Parrish, now 18, plays Jade in the live action feature based on the popular line of hip fashion dolls.
"Filming was done all over Los Angeles in February," said Parrish, a former Honolulu resident who relocated to Burbank at age 14 to pursue a career in films. "The dolls were the inspiration, but we are playing four real teen-aged girls."
Her co-stars are Skyler Shaye (Cloe), Malese Jow (Quinn) and Nathalia Ramos (Sasha). "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul also appears in the movie.
In the mid-1990s, Parrish portrayed Cosette in Honolulu, and later on Broadway.
