Her face might be a familiar one to you as she has starred in many hit films and TV shows. McKenna Grace played young Carol in Captain Marvel, Judy in Annabelle Comes Home, and a young Sabrina in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Now this talented young girl is on her way to producing.
It is definitely not uncommon for many actors to dabble in directing and producing and go into it full time.
However, it is definitely unexpected for a 13-year old to become a producer. Many people expect such a young actor to be only capable of acting.
But she is defying all expectations.
Young McKenna Grace is set to star in and produce ‘Rabbit Cake’ which is based on a book. Annie Hartnett published Rabbit Cake back in 2017 which became best book of the year by many critics.
Rabbit Cake is described as a dark humour comedy novel based on Elvis Babbitt. Young Elvis (who is a girl) relies on facts and science to understand the world around her. When her mother drowns while sleepwalking, she is left questioning her place in the world.
Many reviews write that the book deals with grief and family dynamics from the perspective of a young girl.
McKenna Grace is set to produce alongside Alix Madigan. In fact, she was the producer of ‘Winter’s Bone’ which was nominated for an oscar.
Susan Johnson who worked on ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ will be the director.
McKenna Grace is an amazing example at how age is not and should not be a barrier to doing what you love.
Besides just talent and potential, she is showing that she has tenacity by putting herself and her work out there.
Let her be an inspiration to us all in one way or another.
