Madison Pettis Q&A

Jan 27, 2010

With her new movie, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD February 1, we got a chance to chat with cutie Madison Pettis about voice acting, dogs and a possible future singing career … ?!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2Madison Pettis

Kidzworld: You got to be the voice of LaLa in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 – what’s she like?

  • Madison: LaLa is one of the daughters of Papi and Chloe. LaLa is very energetic, excited, hyper … and a bit of an airhead!

Kidzworld: Do you like dogs? Do you have your own pet dog?

  • Madison: I love dogs! I don’t have a dog of my own right now because I’m really busy working and traveling and I don’t have the amount of time it takes to give a dog the special attention it deserves. But I hope to have one someday! But I’m allergic to some dogs, so it would have to be a hypo-allergenic one!

Kidzworld: Did you do anything special to make your voice sound more “puppy-like”?

  • Madison: Well, I’m pretty bubbly and perky in real life…a lot like my character LaLa. So I just had to exaggerate that and channel my inner puppy!

Kidzworld: What’s your favorite thing about doing voice work?

  • Madison: My favorite thing about doing voice work is it doesn’t matter what you look like! I can go into the recording booth in my comfy sweats!

Kidzworld: What is your favorite scene from Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2?

  • Madison: My favorite scene is when the puppies slide down the slide into the mud puddle!

Kidzworld: What is your favorite memory from working on Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2?

  • Madison: Getting to meet in-person the real puppy LaLa that I play in the movie—she’s so cute!

Kidzworld: Considering that you have great voice power (!), do you want to go into singing one day?

  • Madison: Yes, I definitely plan to have a singing career sometime in the near future! I’ve been working with a vocal coach on technique because I want to make sure I do it properly.

Kidzworld: Tell us about your new show, The Haunting Hour! Is it totally creepy?

  • Madison: I guest-star in an upcoming episode of The Haunting Hour called “The Black Mask”, which is based on the R.L. Stine books, so it’s totally creepy! I was a little freaked out just reading the script! It’s not “blood and guts” scary – it’s more of a suspense and sit-on-the-edge-of your-seat creepy! You wonder if what your eyes are seeing is actually real, or is your mind playing tricks on you. That’s the kind of scare I like! My episode will air sometime this spring.

Kidzworld: When you’re shooting these scary shows, do you ever get really freaked out?

  • Madison: I got really freaked out when I read the script. For the actors shooting it on set, it’s not quite as scary at that moment because you already know what’s about to happen. You don’t have the suspense that the audience feels when they watch it on TV. But it’s still fun to act like I’m completely scared and freaked out and scream really loud!

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
