If you’ve ever wondered if McKenna Grace and Kiernan Shipka are related, you’re not alone. We here at J-14 could not help but notice that the two stars are spitting images of each other. No really, McKenna could literally pass as Kiernan’s little sis, and that’s precisely why we seriously believe McKenna is destined to play the young version of Sabrina Spellman in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Now, who’s with us?!
Turns out, we’re not the only ones who think so. “Kiernan Shipka actually is McKenna Grace from the future,” someone pointed out on Twitter – while another tweet read, “Every time i see Kiernan Shipka i think it’s McKenna Grace.”
McKenna and Kiernan finally met in real life at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards – and they took a photo together to prove that, no, they aren’t the same person! “Finally,” McKenna wrote alongside the stars’ pic on Twitter. “No, we are not the same person…here is proof.”

Aside from the 12-year-old being a total megastar, she’s also more than qualified to play Sabrina considering the fact that she absolutely adores animals. You see, Kiernan is actually allergic to Salem the Cat – which has caused some slight issues on set.
“If you look in the first two episodes, there are like two scenes, ’cause we show them simultaneously, where I’m totally acting on Benadryl. Maybe only I know that, but it was a mistake to take it. But my face hurt so much,” the 18-year-old star shared on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
They could bring on the Salem scenes with McKenna though. One look at her Instagram, and you’ll see she’s most definitely an animal person – she’s even a spokesperson for PETA Kids.
