The 11-year-old Grade 6 student at Ernest Cumberland Elementary School is among five actors nominated for Best Performance in a Children’s or Youth Program or Series.

“I’m extremely excited,” she said. “(Winning an award) is a major goal in life for me but it’s also great to be nominated.”

Madison made her debut on the show when it premiered last March.

The Stanley Dynamic is a family sitcom with an animated twist.

While the family appears to be normal, consisting of a mom and dad, twin sons and a daughter, one of the sons is a cartoon.

Madison plays the youngest child Lori Stanley, a genius who is interested in bugs, science and manipulating her brothers.

Madison has been spending a lot of time on set recently filming episodes for season two.

She said fans of the show should expect to see her continue in her mischievous ways as a prankster.

“It’s just been a lot of fun for me right now,” she said.

Prior to joining the show, she appeared in two Canadian independent thrillers, Berkshire County and Twisted, as well as the short drama Anatomy of a Sunbeam.

In addition to television, the Canadian Screen Awards highlight the best in digital media and film.

The winner of Madison’s category will be announced at gala March 9 in Toronto.
