Today is a very special day for Sofia Carson. The Disney Channel star is turning 24 years old today, and we are celebrating the best way we know how. You see – while some Disney Channel actors and actresses got their start elsewhere, others had the pleasure of having their very first role be a Disney one. Sofia is one of those lucky stars.
Yep, that's right. The very first television show she appeared on was a one-time appearance on the fan favorite show Austin & Ally. Of course, she then went on to star as a leading lady as Evie in Descendants, Descendants 2 and Adventures in Babysitting. It's just so cool that she's stuck with Disney through and through! That is why we are commemorating the actress' special day by taking a look back at which celebs had their very first acting roles on a Disney Channel show or movie.
