Maddie Ziegler seems to be everywhere these days, and she has no plans to stop being a mega star anytime soon.
After gaining success as one of the stars of Dance Moms back in 2011, and then becoming Sia’s dance muse over the past few years, Ziegler has made her way into the acting world. She voiced a character in Leap! and appeared in The Book of Henry, which hit theaters in June 2017. Now she’s apparently working on another film project.
During an interview with Galore magazine, the 15-year-old star revealed that in addition to working on a novel called The Audition — which comes out in Australia in November — she is focused on making another movie next summer.
“I’m going to be filming for a movie in July and August, so I’m excited for that,” Ziegler told Galore in September. “I can’t release what it is, but I can’t wait. So, there’s just a bunch of things.”
Ziegler recently admitted that even though she still dances (and is creating her own clothing line), movies are a big focus for her. So much so, she revealed that Jennifer Lawrence is the one actress who she hopes to emulate with her career, and we totally approve.
What type of role do you think Ziegler should play next?
