Who Is the Oscar-Nominated Actress, Quevenzhane Wallis?
Description:It’s a name that’s not easy to say, but a name to know. We’re talking about Quevenzhane Wallis–the 9-year old star of the Oscar-nominated film, Beasts of the Southern Wild. This 4th grader is truly making a name for herself.
“It just came to me and it was something that I didn’t even expect. Something that wouldn’t happen to someone this kind of age,” Wallis said.
Young Quevenzhane is right. It’s not something that typically happens to a kid her age.(2:11)
