Grace VanderWaal Squeals With Excitement About Her First Movie Role in 'Stargirl'

Just last month, it was announced that Grace VanderWaal would be starring in Disney’s upcoming Stargirl.

The film, based on Jerry Spinelli‘s book of the same name, centers on Leo Borlock, who follows the unspoken rule at Mica Area High School: don’t stand out–under any circumstances! Then Stargirl arrives at Mica High and everything changes–for Leo and for the entire school.

After 15 years of home schooling, Stargirl bursts into tenth grade in an explosion of color and a clatter of ukulele music, enchanting the Mica student body.

Grace recently spoke with ET Canada about her first ever acting role.

“I am so excited!” she exclaimed. “I have never auditioned for anything. I did the lines, it was really weird, but it was comfortable once it started rolling.”

Grace added that she was very confident in her audition afterwards, “I was pretty sure that I got it because I felt that she [casting director] really liked me. But I didn’t know, because I’d never auditioned for anything. But [then], I did and I’m so excited about it.”
