Introducing your new favourite film star.

“Anne Hathaway once told me that I shouldn’t judge myself too much.” 17-year-old actor Mackenzie Foy tells me down a crackly transatlantic call. She’s just woken up in LA and is lounging around in her pyjamas when we jump on a call. We’re currently musing over the best piece of advice that she’s received from the impressive list of cast-mates she’s amassed over the past few years. Her former colleagues include some of Hollywood’s finest: Michael Caine, Timothée Chalamet, Jessica Chastain and Matthew McConaughey, to name a few, and for a talent who hasn’t even reached the age of 18 yet, it’s a pretty impressive feat.

Born and raised in California, Foy has been acting almost her entire life. Securing her first movie role at the age of nine, she established herself as one to watch by playing Renesmee Cullen, the baby of Bella and Edward in the film adaption of Stephen Meyer’s vampy Twilight series. Progressing quickly up the ranks, she later bagged herself a lead spot in Christopher Nolan’s time-travel epic Interstellar as the young Murph Cooper; a role for which she won the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor and fully cemented herself as one of Hollywood’s most promising rising stars.

Coming out this November, the all-action fantastical film has been directed by three-time Oscar-nominee Hallström, the man behind tear-jerkers Chocolat and Dear John as well as a string of iconic ABBA music videos from “Take a Chance on Me” to “Gimme! Gimme!
Gimme!”. “It was really fun working with Lasse.” Foy explains. “In the beginning process for the film, Lasse and I had a lot of meetings where we would talk and develop Clara. I had a wonderful time creating Clara’s story with him.”

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.
