Willie Aames' New Video Series Truly a Family Affair
- Wednesday, December 10, 2003
Willie Aames: I spent almost the last 10 years on the road as Bibleman. One of the great things about doing this project was that we all really felt, as a family, that it was time to spend more time together. That season of my life of being gone 180 days a year is coming to a close. To have this project, to work together all of the time, is a gas. It’s fun, and I try to keep it fun on the set. There’s nothing like trusting the person that you’re working with.
Maylo Aames: We laugh. We just laugh. It’s great.
Crosswalk.com: Now I have some questions for Harleigh. What did you like most about the filming?
Harleigh: Everything. This is going to sound really stupid. I liked the smell. I have been around sets since I was little, and when the lights are on for a long time, and all the makeup and everything, it starts having a certain smell. It’s so comforting to me.
Crosswalk.com: What was it like working with your schoolmates?
Harleigh: It was nice having the friendships already established and not having to feel your way with these other people. We laughed together a lot. We’d work over lines. It was just really fun.
Crosswalk.com: How old are you?
Harleigh: I’m 13.
Crosswalk.com: How do you feel about the overly dramatic style of Missy?
Harleigh: I like it. It’s fun. I usually just wear jeans and my favorite shoes in the world – Doc Martins – and a T-shirt. I’m wearing my favorite shoes right now out of her wardrobe– just wearing all of these bracelets and stuff – I’m having so much fun.
Crosswalk.com: You said you’ve been on sets a lot. Is this your first major debut?
Harleigh: I have done some voice-overs, and some kid stuff. This was the first big thing.
Crosswalk.com: To conclude, Willie, is there anything else that you would like to add about the project or your family?
Willie: I just think it’s a great opportunity to fill a need. It covers a lot of things — great music – and includes a lifestyle that shows what a young teen can be as a Christian. There is not real entertainment for a Christian girl out there. Today’s kids are in desperate need of high quality, wholesome entertainment. Bibleman was just the beginning. The Missy Files is the next exciting chapter. I can’t wait to see what God will do.
