Mikayla, at the time 12 years old, talks about her time working on her first movie,“It was amazing, everyday on set was surreal.” It was not surprising that Mikayla received the role, as she is immensely talented. Mikayla has played the violin for three years, acted from a young age, and did a portion of her gymnastic stunts in the film. However, Mikayla, humble as ever, says that she was, “amazed that I even got the part.”
In order to prepare for her role, Mikayla trained for 2 weeks, watched videos of Douglas’ gymnastic performances, and read Douglas’ books to act as similar to Douglas as possible. You can expect Mikayla in future films, as she wants to continue acting because it is her “passion.”

Yes, Ariel was named after the mermaid. And, no that is not her favorite princess (it’s Mulan, but Ariel is a close second). Other than liking most things Disney, Ariel also likes reading Young Adult novels (despite being way above the recommended reading age), eating the non-smelly type of papaya, Oxford Commas, and watching bad movies on Netflix with her friends. She is currently going into her third year of university as a Communication Studies major. Find her on LinkedIn @arielnwei | View My Blogs
