Grace VanderWaal Talks Playing the Lead in 'Stargirl'!

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.

Grace VanderWaal Says She Wants to Look Like An Alien

Grace VanderWaal is opening up more about her style!

The 15-year-old songstress recently talked about fashion and her funky style, and admitted she hopes to look like an alien.

“I’m really drawn to funky stuff. The whole alien-esque aesthetic is beautiful. I just want to look like an alien. Always alien vibes with me,” she told Who What Wear. “But I pretty much go for whatever I feel fire in. It doesn’t even matter what it looks like; it matters how I feel in it. If my clothes change the way I walk, then I know I am in something perfect.”

“I’ve always sort of known what I like and what I want to wear. Honestly, the best way my style has evolved since [America's Got Talent] has to do with the people around me getting to know that and letting me have more freedom,” Grace added. “I also love that I’m getting older because all my life, I’ve always loved high fashion and editorial stuff, but it used to be kind of weird for me to wear it. So I’m really happy that I get to experiment with that a little bit now. I just recently wore Marc Jacobs to a red carpet, and I loved that.

Wonder Park, out TODAY, tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive. One magical day, June is running through the woods to find her way home where she discovers an old rollercoaster car and climbs inside. She suddenly finds herself in Wonderland, an amusement park she had created in her mind and put aside.

All of her rides and characters are brought to life but are falling into disarray without her. Now, with the help of her fun and lovable park characters, June will have to put the wonder back in Wonderland before it is lost forever.

Grace VanderWaal Admits She Was 'Probably The Most Difficult Contestant' on 'America's Got Talent'

Grace VanderWaal Admits She Was 'Probably The Most Difficult Contestant' on 'America's Got Talent'

Grace VanderWaal made quite a revelation on the Zach Sang Show!

The 15-year-old singer talked about her time on competition show America’s Got Talent, where she won season 11 and got her rise to fame. She opened up about how she probably wasn’t the easiest to work with with producers, when she stuck up for what she wanted.

“At the end [of America's Got Talent], I wanted to sing ‘Clay’, they wanted me to sing ‘I Don’t Know My Name’ again,” she told Zach Sang. “And throughout that whole process, I was probably the most difficult contestant.”

“They let you have freedom if you put your foot down to have freedom,” Grace continued. “They were very very lenient for me in everything. In what I wore, in what I sang. So at the end, I was just like, “No, I’m gonna do this,” and they were like, “You might get voted off, we’ve been doing this a long time. It’ll be such a moment if you sing ‘I Don’t Know My Name’ at the very end, at the finals.”

“I just had this intuition of like, ‘No, this is the song,’” she added.
