There are so many stars that have appeared in Disney Channel Original Movies over the years — but what happened to some of the network’s biggest leading ladies? Us has the full rundown about what your favorite teen idols are up to now.
From Halloweentown’s Kimberly J. Brown and Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century’s Kirsten Storms to Brink!’s Christina Vidal and Cadet Kelly’s Hilary Duff, the Disney Channel has championed female-driven stories for generations — and picked the ideal actresses to tell the tales.
Clara Bryant, who starred in the first DCOM, 1997’s Under Wraps, joked that her role in the movie transformed her life in more ways than one. (There have since been more than 100 DCOMs made.)
“The truth, probably my biggest memory from it was Mario [Yedidia], the boy who played Marshall, teaching me how to French [kiss],” she told iHollywoodTV in October 2021. “We had a little fling on set.”
While some stars have continued to make a splash in Hollywood, like The Cheetah Girls’ Raven- Symoné, other actors like the women who played twins in Double Teamed — stars Alana Austin and Poppi Monroe — have taken a path outside the limelight.
