We had the opportunity to interview an up-and-coming actress, Molly C. Jackson!
Molly has been performing since the age of four and has voiced a few characters in Pixar’s “Inside Out” and the upcoming sequel to “Finding Nemo“, “Finding Dory“. She was also in the short sci-fi/fantasy film “The Shadow Guide: Prologue” and had a memorable role in the sci-fi thriller “Circle“.
Molly has also appeared on two Nickelodeon shows; “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn” as well as the upcoming “Game Shakers“.
Read our interview with Molly below:
Q: What has been your favorite project you’ve been in so far?
A: This is a really hard question because I haven’t had a project I haven’t loved to work on yet. My absolute favorite though would have to be my experience working on the Nickelodeon show, Game Shakers. The two episodes I’m in haven’t come out yet, but they will be airing early summer! I’m really excited for everyone to see them!
Q: Can you explain your experience with Inside Out and Finding Dory? We see that you’re listed as having additional voices, but can you elaborate on what voices you portrayed and the experience of working on those films?
A: I had a really great experience working on both of these fun projects! For both Inside Out and Finding Dory I got to work with a group of about 5 other kids. We were all in a giant sound stage, with microphones, a giant screen, snacks, headsets, and voice coaches. The editor in the room would cut to different scenes and all the kids would take turns getting to voice different characters. It was a great experience with both films. I got to have fun with the other kids, but also I got to learn a lot from the voice coaches. In Inside Out I voiced the dying rat in Riley’s nightmare, I was various kids on Riley’s hockey team, I voiced some of the voices inside the cat’s head (this scene was while the credits were rolling), I was also some voices inside the mean girl’s head (also while the credits were rolling), and just a variety of other miscellaneous voices!! I can’t say what I voiced in Finding Dory, but I can say it’s going to be a really fantastic film!
Q: What’s something that you currently “nerd” out on? Any favorite books, television shows or movies you’re loving right now?
A: Yes, yes, yes! I love DC Comics. My favorite shows right now are The Flash and Arrow. I’m trying to get all caught up with Supergirl, and I’m also catching up on all the Batman movies! I wasn’t introduced to the whole superhero world until recently, and now I’m hooked.
Q: What’s next for you, do you have any upcoming projects you can talk about?
A: I have three Nickelodeon TV episodes coming out this summer! You will be able to see me in two episodes of Game Shakers and one episode of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn. You will also be able to hear me in Finding Dory this summer! I’m also always working on producing new content for my Musical.ly account (Username: Molly.Jackson)! I love Musical.ly because I get to create, act, direct, and film.
Q: Who’s an actor or actress you’d like to work with in the future?
A: Julie Andrews. She was my inspiration to act. If I had the chance to work with her it would be the biggest dream come true.
