Quvenzhané Wallis might perhaps be one of the finest definitions of a child prodigy. Lying her way into an audition that was meant for six-year-olds, she proved that sometimes calculated risks can pay off. Little Quvenzhané first auditioned at the tender age of 5, where she competed with over 4000 six-year-olds to bag the lead role in the 2012 drama flick, titled ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’. The makers were amazed at the kind of talent this youngster showcased at the audition, that they slightly edited the storyline to accommodate her strong-willed personality. When was the last time you heard a filmmaker, who’s been in the business for a really long time, tweak his character sketch for a 5-year-old? That’s how you can be sure that we’re dealing with a future superstar here. Wallis is on her way to breaking stereotypes and is soon going to be one of the future game changers.
