9 Teen TV Stars You Forgot Appeared in a Disney Channel Original Movie
Your favorite TV stars all had to start somewhere. Some TV actors started on one network and then became more well known for their work on a completely different network, like the Freeform (ABC Family) actors who began on Disney Channel. Other celebs were movie actors before taking the plunge into TV acting. Some of the all-time greatest teen television stars, however, were actually in Disney Channel Original Movies first.
Seriously, many of your favorite teen TV celebs were actually in a DCOM back in the day. A few of them you might remember, like when the star of The Fosters, Maia Mitchell, played McKenzie in Teen Beach Movie, but there are some that you won’t believe! To see which now-famous teen TV stars were part of an epic DCOM, scroll through the list below:
Sasha has become a household name after appearing as Alison DeLaurentis on Pretty Little Liars for the past six seasons. Sure, everyone knows who she is now and understands that she can play a really twisted yet lovable character (come on, you sort of love Alison), but before she was on ABC Family/Freeform, she actually starred in a DCOM.
The now-20-year-old star played Amy Loubalu, the eco-friendly girl, in Geek Charming back in 2011.
