Hi Aubin, please tell us a little about you?
I am in 6th grade! I have a huge family of brothers and sisters. I love so many things – like
dancing, singing, acting, reading, science and MATH!
Describe yourself in 3 words?
adventurous, intuitive, determined
How did you get started into acting?
Both of my sisters were already dancing, acting and singing when I was born so it all started with me just tagging along and trying to do whatever they were doing. Catherine and Alex were both really into theatre and I caught the theatre bug also. I remember Alex booking the Broadway National Tour of Sound of Music and playing Gretl and I was like I want to do that too. All three of us would also sing together in cabarets in New York city and that was such a special experience singing together! When the audition for the Broadway Tour of Les Miserables came in, I was determined. Alex was the one who told me I got the part of Little Cosette. We were both laughing and crying together. A week later, Catherine booked Harry Potter on Broadway. It was crazy. All three of us were on different Broadway shows in different locations at the same time.
How has this changed your life?
Not too much. I still go to regular school, except I miss a ton of days. I still dance all the time and try and go to conventions whenever I can! The best part is that I have a whole group of people in my life from acting that I love so much, but I also have my group at home that I love also. I am lucky that I have had some amazing experiences.
What is the best and worst part of being an actress?
The best part is being on set and all the new people I get to meet and work with. I have made some of my best friends in the world. I love performing. The hardest part is being away from school, family and my friends. I also love to dance, so it is hard to train like I usually do when I am acting. But I really love acting and would not change anything!
How do you prepare for a role?
I honestly don’t try to over rehearse or overthink it. I only choose roles that I feel a connection to and feel are right for me. If I feel the role, it comes more easily and I just learn the lines and do it! I think for me it makes my performances more natural.
Tell us about your work on Nick’s “THE REALLY LOUD HOUSE?”
It is amazing and so cool to be bringing to real life the Loud House animated series. I play the role of the fifth-youngest Loud sibling, Lucy Loud. She is gloomy, cynical, loves anything dark and scary like bats, vampires and has some supernatural powers. She also loves to scare her siblings! Lucy does not show a lot of emotion but underneath her calm exterior she actually does have a mischievous side – I have incorporated some of my own personality into her. Working with a full cast of kids is the best part! I have literally a second family!
And about Amazon’s romantic comedy anthology series “Modern Love?”
Filming this episode was one of my favorite experiences. I learned to roller blade for the role! It also was the first time, I had to really improv on set. I had lines, but most of my scenes were completely improvised. I would do several versions of each scene. It was a ton of fun and I learned so much!
What other projects you have been part of?
I currently can be seen on Netflix’s new series “The Watcher.” I also have been on HBO Max’s “Gossip Girl,” CBS’s “Madam Secretary,” Apple TV’s “Invasion,” SyFy’s “Happy!,” and the thriller feature film “The Girl Who Got Away”, on Amazon Prime. I also have done theatre and loved playing Little Cosette and Young Eponine in the National Broadway Tour of Les Miserables and was also Molly in Annie the Musical.
What kind of roles do you like or would like to play and why?
I love playing all types of roles. I love drama and more grounded roles, but I also love comedy. I would love to be in a sci-fi show or a super-hero show that has a lot of physical acting as I love stage combat and am really good with movement.
What is the most rewarding part of your work?
I think the most rewarding part of my work is knowing that the hard work I put into this is paying off. I am literally playing one of the coolest characters and I feel like she really resonates with a lot of young people out there. The comments I get from the fans about how the show makes them happy and feel better about themselves just makes me feel good!
What’s your advice for the newer actors?
The best advice on acting that I have been given is to just be a kid and be a kid that “acts” and not an “actor” that is a kid. Even though it is hard to juggle at times, I still go to regular school, play soccer, dance, play video games, rock climb and just have fun.
Do you and your sister Catherine share any tips or give any advice in projects or acting?
We sometimes work on auditions together, but I have learned so much from just watching her. She is one of the most talented actors I have ever seen – she can do it all! Catherine is also one of the hardest working people I know and always stays happy, positive and optimistic. She is a great role model and I have learned so much from her!
What would say are the greatest lessons you learned so far in this business?
I have learned that anything in life is possible. You have to dream big, work hard and to be kind to everyone.” The acting world and fans gravitate towards positivity and happiness. I have learned to always be myself and to be a positive light in this world.
How would your best friend describe you?
Helpful, funny, charismatic, kind, free-spirit
If you are a book, what would be the title of the book and why?
“Rexi’s Roaring” because I love t-rexes and I think people should feel free to be themselves!
What advice would you give to your younger self and why?
Don’t change for anyone. Be you and that is more than good enough!
What book should every entrepreneur read?
My mom and my sisters, Catherine and Alex, and I are writing an inspirational piece that talks about hope, joy, love and celebrating our differences for Rebel Girls. I love that series and have been reading them since I was little. I also think everyone should read the Harry Potter series. It is just a rite of passage that every person (adults and children) need to read!
What’s next for Aubin Bradley in 2023?
I was just on The Watcher which is on Netflix streaming right now. I also have an animated series coming out soon where I voice a cute bunny named Coco on the brand-new American version of Bing on Cartoon Network. I absolutely love voice-over recording and this show is a fan favorite in many other countries and now I can’t wait to bring it to the United States. You will also see me next in the upcoming Apple TV+ dramatic sci-fi series Hello Tomorrow! which premieres on February 17th. I am also filming a new movie starting sometime in February. And of course, there is hopefully going to be a lot more stuff with The Really Loud House and Nickelodeon. I am also dancing a lot, which is a ton of fun!
What would you like to say to your fans?
I I have the best fans in the world. Thank you for all the support and I love the fun edits you make for me!!!
What is your favorite healthy food?
Yogurt drinks from Trader Joes
And your favorite cheat food?
Cookies and cream milkshakes with whipped cream on top
What is your own definition of happiness?
Legos, skiing, dancing, exploring new things.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Taylor Swift. I think she is an incredible song writer, singer, business woman and person. She is so inspirational and such a great role model.
Best advice ever given?
From my mom . . . she is full of inspiring sayings and wisdom. One of my favorites that she is always telling me is “ to follow your inner moonlight and don’t hide the madness.” What she means is to follow your inner voice and and do in life what makes you happy. The “don’t hide the madness” means to be yourself and let people see who you really are – even your “not so perfect, crazy, quirky self.” She tells me this kind of madness is what makes you happy. I really try to live my life this way.
Where do you see yourself and your career in 5 years from now?
I will be in high school then and in the middle of applying to colleges. I hopefully will get into Yale (my dream school). I also hope to have another series in the works and have worked on a few feature films!
Favorite song? Why?
It changes every day, but right not it is “Would’ve, could’ve, should’ve” by Taylor Swift.
What do you think of Social Media?
I don’t really like it that much, but I sometimes have fun on TikTok and like to use it to communicate with fans and friends
