Disney actress Belle Thorne in recent interviews revealed that despite having a car she is afraid to drive and as such has passed on the opportunity to get even a driving permit. Fortunately, she and her mother are best friends so whenever she needs a ride she asks her mother to drive her.
She may not be ready to drive but her recent move to more serious dramatic projects such as “Big Sky” and “Home Invasion” is earning her much praise from entertainment fans as she easily could ‘stay in her lane’ as a Disney actress but she fought for these roles which shows growth and maturity.
Another intriguing aspect of her revelation that she fought very hard for these roles is her enhancing the image of the Disney Channel as a very valuable learning experience and the actors who emerge from the channel as being well prepared to showcase their dramatic range in serious projects (ET Online - August 12).
She admitted to being very aware of the image of Disney actors as only being able to work on Disney projects but even though she is only eighteen years old her words carry a large amount of weight and thus her making the statement that she has never worked harder than when she was on the Disney Channel has earned Disney actors greater respect from entertainment fans on social media.
Bella Thorne may not be ready to drive a car but her ‘Big Sky’ trailer and her comments about acting show that she has the maturity, acting range and grit to be a leading lady as an adult actress and is also enhancing the image of actors getting ‘trained’ on the Disney Channel before they make the leap to serious, adult dramatic films outside the Disney genre.
