Name: Auli'i Cravalho

Hometown: Oahu, Hawaii

Birthday: Nov. 22

Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius

Fun Facts:

1. Her cat is a travel necessity. As for the hilarious reason behind her feline's name Chin Chin, Auli'i told Sweety High, "[It's] because she has a double chin. We feed her a lot, but she's so cute!"

2. Her skills are not limited to acting and voiceovers. "I'm no Picasso or anything, but I do like painting," she said. "I've actually improved on my drawing, too."

3. She's a fellow novel enthusiast and loves to hang out in bookstores. Her favorite books include the Gregor the Overlander series. "I also really liked The Book Thief," she said. "It's a really good book."

4. Her love for carbs rivals our own. "If we could put a blanket over every single carb in the world, including pasta, bread and cereal, that's my favorite food," she admitted.

5. She has several nicknames, including Li'i and Sunshine. She's not really sure how Sunshine got started, but she explains she has "been called Sunshine at school and on different shoots and it kind of just stuck in an interesting way." It's not even hard to see why.

6. Her major fears include spiders and clowns. Like many, she thinks, "at this point, everyone should just be afraid of clowns."

7. She isn't really one for celeb crushes. "In order for me to kind of like someone, I do need to be able to meet them and judge their personality first," she shared. I mean, if we got to work with Dwayne Johnson in any way, we would most definitely be crushing, just saying.????
