Behind the Seams: Q&A with Clare Foley
March 10, 2015
I feel blessed every time I meet an artist on the rise! I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with incredible actors, musicians, athletes, writers, producers, designers, photographers and entrepreneurs. I started this BTS Q&A feature a while back to take you all inside what makes these artists tick. Being an entrepreneur myself it is fun for me to sit in a room with these artists and ask them the ins and outs of the biz. I love hearing their stories and I love sharing them with you. Today I am taking you Behind the Seams with Clare Foley. Clare and I recently met in NYC at the Boy Meets Girl® HQ's during NYFW.
After meeting Clare for the first time I fell in love. She is 13 going on 20 but in a good way. She currently plays Ivy in the Fox show Gotham. I particularly loved hearing about her green costume that is the same for every episode (literally)! If you are a fan of GIRLS or OITNB like me then you have also seen Clare in her guest roles. Foley played the young Piper in Season 2 of "Orange Is the New Black! Clare reminded me of friends Sammi Hanratty and Peyton List both actresses that I met around Clare's age and who are doing big things today! Clare is still in school so she related to me that the hardest part of her job is finding a balance between personal life and work, however she did say her favorite part of the job is meeting new people and going to new places all the time. As we all know life is a balance and the fact that Clare is only 13 and balancing life as an actress and going to school is truly remarkable. Clare told me one of her favorite quotes is, "I'm on a roller coaster that only goes up" Augustus Waters (played by Ansel Elgort) in the Fault in Our Stars.

I think that charity work is very important and my family and I have been involved with a charity called the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation since I was 5. I also support FreeArts NYC and the Actors Fund.
