Auli'i Cravalho Once Thought That Her 'Moana' Audition Offer Was a Scam

Auli'i Cravalho Once Thought That Her 'Moana' Audition Offer Was a Scam

Auli’i Cravalho might have not been the voice of Moana if things had worked out differently.

The 17-year-old actress admitted to Variety in a new interview that she and her mom actually thought the audition offer was a scam.

“My mom and I, for sure, thought it was a scam — absolutely!” she shared. “We got the email, and it was on my school email because I had submitted the audition [for a school project] and was hoping for the best for my friends and I. And I got an email back saying, ‘Hey, I have another project that I’m hoping that you’ll audition for if you’ll just come into the Hawaii Five-0 casting studio.’”

Auli’i continues, remembering “showing it to my mom and saying, ‘OK, first of all I think she used the wrong ‘your’ and I don’t know how I feel about this.’ My mom said she’d come with me and make sure everything was legit and shake hands and be professional and if anything, at least we’d know where the Hawaii Five-0 casting studio is.”

Good thing it wasn’t a scam and it ultimately led Auli’i to her breakout role, and from there, Rise.

The stars of NBC’s Rise are sharing their thoughts after learning that the series has been canceled after one season.

Shannon Purser, Auli’i Cravalho, and their co-stars took to Twitter to reflect following the network’s announcement on Friday (May 11).

“Man. This really hurts,” she added.

The one-hour drama focused on a working-class high school drama department and the students as they come alive under a passionate teacher and family man whose dedication to the program galvanizes the entire town.

It also starred Ted Sutherland, Josh Radnor, Damon J. Gillespie, Rosie Perez, Marley Shelton, Amy Forsyth, and Taylor Richardson.

Auli'i Cravalho Hasn't Splurged On Anything Since Getting Her First Big Paycheck

Auli'i Cravalho Hasn't Splurged On Anything Since Getting Her First Big Paycheck

Auli’i Cravalho joins Damon J. Gillespie at the 2018 NBCUniversal Summer Press Day on Wednesday afternoon (May 2) in Universal City, Calif.

Speaking with CNBC recently, the 17-year-old Rise actress opened up about how she’s saving every penny she’s earned since her breakout in Moana – and how she hasn’t made a huge purchase yet.

“I have not treated myself with any of my paychecks at all,” Auli’i shared. “I’m still in high school, so thinking about college, putting that away.”

College is the number one thing on her mind, too.

“Growing up in Hawaii I thought, ‘Well, somewhere in the mainland, somewhere where I can make it big and get a really good education. Now I’m looking at NYU, I’m looking at Julliard because, well, Julliard is Julliard,” she says.

Auli’i adds, “I’m realizing college applications are kind of sucky. They’re really hard. But I know they’re well worth it.”

FYI: Auli’i is wearing Alexis Bittar jewelry and Sam Edelman shoes.
