Dance Moms alum, author, and now actress Maddie Ziegler has had a crazy year — and she’s just getting started! The 14-year-old powerhouse just teased that she did a photoshoot for Vanity Fair with her Book of Henry co-stars Jacob Tremblay and Jaeden Wesley.
“me and my boys for @vanityfair,” Maddie captioned the photo. “can’t wait till everyone sees the book of henry !!”
In the photo, she is sitting with one leg folded over the other, looking prim and proper in a beret and high socks. Jacob and Jaeden are similarly attired, but Jacob is slumped backwards, looking mysterious.
It’s huge that Maddie is being featured in Vanity Fair, but we can’t say that we’re surprised!
If you’ve ever picked up a stuffed animal and pretended you were lifting it up over Pride Rock, you’re certainly not alone — 13-year-old singer Grace VanderWaal reenacted the iconic film The Lion King with kittens!
Grace posted a video on Twitter of the two snuggly, wiggly little treasures. She is lifting one up as the opening notes of “The Circle of Life” plays on a laptop, and it’s too cute.
“#TheCircleofLife,” Grace captioned the video. The scene is reminiscent of Rafiki lifting baby Simba over Pride Rock in the beginning of the famous Disney film.
Her fans are melting from all the cuteness! Check out the video below.
They also seem like they’re getting to be pretty good friends! A Twitter exchange on Tuesday (April 25) sent fans of both Simone and Normani spiraling for a few reasons.
The exchange shows that the two are totally conspiring together about something — or, at the very least, that Normani has some secret insight into Simone‘s life! Fans are obsessed with the two’s friendship, and very much want to know what is going on.
Here’s what went down.
First, Simone tweeted this seemingly innocuous comment.
Showrunner I. Marlene Kingrevealed that Sasha‘s age actually played a factor in the decision.
“Sasha is a great story because we had read Sasha for Hanna and we were going to test her at the studio or network … and then we found out she was only 12 years old — not that she couldn’t play a teenager, but I knew what Hanna was going to do and I was like, ‘Do we really want a 12-year-old doing those things?’” she says.
Marlene adds, “But also, they can only work a certain amount of hours under the age of 16. So that’s when we just said she’s Alison.”
“She read with a few of the girls as Alison, she was several years younger than all of them, but she scared the hell out of everyone in a good way.”
Raven’s brain is on fire — really, it is — on The 100.
Actress Lindsey Morgan opened up about what tonight’s all-new episode means for Raven and Skaikru.
“I think because she has been through so much, she was in denial about what was happening to her mind,” Lindsey says of Raven’s unwillingness to accept her fate. “Even with Abby’s warning, Raven wasn’t listening to it. There was a part of her that didn’t want to hear it– that there was something killing her.”
“There was also a giant part of her that felt, even if something was going to kill me, I’m going to do what I can. I’m going to help my friends even if it kills me and I’m going to make it.”
Lindsey adds that now, as she’s having seizures and hallucinations, Raven is going big with what life she has left to live.
“I feel Raven finally is accepting her mortality in a new way that she’s never accepted it before…and the fact that she’s going to actively stop trying to find a solution for her friends and focus on herself is a sign that she’s accepting her death.”
“She’s going to fulfill her last dying wish as selfish as it may be,” she says.
