Interview: Lauren Mote of ‘Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue’

posted by Nell Minow

Everyone’s favorite fairy has a new adventure: Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. And this one is special because for the first time she meets a human. I was lucky enough to interview Lauren Mote, who plays Tink’s first little girl friend.

How did you imagine that you were talking to a fairy when you were in a recording room?

First of all, I read the script and this helped me transport into Lizzy’s world and her character and also how a 9 year old girl would react to a real live fairy.

Did you have a picture of Tinker Bell to look at?

No, not at the beginning but at the last few recording sessions I had some animation to react to. But I knew what Tinkerbell looked like anyway, who doesn’t!

What’s the best way to talk to a fairy so she won’t be scared?

Gently! Because they’re so small and may get frightened easily as we’re so big to them so anyone who meets a fairy, talk quietly!

How did Lizzy feel when her father did not believe her?

She was so upset and sad that her own father couldn’t accept what she was saying to him. This also made her feel lonely so it’s a good job she had Tinkerbell as a friend to have tea parties with and make Lizzy smile!

Why was it important to rescue the fairies?

Because otherwise, Lizzy’s father would have taken Vidia (who is one of the fairies) to a museum and expose fairies to the world! Then they would have wanted to find the other fairies and catch them too. Fairies need to be free and live amongst their own kind.
