12-Year-Old ‘Annie Live’ Star Celina Smith Could Be Next Big Thing

The reviews are in for “Annie Live” on NBC. Twelve-year-old newcomer Celina Smith is receiving rave reviews for her “fantastic” portrayal of Annie, as Vulture put it. Viewers also love Taraji P. Henson as the villainess, Miss Hannigan. Harry Connick, Jr., who played Daddy Warbucks, got to show off his piano chops, but social media erupted over his bald cap. Annie’s pooch Sandy is a real-life rescue dog named Macy, but it’s Celina Smith who’s being called one of the big stars of tomorrow.
