Article on Sidney Fullmer, Star of Saige Paints the Sky

Saige Paints the Sky Sidney Fullmer

Sidney Fullmer and Jane Seymour in "An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky"

Growing up, Sidney Fullmer often played with American Girl dolls. So it was a surprise when the actress was cast as the lead in “An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky” and her dream came true of becoming a real life American Girl.

“I was lucky to work with such a great cast and crew for my first film,” Fuller says. “It was amazing to finally be making a movie.”

  15. Juliet XD says:

    really is a neat article… XD
    BTY, i just looked on the Barns and Noble site; it said that mini sagie is “not avalible from BN online”. it sounds like you can only get her in stores….. that stinks. may have to visit the store now….

  16. A few days before the Saige mini doll was supposed to be out (yesterday), I had actually stopped by Barnes and Noble. At the kid’s section where the AG books and mini dolls were supposed to be, the shelves were mostly empty. They had GOTY books and some Historical ones, but no mini dolls.
    Maybe they were getting shelf space ready for the Saige mini doll? :O

  17. I wonder what Sidney looks like with blonde hair?

  18. Karen K says:

    If you go to you can see her picture with blonde hair.

    I just watched the movie with my two daughters and we loved it!!!! I felt really bad for Saige throughout the movie as she struggled with many obstacles, but there was still a happy ending. Can’t wait to watch it again!

  19. Cool! I can’t wait to watch the music!

  20. What? I meant movie!

  21. crazy4chrissa says:

    I CAN NOT WAIT TO WATCH THE SAIGE MOVIE!!!!!!! We’ll probably wait until it comes out on TV though. Hey, for anyone who already bought the DVD, have you checked out the “special features”? Ever since I found out about the Saige movie I’ve been hoping that the DVD would have a movie trailer for a GOTY movie for 2014. I REALLY HOPE IT DOES!!!!!

  22. Sidney Fullmer must be a great actress to play Saige! I am probably gonna be getting the movie tonight!

  23. I just saw the movie in Target today! It said that it came with some sort of special sketchbook with Saige inspired artwork. Is this a Target exclusive, or is this in other stores, as well?

  24. My mom preordered the movie, and i can’t wait to see it when it comes out on DVD! :-)

  25. Karen K says:

    There was a $10 coupon for AG included in the blu-ray edition also.

  26. Olivia, it’s a target exclusive! Cannot wait til tomorrow I’m getting the movie!(probably)

  27. Megan!!!!!! says:

    wow! that was a great article! 😀

  28. crazy4chrissa says:

    It’s cool that Target is selling the Saige movie and including a Sketchbook. I heard that Walmart is selling it and including a mini figurine of Picosso the horse. I should ask my mom if we can go to Walmart or Target soon. LOL

  29. I wonder which doll she got.

  30. misspiggy=awesome says:

    I think she and I could have fun together, yes.
    Also, does anyone have the Rainbow Loom? The rubber-band-bracelet maker? I got it today and may or may not have made 10 things already. It is addictive!! XD
    peace, love, llamas,

  31. I went to Red box last night and the Saige movie was there!

  32. Annie- that’s epic! I should check my local redbox soon to see if they have it…

  33. I got the movie just yesterday and just now finished watching it. I loved the movie it was great if it was me I would not wait to see it again!!!!! I really think that if you have not seen it you should buy it and watch it trust me you will love it. I also just read the article and that is amazing I love that I have the American girl doll of the year I love playing and taking her places….

  34. I just saw Sidney pic on IMDB. With the blonde hair, she looks like she could play Julie Albright.

  35. The Saige movie was at our redbox too! My parents went and picked it up!

  36. I just got the movie from target and watched it. It’s a really good movie and its totally worth the purchase!

    I saw the Saige movie….best movie ever. I just wished they used more parts from the book because they left out my favorite parts. I watched it online, its on NBC sometime next week. Sidney looks sooo cute as Saige. <333

  38. I saw the Saige movie. I just got Saige for my birthday at NYC American Girl store. She is so pretty! My name is Sydney too, and that’s very funny!
