Every little girl dreams of being a princess, and while Michaela Conlin isn’t there yet, she was at least able to be a friend to a princess in Enchanted. And though she only appears briefly on screen, Michaela is definitely living her fairytale dream.
First, she got to work on the film with Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and currently has a recurring role on the hit FOX show Bones with David Boreanaz. As for working with McDreamy, she tells OK!, “He’s such a wonderful actor, so for me, that’s what makes him sexy!” But don’t expect her to divulge whom she thinks is sexier laughing, “I can’t answer that!”
Michaela did however share that she prefers drama to romantic comedy. “Romantic comedies tend to make me a bit depressed,” she explains. “They almost always have a perfect ending with everything tied up perfectly.”
The Allentown, PA native also tells OK! that she’s living her life-long dream, saying, “It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.” With supportive parents and older sister she says she doesn’t know where she would be without them.
For now, Michaela is working on a new project that she is developing into a short film. With such a busy schedule, it’s hard for the 29-year-old to find time for herself. When she isn’t working she says visiting her family, working in the garden and traveling occupy her time. “I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some great cities,” she mentions. “I love to buy a guide book and get on a plane.”
