Tim Gunn: "Sofia the First" show teaches wonderful lessons about moral character



The Sofia the First show premieres 1/11.

Gunn’s royal steward character, Baileywick, helps the young Sofia adapt to royal life after her mother marries a king. Baileywick not only helps Sofia (voiced by Ariel Winters) dress like a royal, but he also guides her on developing manners, grace and an independent spirit.

Gunn says: “I feel very comfortable in this role,” he says.  The show teaches wonderful lessons about moral character

Gunn, 59, says he enjoys sometimes veering from the expected career path. A few years ago, Marvel Comics turned him into a superhero to save a fashion exhibit.

Disney launched the characters in a TV movie just before Thanksgiving. It attracted an audience of 5.2 million viewers. The regular series debuts Jan. 11.

The message of “Sofia the First” is a good one, Gunn says: Looking the part only gets you halfway there and then you have to act like a leader and be nice to people at the same time. “If I had a child, I would want my child watching this for the lesson in moral character.”
