Her latest project is Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, where she portrays Jazmine Payne — but that’s not all China Anne Mcclain is working on.

China Anne McClain’s Early Life and Career

China Anne McClain was born in 1998 to a music producer father and a screenwriter mother. China Anne also has two older sisters and a brother.

Her first introduction to the public eye was a girl group with her two sisters called “McClain Sisters.” China Anne continued to sing as her acting career started to blow up, but even as she started to act in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and Disney’s A.N.T. Farm, China Anne continued to sing with her sisters.

The group even got a record deal.

“Joining the cast of Descendants was surreal for me. It was an honor because everyone loved the first film and I was a fan of the first film,” she told ButFirstJoy. “I thought it was beautifully put together. And Kenny Ortega is just great. I really wanted to work on it so when I got the call saying I got the role, I said, ‘Yes!’”

She continued, “It's cool to play a villain. This is my very first time playing one, I think. We all have those feelings inside that we just want to unleash on people sometimes, and that’s the definition of Uma’s character. She has always bottled up feelings that she randomly unleashes on people and is not sorry for it at all.”

We can also expect to see China Anne return for Season 13 of House of Payne, if and when, it’s renewed.

What’s Next for China Anne?

Along with acting, China Anne is also working on new music. She makes music with her sister group, now called “Thrii”, as well as her own solo work. China Anne has always loved music, so her acting will never get in the way of her solo career and her work with “Thrii.”
