Variety - - Young Hollywood -

AC­TOR-SINGER Ac­tor-singer Car­pen­ter re­cently re­leased a new sin­gle, “Al­most Love,” that sounds like it’s about that point where a crush deep­ens — but in her mind, the “al­most” is re­ally a metaphor for the gen­eral on-the-cusp­ness that comes with just be­ing 19: “Th­ese are the years where ev­ery­thing feels like Christ­mas be­cause we’re con­stantly just un­wrap­ping new emo­tions.” On­screen, she’s grad­u­at­ing from the cheer­ful lead in Dis­ney Chan­nel fare like “Girl Meets World” to roles in more ma­ture films like Oc­to­ber’s Black Lives Mat­ter-themed “The Hate U Give” (play­ing “a char­ac­ter no one’s re­ally gonna like”). Both that film and her forth­com­ing al­bum, “Sin­gu­lar,” re­flect a be­lief that Gen­er­a­tion Z “is open-minded, asks ques­tions, re­jects ig­no­rance and does speak up when some­thing doesn’t feel right.”
