Busy Philipps’ child Birdie Silverstein to star in new LGBTQ+ series With Love
Birdie Silverstein is stepping into the spotlight alongside mom Busy Philipps in the new Amazon title With Love.
Birdie is set to play a non-binary recurring character in the show. This will be the 12-year-old’s first major acting role since guest starring in Philipps hit series Cougar Town.
Series creator Gloria Calderón Kellett took to Twitter to express her excitement for the casting announcement.
“More casting news. I first met Birdie when they were a baby. It is thrilling that I now get to have them on my little show,” she wrote.
Like their character, the young talent also identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.
Back in 2020, Philipps talked about Birdie’s coming out journey on her podcast Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best.
“For those of you who are my friends listening at home, this is the first time you’re hearing that Birdie is gay and out,” she said.
She continued: “Birdie told us at 10 years old and we immediately…I mean obviously, I knew that Birdie knew.”
