Local Lass Brightens Big Screen and Shines on Stage
Maplewood’s own 6th Grade superstar, Beatrice Miller, is busily building quite the career!
11-year-old Beatrice Miller is already a very accomplished actress. Now that her latest film Toy Story 3 (she voices the role of Andy’s little sister, Molly) has received 5 Oscar nominations, including best picture, she’s sure to become a very, very sought-after one as well.
If you’d like to catch a glimpse of this talented young star on the rise you can do so now through February 6th off-Broadway in the Helen Hayes award-winning play, Honey Brown Eyes. (The New York Times review of the play, set in war-torn Bosnia of 1992, favorably singles out Miller’s performance as noteworthy, btw!)
Think performing eight shows a week in New York City is enough to keep Beatrice busy? Think again:
“Last month, in the midst of full-time rehearsals for Honey Brown Eyes, she was on set with Ed Asner shooting scenes for the upcoming HBO movie, Too Big to Fail,” reports her mom, Hilery Kipnes. “And best of all, she made honor roll in middle school while working full time since the school year started. We are so proud of our hardworking girl.”
So is Maplewood. Break a leg, Bea!
