Madison Davenport's on-screen relationship with her "mother" Taryn Manning for the newest film "A Light Beneath Their Feet" was a heartfelt and honest depiction of an bond built by unconditional love. Their newest movie follows the two as they navigate the complexities of being in a parent-child relationship where someone suffers from bipolar disorder.

And while Davenport and Manning's charisma made their mother-daughter relationship strong while filming, there's another familial bond that's much stronger in Davenport's life: her own mother.

We recently spoke with Madison Davenport about her real-life relationship that inspired her on-screen one. Ahead, find out her most memorable moment with her mother, where she sees the progression of her career going, and more!

What was the most memorable moment you had while filming "A Light Beneath Their Feet"?
The scene where me and Taryn are dressing up in the movie was the best! In it, we go to our favorite store, and this is the moment that Beth decides she is going to stay with her mom and not UCLA. She's coming to terms with that and her mom takes her to this shop so they dress up in the craziest clothes. And I just remember how much fun we had that day. We really were Beth and Gloria in that moment.

What do you hope people will take away from the film?
I really hope that people leave and they realize how lucky they are to have their loved ones and that they can see that having a disorder doesn't define who you are. You're still a human being, you have emotions and go through everything that everyone else goes through, but it's just amplified. I also hope that people can see that when you love somebody, sometimes you have to let them go.

Because this film is so centered around a mother-daughter relationship, what is the most memorable moment you've had about your own mother?
I have a lot of memorable experiences with her. I love her so much and I wouldn't be where I was without her and her belief in my skills. This last summer, I went to Shakespeare school at LAMDA and afterwards I called my mother and I was like, "Why don't I just book you a flight over here and let's have a vacation?" So we went on a mother daugher vacation to Ireland, my motherland. We went to Dublin to Killarney to the Cliffs of Moher. She never thought that she wanted to go to Ireland since I was the one who always wanted to, and it turned out to be the most fun we've ever had together. It made me realize that she's the best travel companion ever.

If you could work with anyone else in the entertainment industry who would you want to work with?
There's so many people! I basically have a running list. I would love to work with Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, and Leonardo DiCaprio. I really admire Streep and DiCaprio because they can really transform into their characters and I find it incredible.

You mentioned before that you really fell in love with all aspects of the television industry, so do you see yourself experimenting with writing or directing?
Of course! Right now I'm writing and exploring what it's like to be a director and I would love to be a producer of my own films. I also want to get into the music industry. I've written a few songs and getting to work with Robert [Rodriguez] really inspired me to do that. He edits, composes, directs, writes, and he's a very inspirational person to be around. His saying is, "If you want something to be done right, you do it yourself." Which is why he does everything. I'd love to do the same.
