“I don’t think we could have done this movie unless Quvenzhané came along,” said Jamie of Miss Wallis’ incredible acting skills. “It’s sort of like she’s tailor-made for the role in a sense. I would challenge you to find a girl who personifies ‘Annie’ better than Quvenzhané does.”

The veteran star, who portrays the wealthy Will Stacks, may be right. Although many young actors memorize their lines well, few convey the energy needed to thrive in a role such as ‘Annie’ like Quvenzhane. The tween runs and sings in a way that convinces the audience that she and the orphaned character are one.

You can see Quvenzhane in action when Annie comes to theaters on December 19, 2014. The latest issue of ESSENCE hits newsstands on November 7, 2014.
