What can we glean about the new Contemporary Series character Tenny Grant when we combine the American Girl Instagram photos with all the other hints, clues, and rumors on the internet?
Squee! Have we identified the actress who will be playing Tenny in the American Girl movie? On the left is a doll sized green and blue checked shirt with an "American Girl" vanity tag and on the right is an Instagram photo posted by American Girl from their "on location" film set. Seems like a match to me. This elevates the unnamed actress in the Instagram photo from simply being one of the girls on the set to The Girl on the set, namely, Tenny.
Tenny will have long wavy brown hair and most likely have a light or tan complexion.
Tenny will likely come with pierced ears.
Several Contemporary Series books are set to be published January 31, 2017. I believe they will be Tenny's story. While I would love to think this is also Tenny's debut date, considering the six month delay between Melody's book release and Melody's actual debut, this is not enough information to confirm a launch date for Tenny.
Contemporary Series Novel 1 & 2 are written by Kellen Hertz, who is also the author of Lea Clark's third book, Lea and Camila.
So what other clues can be found in those Instagram photos?
Music! Tenny looks to be a singer or a singer/songwriter. Some of the story will take place in "Music City" (another visual clue from Instagram, but I was unable to capture that image), more commonly known as Nashville, Tennessee.
Note the ruffles and plaid theme in the shirt the musician is wearing, you will see this again.
I find it impossible that Tenny will not have a guitar.
And while it seems American Girl was just teasing us with the photo of the guitar, check out the two posters in the background. The "Jam" session poster certainly seems to point more definitely to a singer/songwriter combination.
But even more interesting is the poster below that features a horse and offers some tantalizing possibilities. Does the text at the bottom of that poster say "The Prancing Pony?" Could Tenny be involved with a dancing horse show, stunt horse acrobatics, or other show horse activities? Will Tenny have a horse or pony as an accessory?
Woodford is definitely a pet possibility! Looks to be a Golden Retriever?
And finally, I think this coffee house photo may be more than one of the film sets--could we see a darling coffee shop/mini bistro set for Tenny's character?
American Girl really gave out a lot of clues from their Instagram photos!
