It can be tough being a child actress in a mostly adult cast, except when you are an enterprising actress trying to sell Girl Scout cookies at a major event. Last night, This Is Us’ Mackenzie Hancsicsak attended the SAG Awards with a slew of her NBC castmates and brought some of her own Girl Scout cookies, you know, just in case anyone was hungry. You can take a look at her cute post below.
In the image, Mackenzie Hancsicsak is hanging out with her co-star Parker Bates at the SAG Awards. She’s looking lovely in a blue gown, but she’s also using the moment to be a little entrepreneur, tweeting out that she is at Table 34, you know, in case some other celebrities with a sweet tooth get a Girl Scout cookie craving.
It wasn’t the first time Mackenzie Hancicsak posted about Girls Scouts cookies during the event. She also mentioned her Girl Scout cookie sales in another Twitter post related to the SAG Awards, noting,
I’ll be the one in a blue dress w/ Girl Scouts thin mint cookies in my purse.
The Girl Scouts org. showed support for Mackenzie Hancsicsak’s saleswoman skills by retweeting her post. Unfortunately, the This Is Us actress, who plays the younger version of Kate on the show, did not reveal if she made mad sales at the SAG Awards.
On the bright side, we do know she took home a statue, thanks to This Is Us winning Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Drama Series for the second year in a row. Sterling K. Brown also took home a separate award for Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Drama Series.
The other big winner at the SAG Awards in TV was The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. That show also made headlines for other reasons this weekend, but not for Girl Scout cookies. Instead, the cast is renegotiating contracts heading into Season 3.
If This Is Us continues its trajectory at awards shows, 11-year-old Mackenzie Hancsicsak might be able to pull this Girl Scout cookie sales trick for years to come. She joins the likes of Jennifer Garner and her kids as famous people who also sell Girl Scouts cookies.
For now, Mackenzie Hancsicsak also offered to bring cookies if Ellen DeGeneres invites her on her daytime show, so we’ll have to wait and see if Ellen bites on that offer. In the meantime, you can catch new episodes of This Is Us when the show returns on Tuesday, February 5 at 9 p.m. ET. Miss Hancsicsak splits time onscreen with the adult Kate, played by Chrissy Metz and the teenaged Kate, played by Hannah Zeile.
