What's on the revengenda this evening?

Emily Alyn Lind was named one of the 10 Most Beautiful and Promising Up-and-Coming Child Actors on imdb.com. This 9-year-old has already established a very impressive resume! Her credits includes playing “Amanda Clarke” in the hit series “Revenge” and this past Christmas playing the voice of “Grace Goodwin” in Pixar’s “Prep & Landing: Naughty v. Nice.”

Emily also portrayed “Shirley Temple” in Oscar contender “J. Edgar,” and she completed a starring role as “Maggie Gyllenhaal’s” daughter in the feature film, “Learning to Fly.” Her Mom Barbara Alyn Woods and both of her sisters, Natalie and Aly are also actresses! Emily is a very busy tween! We asked Emily to share with us how she balances her life as a child star, charity work in the Make a Wish foundation and fun time!

How do you balance being a young actress? How do you fit in school, friends and fun time and what are your favorite things to do in your free time?
Well – I don’t have a lot of free time where I have absolutely nothing to do. My life is pretty full but I like it that way. I have friends who understand that I work a lot of the time. But when we get together, it’s extra special. I like having friends who are not in the business so we’re not always talking about auditions or working. My sisters are my best friends and we play together a lot – we like to make our own movies – we write them, act in them, direct them, edit them — it’s so much fun. I work a lot, but my Mom always makes sure that we have a lot of “kid” time too.

Currently you are working on the set of “Revenge”, can you tell us about your character and that experience?
I play “Amanda Clarke” who is the younger version of Emily Van Camp’s character. Sometimes we see Amanda having fun on the beach when she was a really happy little girl. But recently I’ve been given some juicy scenes where we get to see why Amanda is seeking revenge. Some of my scenes are pretty intense – I LOVE that!

The show is so much fun to work on. Emily and Madeline and the rest of the cast are really great. I feel lucky to be on such a good show and I love going to work every day.

We have a feature called “Tween’s Making a Difference” can you tell us about your charity work with “Make a Wish” foundation and are there any other charities you work on?
I started working with Make a Wish when I was in Halifax working on November Christmas where I played a little girl with cancer. I started to do a lot of research on how these kids live with illness and discovered Make a Wish. They make so many of these kids happy by granting their wishes – I wanted to be a part of it. Now I always collect money on any set and give it to Make a Wish. It makes me feel like I’m not just working for myself, but when I get a job, it’s for these kids too.
