AMERICA - American actress Chelsea Rae Bernier, who has acted in several musicals and TV shows like Thoroughly Modern Millie and California Girls, takes on the role of a Barbie doll in the world premiere of the musical Barbie Live at Marina Bay Sands.

The 24-year-old spoke to My Paper about her experiences on Barbie Live and her thoughts on the stereotypical notions that her on-screen persona has perpetrated.

How was it like getting into the role of Barbie?

I feel that I've been preparing for it my whole life. I work really hard to be a positive role model and a kind person to those around me.

Physically, I think that beauty is only skin deep. So as long as you exercise and eat healthy - which is what I do - then that's all that matters.

What were some characteristics that you had to bring across?

Well, I think that the main thing about Barbie is the message which the brand brings: That you can be whoever and do anything that you want to do. So I used that motto to help cue me and my performance.

Do you have any childhood memories of Barbie?

I was definitely a fan of Barbie in my childhood. She's a multi-generational icon (through which) I was able to share stories with my grandmother and mother.
