Saturday night was an exciting night for Jade and the cast of School of Rock. They got to attend the Creative Arts Emmy Awards where they were nominated for Outstanding Children’s Program! Jade got to get all dressed up and walk the red carpet and then watch the show with her cast. Unfortunately, they didn’t win, but they all had a great time regardless. I’ve added some photos of Jade rocking the red carpet to the gallery. Check those out below!
Last week, Jade did a photoshoot with Samantha Annis and we have six STUNNING photos from the shoot. I’ve added them all to the gallery, so be sure to check them out now!
Last night, Jade attended TigerBeat’s pre Teen Choice Awards party. I’ve added four photos of Jade on the carpet to the gallery along with a photo of Jade with Ricardo and Lance that Jade shared on Instagram. I’ll add more photos as they appear.
Moving on! Last night, Jade and her fellow SOR castmates attended the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards. As per usual, Jade looked amazing. I’ve added 11 photos to the gallery and will add more if they appear.
According to Jade’s IMDb page, she booked a new project. The film is called Rufus-2 and is currently in pre-production and is set to be released next February! The film also stars fellow Nick stars Jace Norman and Haley Tju. As of now, we don’t have any other information on the film but I will update everyone once more information is released.

At 15-years-old your family must be so proud of your already young fame. How did you get started in entertainment?
Thank you! And yes, my parents are very supportive. I’ve been acting for about eight years now, and it started off with me wanting to have some fun, and the more I did it, the more I fell in love with the art form.
What’s the best thing about being an actress? Who is your favorite actress or actor?
My absolute favorite thing about being an actress is creating characters and telling stories that in some way make an impact. I love going to the movies and watching actors and actresses like Brie Larson or Leonardo DiCaprio, and leaving the movies feeling something…you know what I mean?
Who do you admire and get inspired by?
Emma Stone and Brie Larson are two women I admire so much! They are beautiful artists, but I think I get inspired most by people in general. So, human beings inspire me!
Last night, Jade along with with her Girl Flu cast mates premiered the film at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival! I’ve added 14 photos from the evening and will add anymore that pop up along with an video that gets uploaded. Huge congrats to the entire cast and crew!
For Jade Pettyjohn, this has become a dream come true. Taking the helm for her character Summer, played by Miranda Cosgrove in the original film, School of Rock has meant so much to her and she looks back on every aspect of the process so far with such fondness and joy.
“I did about five to seven auditions,” Jade admits as she remembers the process to landing the role of Summer. Although some actors look back on this time with pure exhaustion, the excitement is true for her through every step. “It was crazy but it was actually a really good, fun process! You get to meet all the actors who are going up against everyone so we’re all doing chemistry reads with each other.”
In fact, Jade recalls meeting more than just the other actors. “We get to see all of the Nickelodeon and Paramount executives and directors who are going to work with us,” says Jade, grateful for the opportunity to speak with so many people involved with the series. “It was crazy. It was a long process for sure but in the end, it worked out.”
Earlier tonight, Jade attended the City Year Los Angeles Spring Break Event in Los Angeles hosted by Octavia Spencer! I’ve added four photos of Jade from the event to the gallery. Unfortunately, two of them are tagged, but hopefully more images will pop up soon! Also, who caught the new episode of School of Rock tonight? Let me know what you thought on Twitter!
