MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - 13-year-old Kaydence Patton of Meridian will make her acting debut Tuesday night on ABC's The Rookie, which airs at 9 p.m. on WTOK-TV.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation made Kaydence's wish to be an actress come true. She has hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
Make-A-Wish says Kaydence got the Hollywood treatment for two days in September as the episode was filmed and that she earned the praise of an assistant director who urged her to continue to pursue an acting career.
Make-A-Wish Mississippi is hosting a viewing party for Kaydence at The MAX Tuesday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
