  • Rylie: Chandler O’ Neill probably.

KW: You’re in the new film I Heart Shakey, can you tell us what it’s about?

  • Rylie: It’s about loyalty and sticking together as a family, but the main story is about a widower his daughter and their dog move to the big city for her dad to be a chef and they find out the place they’re moving into doesn’t allow pets so it’s a struggle to decide whether to keep their dog.

KW: How do you relate to your character (Chandler O’Neill) in I Heart Shakey?

  • Rylie: I think we’re both strong and love our family so much.

KW: What was your favorite part of filming the movie?

  • Rylie: I loved meeting everybody on set because they’re like family, seeing them at the premiere was great it was like a family reunion!

KW: Your siblings have appeared on screen with you before, what was that like?

  • Rylie: Working with my siblings is great, they get to see me at work and i love seeing them on set, its just a reminder of how exciting it is.

KW: What is the best piece of advice you’ve received since starting out?

  • Rylie: I had gone to an acting class once with the director of Grease and we watched this video with a teacher who gave the advice to “never be satisfied.”
