Nicolette Pierini (; born December 30, 2003) is an American child actress and performer. She was first noticed for her role in The Magic of Belle Isle (2012), opposite Morgan Freeman, and is known for the 2014 film adaptation of the musical Annie, where she played Mia Putnam.
Pierini was born in Long Island, New York, as the youngest of four children. She was inspired to become an actress after helping her sister Marisa to prepare for school plays. Together she and her brother Anthony would help by performing the other characters in play scripts, and by playing improvisational games with her. At the age of four, Pierini appeared in an episode of the IFC comedy Z Rock as Nicolette. She began taking improvisation, singing and dancing lessons from seven years of age.
Pierini began working an actress in short independent films and commercials. In 2012 she was featured her first roles in major productions, including a recurring role on the drama Made in Jersey and as different characters in the hidden camera show Primetime: What Would You Do?. In the same year, Pierini worked alongside Morgan Freeman in the film The Magic of Belle Isle, where she played Flora. In 2013, Pierini was featured in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Golden Boy and Blue Bloods, as well as the Joey Dedio film Tio Papi.
In September 2013, Pierini was announced as a castmember for the 2014 adaptation of the musical Annie opposite Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis and Cameron Diaz. Pierini landed the role after she completed five rounds of auditions. On the film's soundtrack, Pierini sung two songs, "Maybe" and "It's the Hard Knock Life". While promoting Annie, Pierini performed with the cast at the 2014 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and appeared with the cast at the 2014 Kids' Choice Awards.
Pierini’s brother Anthony is a Broadway actor, appearing as an alternate in the productions of Mary Poppins from 2012-13, the 25th anniversary U.S. national tour Les Misérables from 2011-12 and Big Fish in 2013.
