Halle Bailey is swimming to new territory: solo stardom.
Rising to prominence as part of sister pair Chloe x Halle, the 21-year-old is stepping out on her own and is set to shine as Ariel in Disney‘s live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid.’
Stunning in a number of demure shots lensed by Federico de Angelis, the star seized the feature (which was sponsored by Fendi) to open up about the movie, setting sail on her own journey, and more.
Pics and quotes below…
On The Little Mermaid:
“It has definitely been a whirlwind of an experience.
I really connected with how Ariel feels. She just wants to discover something new. She wants to see a whole different world that has never been introduced to her before.”
On Venturing Out Solo:
“There was a moment particularly when I was in London, and doing things on my own, and working every day, and working very hard, where I was like, ‘Okay, this must be what it feels like to have myself to rely on,’” she expresses, “I am kind of proud of myself. This has been a wild ride into adulthood.”
On Continuing To Grow:
“I think I am definitely naive about a lot of things in life, whether it be love or hardship, or just life in general. And I think that just the experience of going through life and experiencing things will just teach me along the way, really.
I am finding my wings and my footing.”
