The fall finale for Season 2 of Young Sheldon is here and it’s set to be a fun one. Paige is back to keep Sheldon on his toes and as she continues to gain popularity, many CBS viewers have become curious about the child star.

McKenna Grace plays Paige on the Young Sheldon cast. The role has been a great one for the young actress, challenging the character of Sheldon at every step.

Paige showed up as a new young classmate who challenges Sheldon (played by Iain Armitage) and makes him work harder at school. She might have some wise words for him during the new episode, called A Stunted Childhood and a Can of Fancy Mixed Nuts.

During Season 2 Episode 10, CBS advertises that Sheldon will learn that people with stunted childhoods can turn into social outcasts. This leads to him trying harder to act like a kid.

In a substory for the episode, Meemaw (Annie Potts) and Dr. Sturgis’ (Wallace Shawn) relationship gets tested when she teaches him how to drive.

Actress McKenna Grace may only be 12 years old, but she is putting together a huge list of acting credits. Having her come on as guest star Paige definitely elevates the Young Sheldon cast.
