Photography: Amanda Peixoto-Elkins Styling: Franzy Staedter Hair: Sienree Makeup: Grace Phillips We at BELLO mag are obsessed by Breanna Yde and we are happy we got the chance to chat with her about Nickelodeon’s School of Rock and more: You’re originally from Sydney, Australia. When did you and your family decide to move to the States? My family decided to move back to the states when I was around 2 years old. So I was still very small and had no clue what was happening! We visit there often though and its one of my absolute favorite places in the world. You star in Nickelodeon’s show ‘School of Rock’ which is now in its third season. Can you tease anything about what is coming up on the show? We haven’t gotten too far into the season yet, but I can say that we have lots of adorable animals this season and specifically in one episode…I can’t wait for everyone to watch! Your character Tomika could be described as the tomboy of the group. Would you say you have any similarities to her? Tomika and I share many similarities- like how we both love music, we both are pretty chill and not really high maintenance, and we are definitely not girly girls LOL. I understand you play several instruments including piano, guitar and bass, as well as singing. Which one did you start first? I play piano, guitar, drums, bass and I sing. Technically I started singing before I learned any of those instruments, but piano was the first instrument I learned! Is your family musical? Yes, my entire family is pretty musical actually, so my interest in music came naturally because I was surrounded by it! We love having karaoke nights, where we all just have fun and sing. My dad plays both piano and guitar too, it’s always fun jamming out with him. Later this year you’re starring in the Nickelodeon TV movie ‘Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library,’ which has been described as a daring, dangerous adventure of escape. What would you say the most daring thing you’ve done is? I would say the most daring thing I’ve ever done was pursue singing and acting professionally. I left my school, my friends and moved from San Diego to go after my dream. I do school online now, which is a challenge, but I get to do what I love and that is all that matters. You have been in a lot of Nickelodeon shows and movies, ’The Haunted Hathaways,’ ‘Santa Hunters’ and ‘Instant Mom.’ Out of all the characters you play in these projects, which one would you say is most like you and why? Between all of my Nickelodeon characters I would say I’m a mix between Frankie Hathaway and Tomika. Frankie was very mischievous and I would say I am too sometimes, but I’m also like Tomika because we love music and our personalities are similar. You’ve done lots of covers of songs, what’s your favourite one to sing? My favorite song to sing right now is “What Do I know?” on Ed Sheeran’s new album! Who in the music industry would you love to collaborate with one day? Someone in the music industry that I would LOVE to collaborate with would be Ed Sheeran. He is such a talented artist and I love all of his work. I got to meet him recently and he was such a nice guy! Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
