Local girl Siena Agudong snags leading role in summer movie 'Alex and Me'

HONOLULU (KHON2) - Born in Hawaii in 2004, Siena Agudong is paving her way in the entertainment industry at just 13 years old.

She has captivated audiences through her performances, both on stage and on screen.

"I actually followed what my sister did. She started out with plays," she said. "I really, really enjoyed acting."

Her first break was in 2014, playing Lulu Parker on the ABC drama "Killer Women."

She has since been a steady guest star on Nickelodeon’s “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn” as well as Tiffany, a recurring role on TVLand’s “Teachers.”

Her passion for acting has earned her several Young Entertainer and Young Artist Award nominations in 2015, 2016, and 2017. In spring 2017, she was awarded Best Guest Starring Young Actress 12 & Under for her work on "Teachers."

Agudong has a starring role in “Star Falls,” which premiered March 31 on Nickelodeon.

In her debut Warner Brothers movie, “Alex and Me,” Agudong appears alongside U.S. soccer starlet Alex Morgan. The movie is set to be released this summer.

"It's so fun. I can't tell you enough. I'm so blessed to do this. I'm so excited," she said. "I couldn't do it without the support of everyone, and it's important for me to be a role model, and I just want to show that hard work pays off and to believe in yourself."

When she isn’t working, Agudong enjoys spending time with her family and dogs at the beach, and playing soccer.
