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

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.”

Grace VanderWaal Talks About Getting Used to Life After 'America's Got Talent'

Grace VanderWaal is looking cool on the cover of Teen Vogue‘s 2018 Music Issue, which is out now.

Here’s what the 14-year-old America’s Got Talent superstar had to say…

On staying true to oneself: “I think everyone’s just trying to be someone else nowadays. The world is so big and there’s so many people and there’s only one you, and that’s so special and unique to think about.”

On adapting to her post-America’s Got Talent life and defining her goals: “At first it was so overwhelming and I had no idea what to do, and now I feel so much better about my life, because, number one, I feel more headstrong about what I want.”

On those who still refer to her as “the girl from America’s Got Talent”: “I mean, if you will forever remember me as the girl from America’s Got Talent, that’s cool, ’cause I am. If you wanna look into me and what I’ve done recently, that’s cool, too. I don’t really care at all, [because] at least you remember me and you’re thinking about me.”

Grace VanderWaal To Star in Disney's 'Stargirl' Movie

Grace VanderWaal just booked her first acting project!

According to Deadline, the 14-year-old singer/songwriter will star 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.

But the delicate scales of popularity suddenly shift, and Stargirl is shunned for everything that makes her different. Somewhere in the midst of Stargirl’s arrival and rise and fall, normal Leo Borlock has tumbled into love with her.

Stargirl is one of the first original films that will go through the company’s new streaming platform.

Amandla Stenberg, Grace VanderWaal & Jenna Ortega Step Out For Teen Vogue Summit

Amandla Stenberg wants young people to speak out about issues that are important to them!

The 19-year-old actor stepped out at the 2018 Teen Vogue Summit on Saturday (June 2) at The New School in New York City.

Amandla was joined at the event by Grace VanderWaal, Jenna Ortega and Francia Raisa.

During the summit, Amandla took to the stage with The Hate U Give co-star Common to talk about the upcoming flick and speaking out on important issues.

“You’re not always going to have the answers. To gain the strength to speak up for something you have to allow yourself the time and space to know what you’re about,” Amandla said.

FYI: Amandla is wearing an Adriana Iglesias outfit and Pedro García boots. Francia is wearing Monika Chiang shoes.

Grace VanderWaal Is Still Figuring Out Her Exact Sound

Grace VanderWaal has landed her first ever magazine cover with Girls’ Life!

The 14-year-old musician, who won season 12 of America’s Got Talent, opened up in the June/July 2018 issue about social media, not feeling the word “famous”, and how she’s still figuring it all out one day at a time.

“I don’t think I really know my exact style or my sound yet,” she shared. “I want my music to evolve to become more me.”

Grace adds, “But I don’t know. I think I’m going to keep writing and just see where it goes.”

Later this month, Grace will be hitting the road with Imagine Dragons on their tour, something she’s really excited for.

“I’m used to the small venues I usually play, but this is going to be stadiums and arenas, which is so cool,” she shared.
