Exclusive: It's NOT Maddie Ziegler! Meet the Young Star in Sia's New 'Never Give Up' Video

Dancer extraordinaire Maddie Ziegler has almost become synonymous with Sia, having become her muse in 2014 with the premiere of her “Chandelier” video.

The two went on to release five videos together, including “Chandelier,” “Elastic Heart,” “Cheap Thrills,” “Big Girls Cry” and “The Greatest.”

In each video, Maddie dons Sia‘s signature wig — either in two-toned black and white or platinum blonde.

So, naturally, when Sia released her lyric video for “Never Give Up” on Tuesday, it was immediately reported that it was Maddie playing the lead role.

Easy mistake! The lead character is wearing a nylon mask, so you can’t see her face.

But if you look closely, you can see that the dancer is younger than 14-year-old Maddie.

In fact, this upcoming star’s name is Prymrr (pronounced “premiere). She is an 11-year old dancer, actor (and rapper!), and we think you’re going to love her.

Check out our exclusive Q&A:

JJ: Congratulations on being featured in Sia‘s new video. So amazing! How did you hear about the project and what was the audition like?

PRYMRR: We saw the posting for a lost girl for an RCA mega-artist music video. They recognized me when I got there, from a Pussy Riot video I did.

    I’ve generated $84 ,000 at this time this season working online but I’m a full time college student . I’m benefiting from a web based business marketing opportunity I read about and additionally I’ve generated this kind of decent cash . It is really so easy to use not to mention I am just too thankful that I found out about it . The possibility using this is end-less . Here’s what I do>>>

    You only stay young and small for so long…then someone better or more interesting comes along.

    “Dancer/actor/rapper” with a stupid spelling of a desperate-to-be-cool name.
    These gals need to focus on school, the Sias of the world drop them eventually, they blow out a knee and their careers are over.
    Seen it 100 times.

      You have a disturbing level of anger, McFly. I hope running around the internet leaving these nasty little rage bombs you call comments helps you to work through whatever’s troubling you.

      • Marty McFly

        And you have an unoriginal and terribly lame manner of trying to insert yourself into every comment.
        Are you in the industry? No? I thought not, because if you were, you would understand it was not a “nasty little rage bomb,” it’s a daily occurrence in the business.
        I hope being your own Aunt Gladys helps you get in touch with your gender identity issues.

          Haha whatever, man. Nothing says cool industry insider like throwing your weight around in a comment section.
