Auli’i Cravalho (/ˈlʔi krəˈvælj/ ow-LEE-ee krə-VAL-yoh;[2][3] born November 22, 2000)[1] is an American actress and singer. She made her acting debut as the title character in the 2016 film Moana.[4][5][6][7]

Early life[edit]

Cravalho was born in Kohala, Hawaii.[1] She is of Chinese, Irish, Native Hawaiian, Portuguese, and Puerto Rican descent.[8][9] At the time she made her breakthrough, she was living in Mililani, Hawaii with her mother, and was in her freshman year of high school at Kamehameha SchoolsKapālama campus.[10]


Cravalho has stated that she was initially not going to audition for Moana because “there were already so many great submissions over YouTube“.[11] However, an Oahu talent agent discovered her at a charity competition and encouraged her to audition for the role.[9][11] The Walt Disney Company has stated that Cravalho was the last person to audition out of hundreds of actresses.[9][12] In February 2017, it was announced that she had been cast in the pilot for the NBC drama Rise, which was ordered to series on May 4, 2017.[13][14]
