Ariel Gade: America’s Newest Starlet?
By Randy J. Klodz
Ariel Gade (yes, she’s named after Ariel, the Mermaid character from
Disney’s “The Little Mermaid") has worked with such actors as Jack Black,
Jennifer Connelly and Ben Stiller. She’'s done comedy with 2004’s “Envy” and
she will co-star in “Dark Water,” a suspense thriller due to hit movie screens
across America on July 8. Oh, and she’'s 7.
The bright, young actress has already worked with some of the top acting
talent in the business and the sky’s the limit for her success. Sure, she’s
not living the life of a typical 7-year-old, but Gade makes the best of it.
She’s home schooled three hours daily and then spends the majority of
her afternoons learning lines and perfecting her trade. After all, she’s new
to the business, but seems to have a good grasp on what she has to do to rise
to the top. “It’s pretty easy, it’s not all that hard to learn lines, sometimes
it’s hard to remember the words, but I practice them until I get them down,”
Gade said, offering the advice that practice often makes perfect.
Gade’s latest project, starring alongside Jennifer Connelly as Ceci Williams,
in the dark, suspense-filled film “Dark Water” might scare people of all ages,
but she did her best to not get spooked during filming, after all, she had
a bit of a creepy experience before shooting began. “Before I even got the
part, I was over at my manager’s house, and she had dark water coming out
of her shower.”
With “Dark Water,” scheduled to hit theaters across the nation and Gade’s
upcoming project, the ABC drama series “Invasion” due this fall, Gade is well
on her way to reaching her goal of acting, singing and dancing. Look out Linsday
