Laurie Hernandez is trading the balance beam for the big screen!

In a revealing new interview with Team USA, the Olympic gold medalist opened up about her love for acting. She’s got her heart set on Disney!

“I just finished an audition tape for Disney, and I’m waiting to hear,” she gushed. “I think absolutely I would love to be an actress.”

Laurie wants to major in theatre when she gets to college, adding, “I have butterflies just thinking about it, but I think it would be a lot of fun. It would definitely be a lot of work, but it would be worth it.”

She’s a natural in front of the camera — remember when she took home the Mirror Ball trophy on ‘Dancing With the Stars?!
