Grace VanderWaal Talks Playing the Lead in 'Stargirl'!

Grace VanderWaal is making her acting debut!

The 15-year-old singer is set to star in the highly-anticipated Stargirl adaptation for Disney’s new streaming service, which is due out next year.

Grace rose to super-stardom in 2016 when she won America’s Got Talent at the young age of 12 and earned comparison to superstars like Taylor Swift in the process.

The “Stray” singer calls her turn to acting “nerve-racking,” – particularly considering Stargirl’s massive built-in fanbase.

“It’s super pressuring, because I know also how people are with books,” she told Vanity Fair in a recent interview. “They want it to be like [how they were imagining], so I’m like, ‘What if I’m not like Stargirl?’”

Stargirl will be released in 2020.
