Travel: Well I just got back from London and had an amazing time with my family: hubby and 2 boys Jake (4) and (2) Kieran. My boys are world travelers already, they both been to New York City and LA numerous times. Like parents like boys LOL. I would love to live in London one day for 6 months or so and really get the feel of the city. I believe you never really get a sense of a place unless you actually live there for a bit. The weather was exceptionally warm and and at times England felt like Italy or maybe the French Riviera. One thing I must do is improve the way I pronounce London: it’s Lan-Den not Lonn-Donn in a very thick Israeli accent:) I selected some highlight photos from my trip to England. Hope you love xoxo Marta Walsh

In this interview Amy Bailey tells Marta Walsh about how it all began for her in Hollywood. Her role in the film “Nine” and what was it like working with its director Rob Marshall.

Her latest acting role in “Alice in Wonderland”, also staring in this film Johnny Depp. Future plans, and of course, style and beauty secrets!
Marta Walsh: Where did you grow up and where is home for you?
Amy Baliey: I grew up in a coastal town called Corpus Christi, in South Texas. I loved going to the beach right after school. Now I divide my time between London and L.A.
MW: How did you decide on a career in showbiz, and what were some of your first breaks?
AB: I was a professional ballerina by 17yrs old, so I guess being onstage always felt pretty natural. My parents couldn’t believe that as a teenager I would skip out parties because I had ballet class the next morning. It kept me out of trouble, for the most part 🙂
