Mackenzie Couch is an incredibly talented performer and actor and incredibly talented student.
Which is she better at? Given how dedicated she is at both, it would be impossible to tell.
Mackenzie Couch is an acting and performing talent from California by way of Michigan who has risen high in the Hollywood ranks while putting her education first. She’s been on some of TV’s most popular shows on its most popular networks like ABC and HBO, with hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
Mackenzie is the prime definition of young Hollywood in that she has risen high in the most competitive industry in the world, entertainment, while focusing her education and attending school full-time.
Not only have Mackenzie and her family maintained a priority for education she’s excelled on TV shows such as Modern Family and Fresh Off the Boat.
“Filming both of those shows was an amazing experience. Modern Family was such a funny scene that it took awhile to get and Fresh Off The Boat was so good that I was just invited back for another episode.”
With hundreds of thousands of followers on social media (her Instagram page alone boasts over 200,000 active followers), the pressure of Hollywood fame could easily confuse and crush the spirits of someone like Mackenzie.
But it hasn’t, and she has remained poised and well-supported, and is thoughtful and well-adjusted for someone her age.
In an interview with Close-Up Culture, Mackenzie explains,
Q: You’ve appeared on ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Fresh Off The Boat’. Do you have any fun memories from your time on these big TV sets?
A: Yes, so many! Fresh Off The Boat you can actually see me in the same scene twice! That’s some crazy editing, haha.
Modern Family was a big scene with Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. It took awhile to film because they laugh a lot on set and we were actually all just having so much fun I don’t think we wanted it to be over.
Her mother, Christie, explains,
“We moved to LA when Mackenzie was just 10 years old. She signed with an agency right away. Since then she has danced in music videos for Nia Sioux and has appeared in 2 episodes of Fresh Off The Boat, has also appeared on Modern Family, Our People, and the HBO series, Insecure. She was SAG-eligible at the young age of 12 years old. Mackenzie attends the very prestigious Orange County School Of The Arts full-time in the commercial dance conservatory. Mackenzie and her sisters just appeared on the cover of The Teen Magazine and have another cover coming out in December.”
Mackenzie and her parents have made sure that no matter how high her career opportunities go, education will stay first.
If you do it right, you can do it all.
