Letter from the Editor

When we started Bello Mag, we originally envisioned a more approachable version of a male fashion magazine. Soon enough, we realized that our readership was much more mixed and that our content was having a much bigger impact than anticipated. It blurs the lines of gender divide, sexual orientation and breaks through the barriers society has built. Today BELLO is read in over 50 countries around the world, thanks to our not too secret sauce: a delicate balance between entertainment, fashion and lifestyle. With magazine's every issue, with every new team member, with our never ending desire to creatively stimulate our audience; it feels like we are reinventing the magazine little by little every day. It give you access to thoughts of some amazingly talented folks, and aims to motivate others to help each other, and make the earth a better place for everyone. While we talk to a wide variety of celebrities, we tend to concentrate up and coming guys and girls, as well as established men and women, that we believe the future belongs to. Our obsession is Pop Culture, which explains our overly enthusiastic consumption of shows and movies we stream on a daily base. We still get excited when we go to the movie theaters and “IT Chapter Two” is definitely a movie we suggest you check out. In this issue we are featuring interviews with two actors from IT. Wyatt Oleff (our main cover) and Taylor Frey (Spotlight). We also caught up with Matt Rife at Laugh Factory , and had to feature this talented comedian as well as our IT GUY. Not to be forgotten is our It Girl, Gideon Adlon who starred in the comedy BLOCKERS. Lastly, the amazing Elizabeth Ladlow who is also one of of our spotlights and who is living every sci-fi and fantasy fan’s dream in ANOTHER LIFE (on Netflix). We at Bello Mag hope you guys had a wonderful summer and that you are ready for all the adventures to come as we enter the last four montsh coming our way in last 4 months of 2019. We wish you an exciting read :-) Ciao Alek Editor In Chief

Wyatt Oleff The Storyteller By Alexandra Bonnet

Everyone loves a good story right? What if that story was told with so much passion and love that it could be felt through every word expressed? The kind of storytelling that leaves you pondering for days after. To be such a storyteller takes passion and Wyatt Oleff has got it. At a young age, Wyatt has already found his love and devotion in painting stories whether it be in front or behind the camera. As he puts it, “I think as an actor, I want to tell those stories and when you pull that off, there’s no other feeling like it.” In debuting his acting career, Wyatt kicked off with two huge films: IT and Guardians of the Galaxy. He shared with us his thoughts and feelings on being part of such groundbreaking movies: “I don’t really see them in that big of a way. I just kind of see them as projects and I don’t judge projects on how big or small they are. I judge them by how interesting they are and I think both of them turned out to be amazing projects and I’m just glad to be a part of them.” We dove more into his role as Stanley on IT and what it was like working on the beloved horror film.

Being on set of IT was an amazing experience for Wyatt from the story telling to forming relationships with the cast and crew. For the young actor, what truly impacted him were the people and getting to work on this amazing project together. Happy flashbacks flooded Wyatt’s thoughts as he recalled his time on set: “Especially on IT, our friendship speaks for itself. It’s just those opportunities to meet the same people who share the same passion I do and I can ask for nothing more.” When watching the film, the bond between the different cast members is truly felt, making the experience all the more powerful for the audience. A warm juxtaposition to the dark imagery displayed throughout the film. After all, the young cast on the first IT were still kicking off their careers and found themselves partaking in this giant project which felt “a lot like summer camp but you’re making a movie.” Their time together was spent mainly messing around with each other which remained the same in IT Chapter 2 even with bigger names like Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, and Chris Patt. As Wyatt shares: “You would think that we would be a little nervous or at least me but there kind of wasn’t any of that because we all got along so well. Everyone acted like their younger counterparts really similarly so given how similar to the kids they were, it was easy to talk to them and it was just really great.” But how does one prepare themselves for a horror movie? Given that the first movie takes place in the 80s, a lot of preparation was needed in order to completely immerse into that decade and that’s exactly what the young cast did. Their acting coach, Benjamin Perkins, gave them multiple packets about the 80’s culture from the lingo to the music and movies of that time. Wyatt found his own technique as well: “Personally, I made a playlist with a lot of 80s songs I think Stanley would listen to--it’s actually on Spotify: Stanley’s 80s Tracks. I fell asleep to it every night. I think the song that most relates to Stanley is ‘Forever Young’.” Now, for the horror parts of the story, Wyatt admits it was a pretty scary experience especially when the scenes moved more into the sewer scenes: “I remember we were on the set for the first time and they let us wander around. We were just walking in the little tunnels and got lost with each other, it was really scary.” Whenever ACTION was yelled, Bill Skarsgård, who plays the infamous character of Pennywise would get into character in such a way, amazing Wyatt: “He’s absolutely incredible and when he’s getting ready and stuff it’s scary dude, he’s amazing.”

The IT cast was honored with the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Award for best on screen team and for Wyatt, it was one crazy experience: “It was nerve wracking but really accomplishing at the same time and we are just happy that a lot of people liked what we made during that really special summer.” Being an actor and storyteller, this meant a lot for the actor as he himself saw the passion behind the final project making it all the more special--something he hopes to accomplish himself. With his whole life and career ahead of him, Wyatt is faced with many doors which could lead him anywhere and as he continues his journey as an actor, he also wishes to direct. A few weeks prior, he co-directed a short horror film in New York called Writer’s Block--a project they will submit to festivals. He also has a Youtube Channel with which he gets creative and loves working with people, telling them what he wants more out of them and more. Directing film is something he holds dear to his heart as a storyteller, inspired by Taika Waititi, a man who has made many movies. As the young actor outs it: “I want to tell every type of story there is. There are so many opportunities and ideas that you can express in this world and I really want to capitalize on that, tell all sorts of stories.” Figuring out his path just as he does with his vast collection of Rubik’s cubes, Wyatt is slowly setting up the blocks that allow him to be the best storyteller he can be whether it is in front or behind the camera. Passion and dedication: Wyatt Oleff has all the ingredients to fulfilling his destiny as a “teller of tales”.

Because a lot of your acting roles are in considerably heavy works, do you do anything to get yourself into that “zone”? Do you do anything to relieve that tension off set? Getting in the “zone” for my roles usually involves a lot of music. There are certain songs that allow me access places in my mind a little quicker so I rely on this a lot for certain charged moments. Relieving tension off set can come in many ways for me. There are times when being alone and reading is the best way to decompress and there are times where just hanging out with my cast and playin pool relives tension. It all really depends. What are your future goals for your career?  Do you hope to direct, produce, act with anyone specific, etc? My future goals for my career definitely involve getting behind the camera. I am currently working on a project that I intend on directing and being strictly behind the camera for. I have so many other interests when it comes to the entertainment industry I don’t see myself sticking to just one area. The more I’m on set the more I learn and want to be involved with every aspect of filming.  I am so in love with the whole process I’m sure at some point I will have tried everything.  What is one piece of advice you would give to your past self? One piece of advice I would give my past self is to trust yourself no matter what. No matter how impossible it seems in that moment, always follow your heart.

You’ve been a part of many popular shows and movies, including Days of our Lives, G.B.F., and The Carrie Diaries.  Do you think these prepared you for your first feature film, It: Chapter 2? Frankly, nothing could have prepared me for shooting IT: Chapter 2. It required a whole new level of committing to the circumstances and the character. It was an intense shoot, as the nature of the material was so graphic. I've loved the projects I have been in, but I arrived on set for IT and quickly was thrown into a literal bloody mess.  What was it like for you to act alongside such seasoned veterans like Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and more? Did you get to learn anything from them?

How do you begin to prepare to put yourself in the mindset necessary to deliver in a horror film? Luckily, IT: Chapter 2 is so much more than a horror film. Especially for my character, it's based on a real life event that Stephen King wanted to include in his novel. I was easily able to connect with what happens to my character because it's not really a stretch in today's America. Crazy things are happening, and it's no longer difficult to get in a horror mindset when you wake up in real life, turn on the news, and a horror film is seemingly playing on repeat daily. What was the most challenging part of this role?  What was the most rewarding?

My character's event is what brings the adult losers back into Derry. So, my shooting was separate from their work. I played opposite Xavier Dolan, who was a fantastic partner in crime. It is cool to be in such good company, however. I have watched their work for years (Jessica, James, etc.) so to be in a film with them is a win.

The most challenging part of the role was trying to make sure I had enough voice take after take to keep committing and screaming the way I naturally was when I was so in the scene. It all felt very real. Also, there were a few times I had to react, horrified, to something that wasn't there. But, that's why bringing your imagination so tightly into focus that it's real to you is pivotal in situations like that.

In addition to having plenty of experience with Obviously It is quite a scary, heavy film.  Did you film and TV, you have a lot of experience with and your costars do anything to relieve the theater.  Which medium would you say you tension in between takes or off set? prefer and why? Xavier and I were pretty good at enjoying ourselves between takes. There was no other choice really. It would be too much to do intense work only to have your in-between moments also feel so serious. We would hang out during the day before the night shoots to enjoy the experience of shooting such an epic film. Also, it was the salmon river run in Port Hope that week (I did have to jump into said river for part of our scenes and I did smell like fish for awhile.) But, on an unrelated note: watching those salmon work so hard to get upstream against all odds and a massive current kind of astounded me.

Bello

There is nothing like a live audience. Your energies just bounce back and forth right there, in that moment together in a theater. It's all happening in the moment, you can't pause or rewind or fast forward. I love that about theater.  It requires being truly present in the now to enjoy it. However, doing the same exact thing 8 shows a week can wear on you. I LOVE film though. I love the reach that kind of storytelling has. While I hope all my acting (fingers crossed) comes from truth, I find it easier to be  centered when it is for a camera close on you, instead of 1500 people in a theater. It's feels more  authentic to me.

Outside of acting, what are some of your hobbies? I own a business that helps infertile couples or gay couples expand their families through IVF. It's called Elevate. It's been an incredibly gratifying venture, as we have seen people obtain pregnancies who never thought they could. It's amazing seeing people become parents who have been trying for so long. I feel passionately about helping the right kind of humans to bring new life into this world. We need a new generation raised by loving, open-minded, smart people for us to build a better future. As the song goes, "What the world needs now, is love, sweet love. That's the only thing that there's just too little of. No not just for some, but for everyone." What are your goals for the future of your career? I want to continue doing projects that mean something to me and inspire me. I’m at a point in my life where I am pretty specific about what I’d like to be apart of. I feel free, and it’s improved my craft. Goals aside- I am just excited to see what is next.

Tell me more about your role on NBC's "bring the funny." My role in Bring The Funny has been a life-changing opportunity. It is my first nationally televised standup performance, and I’m so happy with how I have been perceived so far. How do you usually prep for a show? What inspires you to write your acts? I don’t have too much of a pre-show prep. I like to relax, listen to some music maybe, go over my set list. The majority of my material comes from first-hand experiences, so sometimes it just has to come to me, I can’t force it. You also star on Lifetime's "Stalked by My Doctor: A Sleepwalker's Nightmare." What would you say is the biggest challenge you have adapting to a role in a film like this compared to comedy? The movie was so much fun. In standup, I’m very much just myself, so it was fun to put myself in the mindset of someone else. Acting is a growing passion of mine, so it was a great opportunity to grow as a performer. Have you always been into comedy? I have always been into comedy; I grew up on Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey, Jim Varney, David Spade, and Robin Williams. Most kids were

watching cartoons while I was watching some of the greatest comedians of all time. It has always been a love of mine. Do you recall one of your first experiences making a group of people laugh? I do not know that I can recall my first time making a large group of people laugh. I think I was always a pretty funny kid, making my family, friends, and classmates laugh. But I never realized it was an actual “skill” until I was about fourteen. Who do you look up to in your life (whether it be for your career or just what kind of person you want to be) ? I look up to a lot of people for different reasons. A significant influence and idol of mine is Dave Chappelle. I admire how he is always true to himself and stands up for what he believes in. I appreciate how he speaks about real issues and experiences and does not conform to anyone else’s guidelines. He is just funny. Most embarrassing moment you've experienced: go! I broke my tooth and spat up my food in front of a girl on a first date. What would be the ultimate dream? I want to be in more movies than Ludacris.
