The numbers are in and Quvenzhane Wallis is one of Teen Vogue‘s ‘Young Hollywood 2014’ choices. The 11-year-old star of the upcoming remake of Annie was included among a number of other teens who are making waves in Tinseltown.
“Playing Annie is a dream role for me,” says Wallis of her role as the famous orphan. “I loved watching the original movie, and now everyone will be dancing and singing right along with me.”
When she is not working on the set, Quvenzhane is busy being an ordinary kid. “I like to cheer, play basketball and volleyball, read, swim, and ride my bike for fun,” shares the star.
Keke Palmer, 21, and Jaden Smith,16, were also named as greats on the ‘Young Hollywood 2014’ list. When asked about her ability to successfully work in various fields of entertainment Keke told Teen Vogue, “It’s just me. It’s just Keke. You like me or you don’t. At the end of the day, I have to live my life for me.” Palmer will be the first African American to portray Cinderella on Broadway. She also has a hit talk show called ‘Just Keke’ that airs on BET’s network.
