If you haven’t seen Jaylen Barron on Free Rein, you should get some popcorn and go on Netflix. It is such a sweet and warming show. She is just as sweet as you would imagine her to be. We loved getting to know her better.
Tell us about your character Zoe in Free Rein. Zoe is an American teen whose mom decides to take to England for the summer to visit her grandpa so she feels out of place and a bit anxious to be there. Her sense of adventure takes over though and she isn’t afraid of the challenges ahead.
How are you and Zoe similar, how are you different? I know where she’s coming from. It wasn’t long ago I was 16. We are similar in a that she’s not afraid of speaking her mind. I’m not quite as forgiving when it comes to girls who are not nice.
What is it like acting with a horse? It can be very difficult and dangerous but thrilling and fun all at the same time. We have to remember horses have feeling and they get tired or have bad days just like us. They have personalities as well so if your horse isn’t about the acting that day you will have a hard time however, we have the absolute best horse-masters to train us and show us how to manage them with respect.
Do you have a party trick? No, I’m afraid I don’t
What would constitute a perfect day for you? Netflix, my dogs, food and the couch in sunny California
Three people—dead or alive, real or fictional—that you’d like to invite to dinner? Halle Berry, Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o
Turn ons? Kindness
Turn offs? Lack of empathy for animals and humans
Tell us a secret. shshsh I take them to my grave
An embarrassing moment? I couldn’t tell you that…
Your proudest moment? I just directed a small scene on Free Rein and I was pretty proud of myself that I didn’t pass out of sheer terror.
What does Popular mean to you? That’s a good question- I’m not sure how to answer it. Maybe to be known as a kind person or remembered as one.
Can you tell us about any upcoming projects you are working on? Season 3 and the 2 specials of FREE REIN! I do post updates on IG &Twitter so give me a follow, friends.
