Faith Wladyka played the part of a ballerina/child at Stacey's dance class on One Life to Live. Faith can currently be seen in the film Blue Valentine with Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. Questions are answered by both Faith and her mom.1. What was Faith's tape day at One Life to Live like?
It was great! Faith worked with Bree Williamson(Jessica) and Crystal Hunt.(Stacey). Crystal was especially nice because she explained to the girls that even though her character was angry in the scene, it was all pretend and she wasn't one bit angry with them. Faith loves ballet class, so playing a ballet student was lots of fun for her. She also got to hang out in the dressing room with the other kids, including Stephanie Schmahl , who was very sweet and nice. Her only regret was that she didn't have a line. If you look closely, you can see her mouthing along with the girls who did have lines :)2. How did Faith enjoy working with Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams?
As per Faith: "It was awesome! I loved eating raisins off the table with Ryan Gosling. I also enjoyed singing in the pretend school play. Ryan is a very funny fake Dad, and Michelle is a really nice fake mom. "
Faith spent alot of time singing between takes with Ryan, especially songs from My Little Pony. Also, the house she filmed in was furnished with a bedroom full of books and toys for her character, which was so much fun.
Faith continues to look forward to all the promotional appearances for Blue Valentine b/c it means spending time with Ryan and Michelle, both of whom she adores. Working with them was more like playing house with friends than it was work.3. What was the best part about filming Blue Valentine?
"Bringing my own dog Virgil to set and having him appear in the movie as Megan, and filming the breakfast scene where Ryan and I eat our raisins off the table with our mouths. I also liked watching Bolt and Disney Sing Along Song's with Ryan and Michelle between takes."4. Does Faith prefer television/movies or print?
" I enjoy them all, but I really want to book another movie. "5. How did Faith get started in the industry?
Per Mom- As a baby, Faith was always very outgoing and never experienced separation anxiety. Our dog sitter, who was also an actress, recommended that we try her in the business bc she was such an easy going baby. We sent her photos out to a print agency and she pretty quickly landed a big ad for Johnson and Johnson which also included a TV commercial. Since that time, she has continued with both on camera and print.6. How does Faith enjoy going to all of the red carpet events for Blue Valentine?
"I love them! I like seeing all the people I made the movie with. I really loving choosing beautiful dresses and dancing at the parties."7. Would Faith be interested in continuing in the business as she gets older?
Yes, definitely. She continues to audition for commercials, film and tv several times a week and keeps up with print modeling as well.8. Does Faith have a particular scene in any of her television or movie works that she has enjoyed filming the most?
"The Blue Valentine breakfast scene. I really liked eating off the table and making up my own lines."9. If Faith could play any role, what would it be?
" I would be in the cast of iCarly as Carly's friend. Maybe a new kid at their school."10. How did Faith feel when she found out she was casted for Blue Valentine?
"Very, Very extremely excited. I loved traveling to Pennsylvania and staying at the hotel with my mom and the cast. We ordered room service dessert every night as a treat"
