From the theatrical geekdom to a young TV man, there is a balance on Landry Bender The Favorite Room


When Landry Bender and her parents recently moved from the city center to Playa Vista “to take advantage of the larger beach,” she quickly closed down one part of the plan.

Amy and Trey Bender (both sports carriers) wanted to give their daughter more space within the 1,300-foot townhouse by ripping out her bedroom book.

“I want, 'No, this is the best part of the whole room! & # 39; I want something like this for a while to show my mementos, coffee table books and knackeries, ”said Bender, 19, who prepares in Hulu's“ Looking for Alaska, ”premiered. last month.

Numerous items celebrate Bender's favorite icon, Audrey Hepburn, including a coffee table book and a “Breakfast at Tiffany” lunchbox, which was a gift.

"I love her. She was an obsession with me for a while," Bender said.

Items inspired by Marc Jacobs's “Daisy” perfume and Alexa Chung's “It” are among the items inspired by the Vogue collection, with a collection of Vogue, Teen Vogue and Elle magazines.

There is a dedicated section for Broadway including books on “Hamilton” and its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda (“great inspiration” for Bender), a replica of Mary Poppins's peacock shade and a fastener of Playbills for all the shows she has seen.

“I started making community theater when I was 5 years old as I saw a play with my mom and I asked if I could do that,” Bender said. “I wasn't too good in sport, so I got my outlet when I was young.” T

It is a copy of the book “Looking at Alaska”, personalized by the author John Green, “a wonderful possession” as she grew up reading her book.

Why is your bedroom your favorite room?

I love to read, read and watch my own time. I always have peace and my “time” here.

Cute photos; why are they special?

This is from the other day at the premiere of “Looking at Alaska” – it is a photograph for me and the girls on the show that presented a replica of the phone booth from the show. We had this deep conversation about how wonderful the shoot was and how much we had. And I have one and my two youngest friends with whom I still have contact. I finished a community theater show and I had few men because I was playing a cat. They are so enthusiastic about sports as I act. We are all kinds of bond more than that though we are all so different.

Tell me about the framed photo of you and Betty White.

I have a short list of people I would like to work with or meet with, and she was there. I was working on a pilot when I was 14 years old and I was living with a group of people, and the assistant director was like “Landry, I'm working with her on Hot in Cleveland & # 39; why not come to “I went and I got a photo with Betty; she was a lover. She was working all day but she was tapping jokes and she was so big.

What else do you do here instead of sleeping?

I look at many shows; it is the best way to eliminate it. I spend a lot of time on my computer, whether it is reading or writing scripts, and I want to put my foot into it. I'm giving my general college classes online at Santa Monica City College, so I do homework for philosophy and things like that. There are many balances, but I want to.

Nice guitars and all; what you want to play?

I really love taking songs and making them acoustic and wholesome. I say but I don't think of myself as a singer, I love doing it in my room. When I was on a site in Louisiana for “Watching Alaska” I took them. I lived with myself for the first time, which was difficult at first. When instruments were in the apartment, I was very happy at home.
