On Season 6 of The Goldbergs, Adam’s (Sean Giambrone) girlfriend Jackie is back in town after spending her summer at NYU. She’s changed so much, it’s almost like she’s a whole different person. Well, that is a new actress playing Jackie, who was previously portrayed by Rowan Blanchard. (Blanchard appeared last on the May 9 episode, Spaceballs.) Cool new punk rock Jackie with the blue streaked hair and makeup is portrayed by Alexis G. Zall.
The 20-year-old Zall is known for her roles on Zac and Mia (Bec), Guilty Party (Tess), Rad Lands (Tricket), and Embeds (Claire Dobson), among others. Fun fact: Alexis G. Zall is the voice of Lois Lane on the animated TV series DC Super Hero Girls.
Since taping her last Goldbergs episode, Blanchard has taken on two movie projects: she was Veronica in Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle in Time with Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon. Blanchard will appear next on the big screen in the 2019 adventure film A World Away, which is written and directed by her father Mark Blanchard. The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8pm on ABC, right before American Housewife.
