China Anne McClain

A native of Atlanta, GA 10-year old China Anne McClain discovered her love of acting while memorizing the lines of her favorite movies and acting them out with her siblings, adding their own new twist. Her passion for pretending and singing eventually captured the attention of director Rob Hardy (The Gospel), producer Will Packer (Stomp the Yard, This Christmas) and writer-director-actor Tyler Perry. In 2007, China Anne co-starred in the movie Tyler Perry’s Daddy’s Little Girls, with her real life sisters Sierra & Lauryn McClain, as well as actors Idris Elba (The Reaping, American Gangster) and Gabriel Union (Bad Boys II, Bring it On). Recently, little China Anne played opposite Oscar Award winning actor Forest Whitaker in the film Hurricane Season, as his only child Alana. This compelling drama affirms the resilience of the human spirit based on true events surrounding Hurricane Katrina.

Presently, China Anne and her sisters have formed a singing group called 3mcclaingirls. You can checkout their new music at the Myspace music page, Also, visit their Youtube page at
