Nory Boxwood Horace: Upside-Down Magic

Izabela Rose stars as Nory, an optimistic and enthusiastic 13-year-old excited to perfect her ability as a Fluxer, someone who can transform into animals, in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Upside-Down Magic,” based on the best-selling book series. Nory’s propensity to turning into a “Dritten”—a half-kitten, half-dragon—lands her in the class for students with upside-down magic (UDM). However, she refuses to give up on her talent and believes that her magic and that of her UDM friends are just as valuable as the other Sage Academy students.

Originally hailing from Flowery Branch, Georgia, the African American, Salvadoran and Italian actress discovered her love of performing at an early age when she began modeling and competing in pageants all over the Southeast. It wasn’t long before Rose realized her future was in entertainment, and by 2016 she had booked her first commercial for ABC Family. Soon after, she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her twin passions of acting and singing.

In addition to her lead role in “Upside-Down Magic,” Steven Spielberg personally selected her for the role of Olivia in Apple TV+’s reimagining of the classic anthology series “Amazing Stories.”

When she is not in front of the camera or honing her craft, Rose enjoys playing video games, guitar and learning to speak Spanish (her father and grandmother are both fluent). She also plans to spend her time volunteering with the Atlanta Mission and other charities dedicated to helping the homeless, a cause close to her heart.
