For­mer child ac­tress Kylie Bun­bury loved her time on thriller series Twisted (20132014), but she con­sid­ers play­ing ground­break­ing base­ball pitcher Ginny Baker “a dream come true” in Pitch (2016-cur­rent). “I feel this large amount of pres­sure and I’m just try­ing to be a good ac­tress,” she says.

The 27-year-old Cana­dian comes 1

from a fam­ily of ath­letes – her dad Alex (49) played soccer in Canada and Por­tu­gal and her brother Teal (26) plays for the New Eng­land Rev­o­lu­tion.

The ex-model’s first role was in 3

2011 Dis­ney movie Prom. “I didn’t know what I was do­ing. I had no idea how to act. It was purely in­stinc­tual,” she says. “I just re­mem­ber the first scene I did and the first take feel­ing so right. That’s when I knew I wanted to do this.”

Kylie is run­ning around with her dog Ziggy – she loves post­ing pho­tos of him to her In­sta­gram page @kyliebun­bury and says that “he keeps me grounded and re­mind­ing me of what’s most im­por­tant in life”.

She was ro­man­ti­cally linked to her 5

ex Twisted co-star Ash­ton Moio after post­ing an in­ti­mate snap on In­sta­gram for his birth­day ear­lier this year and gos­sip web­sites claim that they’ve been dat­ing since 2013.

Her favourite fe­male ath­lete is 6

ten­nis champ Ser­ena Wil­liams. “She is so in­tense!” says Kylie.
