Maddie Ziegler is known as the star of the Lifetime reality television series "Dance Mom" but the young dancer and child actress recent performance in Sia's music video "Chandelier" has fans and entertainment observers looking at her as a potential television and movie actress.
Her appearance in the music video has been widely acknowledged throughout the entertainment industry as one that was fantastic and made the video an international hit. It received a nomination as the MTV Video of the Year and talk show hosts such as Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel have brought her to their shows as the talk within the industry is that she might be the next child star to follow in the paths of Chloe Moretz as an actress.
The young dancer has been acting since she was 9 years old as she has played the role of a young Deb on the Lifetime series "Drop Dead Diva" but her scintillating performance in the "Chandelier" music video has some entertainment observers predicting that her time on "Dance Moms" will soon be coming to an end.
One of the things that became apparent in the music video is that she is already a very talented actress as well as a dancer. Interestingly, while some fans and entertainment observers compare her to Chloe Moretz an even more intriguing comparison might be to Academy Award winner Natalie Portman.
In the video the argument could be made that she showed a dramatic range that is far beyond the norm for a child actress and with her huge popularity as a result of the video and her lead role on the television show "Dance Moms" now would be the ideal time to start accepting movie roles while she is so popular.
Get ready for Maddie Ziegler's move from television to movies because with her sensational performance in "Chandelier" it seems as if it is no longer a question of if she will be making the move, only when will be the announcement that she is going to be making her movie debut.
