Before she was so Raven and rocked out as a Cheetah Girl, 14-year-old Raven-Symoné starred as quirky BFF Nebula in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. Even though she’s all grown up now, we’d hit a Microbe concert with Nebula anytime!
Who knew Fiona Gallagher was once a Disney girl?! In Genius, 13-year-old Rossum played the adorable Claire Addison, love interest to teen genius Charlie Boyle.
An original Disney starlet, 16-year-old Lohan starred as Lexy Gold, high school student-turned-private-eye in Get a Clue. We’re gonna go ahead and rank this as LiLo’s second-best kiddie film, right behind The Parent Trap.
Was there ever a moment this girl wasn’t working? In between filming Remember the Titans and Malcolm in the Middle, 15-year-old Panettiere somehow found time to star in Tiger Cruise as Maddie Dolan.
OK, so even we forgot about this. One of the more serious Disney movies, Tru Confessions, starred 16-year-old LaBeouf as developmentally disabled Eddie. The movie focused on his relationship with twin sis Tru – and we’re pretty convinced his acting was worthy of an Oscar … or at least a Kids’ Choice Award.
Is it just us, or was Belle equally as a gorgeous as a 13-year-old? In Rip Girls, Camilla made waves (see what we did there?) as a young surfer who traveled to Hawaii to rediscover her roots.
If only Marissa Cooper could speak to dolphins too. One of our fave O.C gals, 16-year-old Barton was super-cute as Vicky Austin, who could telepathically communicate with dolphins in A Ring of Endless Light. Bonus: a pre-Gilmore Girls Jared Padalecki also made an appearance.
Long before she was gaining Oscar buzz for her role in Room, Larson was hitting the road for Disney. The Golden Globe nominee starred alongside Beverley Mitchell in Right on Track, in which the two played sisters who take on the world of … junior drag racing.
