5 Things to know about Nadej Bailey of The CW’s upcoming series ‘Life Sentence’

The CW has a brand new upcoming show called Life Sentence premiering in Jan. 2018. Pretty exciting, right? In case you don’t know much about the show yet, I can catch you up to speed in a previous post, where I give you the run down on what we know about Life Sentence so far. Here’s the synopsis of the new series:

Starring Lucy Hale, the series centers on her character, a young woman diagnosed with terminal cancer. When she finds out that she’s not dying after all, she has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to “live like she was dying.”

Here at Pure Fandom, we were lucky enough to have the pleasure of talking with Nádej Bailey (Revolution, Being Mary Jane, Containment, Resurrection), who has recently been confirmed as a new cast member of Life Sentence.

Nadej Bailey joins Lucy Hale in The CW's 'Life Sentence': 5 things to know about her

Here are 5 things to know about Nádej Bailey:

PURE FANDOM: What are you most excited about joining the cast of Life Sentence?

Nádej: I am excited for the many adventures we will have together! This is a brand new chapter for all of us, so I can’t wait to see what is in store!

What can you tell us about your character?

My character, Sadie Carter, is a 13-year-old girl living her life with cancer. She is very candid, empathetic, and a realist. She has so may elements to her which makes her so lovable and fun to portray. I believe she will put a smile on many faces and bring hope to many hearts.

What are your personal hobbies and favorite TV shows to binge?

I love to craft things! I enjoy drawing and painting. I am not the best at it, but I still find it to be fun! Not a lot of people know this about me, but I also love to loom-knit!
And I just finished binging season 2 of a Disney Channel/Family Channel TV show called Backstage. Since season 1, it became my absolute favorite show!

What made you pursue acting? Any other careers you’ve always wanted to explore?

I started acting at the age of 4. I pursued acting because it is something I have always loved! Acting is a way of stepping into somebody else’s shoes, and seeing through their eyes. So I see acting to be very fun, yet educational. You become educated about the world around you and the people in it.
If I could explore any other career, I would probably go down the music path. I enjoy singing and I would love to learn how to play an instrument!

Who are some of your biggest inspirations?

Raven Symone is an inspiration to me! She actually inspired me to start acting. I am also inspired by many people I have worked with and am currently working with such as Lucy Hale, Gabrielle Union, and Ava DuVernay. Historical figures such as Nelson Mandela, Matrin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, Maya Angelou, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks inspire me. And my wonderful family and friends that are doing such great things inspire and motivate me every single day!
