Get to know Bailey!
TCTP: Adam knows what snack to bring to any occasion. What's your go-to snack?
BC: My favorite snacks are yogurt covered pretzels for the sweet tooth craving, and green olives for the salty craving.
TCTP: Is there a missed opportunity in your life?
BC: A missed opportunity for me was…ah! I’m not sure! I’m haunted by the butterfly effect. Perhaps not moving to Chicago sooner.
TCTP: Max and Jenna lie about their relationship all in the name of love (or wanting to get away from it.) What do you think is worth lying for?
BC: Not hurting your grandma’s feelings when you say, “Thank you,I love it!”
TCTP: MISSED OPPORTUNITIES is a spin on classic romantic comedies. What's your favorite rom-com and why?
BC: Drinking Buddies directed by Joe Swanberg is my favorite romantic comedy – if you could call it that. It has all the devices of a romantic comedy without being cheesy and has a more realistic ending. Plus, it takes place in Chicago!
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
BC: I feel the most Adult when I remember to take my daily vitamin.
