Mckenna Grace (born June 25, 2006 in Grapevine, Texas) is an American child/teen actress and musician.

She's probably best known for her role in Marc Webb's Gifted, as well as for playing the young versions of several big-name roles. Despite her young age, she's already amassed a surprisingly strong resume since she began acting at age 6, having worked with the previously mentioned Webb, Steven Spielberg, Craig Gillespie and Roland Emmerich.

She provides examples of:

  • Dye Hard: Regularly changes hair colour/style for her roles and makes a point of announcing this via "transition posts" on her Instagram account.
  • Playing Against Type:
  • Time-Shifted Actor: As her resume indicates above, she tends to be cast as the younger self of a work's major character.
    • In A Friend of the Family, she gained her own "younger self" with Hendrick Yancey as a younger version of ger character.
