According to Deadline, Victoria Grace didn’t realize that she had to be under the age of 18 to be nominated for Outstanding Younger Performer. The publication states that an actor can not be older than 18 on at least January 1, 2022. Victoria is much older than that as she turned 21 back in 2021.

The character Wendy Shin is the younger sister of Li Shin, who works for Dimera Enterprises in Alaska. Victoria recently told Soap Opera Digest that landing a role on Days of Our Lives has certainly changed her life, and especially as an Asian-American actress. She said that this is a huge step towards better and more diverse representation on the small screen. Victoria said, “I read The Hollywood Diversity Report for last year, and out of all of the lead women on TV less than four percent were Asian. That hit close to home.”

So far Victoria has not made any additional comments about the matter. However, there’s a good chance that she might try to submit her work for a Daytime Emmy next year.
