A huge congratulations to Actorsiter Kaitlyn DIas, who is starring as “RILEY” in the hit movie opening this FRIDAY called “INSIDE OUT” by PIXAR and DISNEY STUDIOS. She’s all over the press and here are some excerpts:
Kaitlyn Dias hits the purple carpet at the premiere of her new film, Inside Out, held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on Monday (June 8).
In case you didn’t know, Kaitlyn is the voice of Riley in the movie!
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.

“When my mom told me [I booked the role], I was absolutely ecstatic. I was practically bouncing off the walls just from excitement over it,” Kaitlyn EXCLUSIVELY tells M.
“Inside Out is about Riley who suddenly moves from Minnesota to San Francisco and we totally get to see how her emotions react inside her head,” Kaitlyn dishes. “And since most of the story is in her mind, she’s not just one of the characters, she’s also the setting.”
Can you imagine watching a movie and hearing your voice speaking back to you, only with a different face?! We bet it’s a super odd feeling! While it may have been at first, it seems like Kaitlyn has gotten used to the idea of forever being the voice of a Disney character.
“Watching the movie back is kind of surreal. I’m not used to having my voice associated with a different face so it’s kind of weird for me,” Kaitlyn admits. “Weird in a good way. Definitely.”
From POP STAR ONLINE:
Can you tell us a bit more about your character? Do you relate to her?
Riley is your average 11 year old girl who just moved from Minnesota to San Francisco. I can definitely relate to how Riley felt out of place in her new home. I transferred schools when I went to high school, so I didn’t know that many people. But I made lots of new friends!
How will you be celebrating premiere day?
I’ll be going to the premiere and celebrating with my co-stars! On June 19th, I’m going to my local theater with friends and family to see the movie.
Any cool behind-the-scenes moments you can share from INSIDE OUT?
For one of my lines, I had to just improv and mumble something. So, being the total nerd that I am, I mumbled the name of a planet from a Sci-Fi TV show.
