On the Young Sheldon episode ‘A Stolen Truck and Going on the Lam’, Sheldon’s (Ian Armitage) sister Missy (Raegan Revord) steals her father’s truck and hits the road with her friend Paige Swanson, who is also a child prodigy and a rival to Sheldon.
Paige is portrayed by Texas native Mckenna Grace. The 16-year-old star is known for her roles as young Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) in the movie I, Tonya, young Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) in Captain America, and as the terrifying ‘bad seed’ Emma in the TV movie The Bad Seed Returns, among others.
When not on a TV or movie set, Grace is learning how to turn heads on the red carpet. As seen above, in a stunning sheer bikini top/corset dress with a hip-high slit, at the Billboard Women in Music awards ceremony. And below in a cutout mini dress at the People’s Choice Awards. The Big Bang Sheldon’s rival makes here is not just a Theory.
Get ready to see more of Grace: she’s promoting her new music video, Buzzkill Baby, see below.
Young Sheldon airs Thursdays at 8 pm ET on CBS, right before Ghosts at 8:30, So Help Me Todd at 9 pm, and CSI: Vegas at 10 pm.
