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.
Sofia is not the only celeb who got their big breaks on the network. Stars like Peyton Meyer, G. Hannelius, Ross Lynch, Francesca Capaldi and more made their acting debut on Disney too.
