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

I didn’t know Sia, but I think she made the final choice for me to be in the video. I heard she wanted somebody who’s a dancer, since the face would be covered.

JJ: How do you feel that people originally thought you were Maddie? Are you excited to also separate yourself as dancer and make your mark?

PRYMRR: At first, I was like ‘Wait! What? I did that!’ and then I realized that it was a really big compliment. It’s really exciting to make my mark as an artist, and it’s cool that everyone is noticing the dancing I did in this video. I had a lot of fun. I started off the shoot in a new peach dress, and got as much dirt on it as possible. They destroyed it, ripped it, and stretched it. They had fake dirt, but I didn’t think it looked real. So I rolled around in the dirt instead, it’s a lot of fun when a job lets me be myself. I’m a tomboy! The director even included the part where I climbed out from under the train, it wasn’t in the original script. I made it up. I was just playing.
