love doing that.
Do you have many friends who do it with you?
Yeah I have three or four friends that also really love artist trading cards, so we are always making new ones and trading with each other.
Cool! Is it also true that you are a twin?
Yeah, I have a twin sister.
Did you ever use being a twin to your advantage to play pranks on your parents or school teachers?
Sadly, no. But we did always used to do that to our brother. We were always trying to figure out ways to prank him!
Do you and your siblings get on well together, or fight lots?
We actually get on really well with each other. We were really close when we were little.
So your siblings are actors too, does that ever get competitive?
Sometimes. Me and my sister don’t really look alike, but we always get called in for the same parts, so it’s sometimes a little competitive. Especially if she gets a call-back and I don’t, or if I get a call-back and she doesn’t. It works out though!
Tell us about the R. L. Stine (Goosebumps) series you recently starred in.
Yeah, I was in an episode, The Haunting Hour. I played a teenage girl in an episode of that and I’m really excited for that to come out. It was a really fun show to work on.
Did you read any of the Goosebumps books growing up?
I did actually. My brother when he was younger collected the books so I ended up reading them with him. So yeah, I did read some of them.
What’s the best thing about Oz Comic-Con?
I’m really excited to see all the fans. I love seeing the fans dressed up and I think it’s really awesome!
What acting tips can you offer other girls out there who want to break into the industry?
Don’t ever lose faith that you can do it. It can be easy to doubt yourself when you don’t get a role, but you can’t lose faith in yourself, you have to keep going.
