Jade-Lianna Peters


"I remember the first time I ever had Welch's grape juice. I think I was five. Now I drink it nice and slow - that way I never miss the taste. Mmmmm grapey."

That was, apparently, child commercial "star" Jade-Lianna Peters. She is now the voice-acting star of Nick Jr.'s "Ni Hao, Kai-lan". I couldn't find any actual pictures of her on the Interwebz or, shockingly, even the original video on google or YouTube. So I am stuck with simply posting this small picture of the cartoon character she voice-acts in "Ni Hao, Kai-lan" and a video spoof by an Asian child comedian of Welch's white grape juice ads (entitled, "Wongs White Rice Milk").

It's BJ. He must be rich from the royalties, but he was probably an exploited child actor so he doesn't even know how rich and famous he really is...

How ironic since he is now a frequent and frequently-unsuccessful chaser of money...

Yes, he owes me $300 since September.

Why does that not surprise me...

I know Jade-Lianna personally. She goes to my school - Milwaukee School of Languages. She's really sweet, and really smart too. She's supposed to be in seventh grade, but she has almost all eigth grade classes, some with me.
