Mckenna Grace

Actress McKenna Grace enjoyed a remarkably prolific career before she even reached the age of ten, thanks to numerous roles in television series like "Designated Survivor" (ABC, 2016- ) and feature films like "Gifted" (2017). Born June 25, 2006 in Texas, Grace's acting career was launched when she auditioned for a role while her family was vacationing in Los Angeles. She made her screen debut in the series "Crash & Bernstein" (Disney XD 2012-14), playing the ill-tempered younger sister to series star Cole Jensen and his puppet best friend, and soon settled into a seemingly non-stop string of juvenile guest roles in daytime and primetime series, including a recurring role on "The Young and the Restless" (CBS/HDTV, 1973- ), as well as tween-oriented programming like "Dog with a Blog" (Disney Channel, 2012-15) and animated series ("Pickle and Peanut," Disney XD, 2015- ). Grace landed recurring roles on several series, playing the adolescent version of Jennifer Morrison's Emma Swan on "Once Upon a Time" (ABC, 2011-) and co-starring on "Designated Survivor," as the youngest daughter of Kiefer Sutherland's American president. During this period, she also found time to lend her voice to "The Angry Birds Movie" (2016) and appear in "Independence Day: Resurgence" (2016). Her feature film career took off in earnest the following year, with a co-starring role opposite Chris Evans in "Gifted," and supporting turns in "How to Be a Latin Lover" (2017), a comedy vehicle for Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez, and "Amityville: The Awakening" (2017).
