This week, Quvenzhané Wallis visited with our friends China Anne McClain, Stefanie Scott, Sierra McCormick, and Jake Short on the set of A.N.T. Farm.

She recently starred in a movie called Beasts of the Southern Wild and is the youngest person to get an Oscar nomination for Best Actress! The Louisiana-born Wallis schoolgirl, who had no previous acting experience, has been announced as the youngest ever Oscar nominee for Best Actress in a Leading Role, in critically acclaimed film Beasts of The Southern Wild.  The record was previously held by Keisha Castle-Hughes, who was 13 when she was nominated for Whale Rider (2003).  She was only five when she tried out for the movie and landed the role — isn’t that incredible?!  Quvenzhané tweeted: “Last night was so much fun. Visited the set of ANT Farm. Thanks China, Jake, Sierra, and the ANT Farm cast.”  And A.N.T. Farm isn’t the only Disney Channel show, Quvenzhane is a fan of — she also likes Shake It Up!  “Yeah, I love [fashion],” she told Vogue. “I love Bella Thorne and Zendaya Coleman – that song, ‘Fashion Is My Kryptonite’.”

Beasts was directed by Benh Zeitlin, and shot on location in New Orleans with a crew that included Zeitlin’s friends and his sister.  Since her breakout role in ‘Beasts’, Wallis has now been cast in British director Steve McQueen’s upcoming movie Twelve Years a Slave which also stars Paul Giamatti, Brad Pitt, and Michael Fassbender.  What do you think of this?
