Bailee Madison
Bailee Madison draws similiarities with her "Trophy Wife" character. For one, the two girls take pride in being over-achievers. Bailee puts her competitive spirit on full display a bit later when we play a Presidential trivia game in honor of Presidents' Day. The young actress tells stories of working with an accomplished roster of other screen gems including Jennifer Aniston, Marcia Gay Harden, Teri Polo, and more. Currently starring alongside Malin Akerman, Bailee and her cast mates are anxiously awaiting word if their show will get renewed for a second season. She is also excited to share images from her very first magazine cover shoot.
"Trophy Wife" airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
