Disney was a big part of the lives of a lot of children growing up. Shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, High School Musical, Suite Life of Zack and Cody are part of many individuals’ memories. It was most likely an integral part of the day’s routine at one point.
Although people grow out of watching the Disney Channel, the curiosity of knowing what those actors are now doing remains. The following is a list of 15 of the most prominent Disney actors, comparing their careers from then and now.
Most people remember Selena Gomez in the Disney world for playing the character Alex Russo in the hit show Wizards of Waverly Place. She also appeared on Princess Protection Program with Demi Lovato. Once Gomez felt she was ready to break away from the Disney world, she decided to focus more on the world of music and movies. This is generally considered a popular route for Disney alums. The Disney star has since appeared in movies like Spring Breakers with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron and has had a successful music career.
Disney’s success stories do not get much better than Zac Efron’s. Ever since his breakthrough role in High School Musical, the actor has shown his diverse acting range. He has since appeared in movies like Spring Breakers with Seth Rogen and fellow Disney alum Selena Gomez. He also appeared in Dirty Grandpa with legendary actor Robert De Niro. Furthermore, he has shown his acting range by portraying serial killer Ted Bundy in the movie “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile”.
It is easy to recognize the Sprouse twins from Disney’s Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Suite Life on Deck. However, it is easy to miss the fact that they also appeared in Adam Sandler’s 1999 comedy “Big Daddy”. Cole Sprouse also appeared on the iconic TV comedy “Friends” as Ross’s son Ben. The famous duo took a break from the screen after Disney to go to college at NYU. The pair graduated in 2015 and have since made their return to television.
