Just a few or a dozen years ago, Disney and Nickelodeon were real factories of teenage stars. Series such as “iCarly” or “Wizards of Waverly Place” attracted thousands of children who constantly asked their parents for new gadgets with their favorite stars. What happened to the stars who started in comedy series for young people?

It’s impossible to start such a list without putting this actress first. Her career has grown to unimaginable proportions, and every day the Internet is flooded with reports from her private life and subsequent premieres.

Zendaya Coleman started her career at a young age – from 2010, she appeared in the Disney series “Dance Rules!”, in which she was partnered by Bella Thorne. The series told the story of the dancing adventures of friends Raquel “Rocky” Blue and Cecilia “CeCe” Jones. As it turned out, this was it just the beginning of a stunning career as an actress and singer.

In 2017, we saw Zendaya as MJ in the movie “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. She played Peter Parker’s girlfriendplayed by Tom Holland, with whom he has been in a relationship for several years.

In 2019, she starred in the HBO series “Euphoria”. The role of the addicted teenager Rue brought fame to the young actress many nominations and awardsand the production itself, even though it touched on controversial topics, was very positively assessed.

Zendaya’s most recent credits include appearing as Chani in two parts of the film adaptation “Dunes”. The last film about Paul Atreides hit theaters on February 29, 2024.

In 2004, she began appearing in Disney Channel productions, but the most groundbreaking and now somewhat iconic role was the character of Alex Russo in the series “Wizards of Waverly Place”.

Selena Gomez is not only an actress and singer, but also a producer. In 2017, she started working on the production of the popular series “13 Reasons Why”, which is available on Netflix.

The latest production in which we can watch Selena Gomez is the series “Crimes in the Neighborhood”, which currently has three seasons, and the next one will debut soon. We can watch the series on Disney+.

Ariana Granda began her career focusing more on music, but there were also acting appearances. Station viewers Nickelodeon they probably remember the cute one Cat Valentine in the series “Victoria means victory” and “Sam & Cat”, in which she appeared until 2014.
