Actress and singer Isabella Leon joins us on Close-up Culture to chat about her role in Disney’s Dream Big Princess Club and creating music to uplift others.
Q: You have an exciting role in the Disney web series, ‘Dream Big Princess Club’. Can you tell us anything about the show and your role?
A: I’m one of the hosts alongside seven amazing girls who have become my friends. We spend our time together making arts and crafts, and hosting fabulous parties while discussing different Disney princesses. We create a platform that allows everyone to dream big and find their inner princess/ warrior.
Q: How special does it feel to be part of the Disney family?
A: When I was three year old, I used to pretend I was a Disney princess. Now being part of the Disney family is a true blessing. I love being a positive role model for everyone while pursuing my dreams of acting. Walt Disney himself once said: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Q: You’ve been on some big sets before including ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Life In Pieces’. How did the experience of filming a Disney web series compare?
A: Being able to act in Modern Family and Life In piece was such a fun and helpful experience. It really gave me a stepping stool into acting, especially for my role as a host for the Disney web series. I’m grateful for all of my acting opportunities because they’ve all helped make me into the actress I am today.
Q: Your single, ‘Perfectly Perfect’, released last month. Can you tell us about the song and the inspiration behind it?
A: There is a lot of hate being thrown around and I feel like I wanted to create a song that would be uplifting and help people in accepting their imperfections. I want everyone to know that they are all perfectly perfect.
Q: I understand you will be releasing your EP at your 12th Birthday Bash. How excited are you to share the album?
A: I am crazy excited to share my EP with not only my friends and family but also with those who have followed me on my journey. The songs on my EP all have their own message but together they have a greater meaning.
Q: The event will also raise money for the Spera Foundation USA. How important is it for you to help this incredible cause?
A: I actually an Ambassador for the Spera Foundation USA, in memory of my big sister Danielle.
Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to know my sister as she had passed away – before I was born – from a sudden Cardiac Arrest the day after her 19th Birthday. My mom has always made sure we keep her spirit alive. She tells me Danielle was a very loving, caring and giving person. She was beautiful inside and out.
So in her memory, I vow to do what I can to bring awareness and help save lives by building Heart Safe Neighborhoods – one neighborhood at a time across America!
