Sister duo Lennon and Maisy Stella were only 13 and 9 years old when their lives changed forever. That’s how old they were when they appeared in their first ever episode of Nashville, a show chronicling the dramatic lives of country singers Rayna Jaymes, Juliette Barnes, and others.
Lennon and Maisy were cast as Rayna’s daughters Maddie and Daphne. The two have grown up before our eyes over the course of the show.
Back in April, the two sisters filmed their final Nashville scene. After seven seasons and two networks, the show is finally ending once this current season wraps up.
In honor of their time on the show, Lennon shared a picture from the day of the Stella sisters’ first shoot.

this picture was from the first scene ever. today we filmed the last scene ever. I don’t know when it’s gunna hit me, and I’m terrified for it to. There’s no way im fully comprehending at this moment what my life will be like without this show, without these people. I am at a loss of words honestly so forgive me if I’m speaking backwards and inside out right now, but from the depths of my being, thank you. thank you to Callie for picking me and Maisy off of our couch in 2012 completely clueless and oblivious to the world you were about to show us. Never would I have considered acting if it wasn’t for this show, I was so dead set on making music I didn’t even think for one second about doing or being anything else, and here I am now with such a passion for acting and this world of TV and movie making. thank you to the entire cast and crew for inspiring me, moving me, every day. how lucky was I to be surrounded by the purest, most solid human beings on the planet from the youngest age. and how lucky i am to have my sister right in it all with me. soaking it all in. thank you guys for making this everything it was, everything it is. how special to have my sister and I’s childhood documented. so glad every awkward stage has been captured for the world to see ;) kidding, but actually not at all… DO NOT go back to season 1 please and if you do, do me a solid and don’t show me pictures. Ahhhhhh what magic this has been. no words could possibly express my gratitude. all the love in the world. Xox
If you haven’t seen Nashville in a while, you were probably shocked to see Lennon and Maisy when they turned up to present at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night (June 6). Now 18 and 14, the two sisters aren’t little girls any more. They’re all grown up!
But just as you got over the shock of seeing how grown up Lennon and Maisy are now, Lennon will have you doing a double take yet again. That’s because just hours after appearing at the CMT Music Awards, she decided to make a drastic change to her appearance.
During her time on Nashville, you’ve only known Lennon for having blond hair. While it used to be more of a dirty blond, she’s opted for a much lighter, almost white hue in recent times. At one point, she even dyed her hair a pinkish color, but that wasn’t a long-lasting change.
Maisy has traditionally sported blond hair as well, but dyed hers darker a little while ago. Following her sister’s lead, Lennon decided to take the plunge and dye her long locks a darker shade than we’ve ever seen on her before.
Just see the change for yourself!
That’s such a big difference from how she looked at the CMT Music Awards mere hours prior!
What do y’all think of Lennon’s new look? Are you a fan of her darker dye job, or do you miss the blond already?
