What Do Your Favourite Disney Stars Look Like Now?

What does London Tipton look like now? The question comes to mind with over a decade passing since the hay day of our favourite classic Disney shows…

To name a few gems, Lizzie McGuire, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana  have gone down in Disney history!

We either want to be them, look like them or date them as the former Disney and Nickelodeon gals that graced our screens have become ultimate goals.

If you’re interested to know what our favourite childhood stars have been up to since their glory days, check out Disney’s Nude Stars and Disney’s Dirty Divas, The Real Life Partners Of Your Favourite Disney Girls and These Are The Disney Girls From The 00’s NOW!

Unsurprisingly, they all stayed in the spotlight, bouncing from film to TV series or becoming superstars (Ariana, you go girl) so we’ve dedicated this to them. Who was your fave?

Christy Carlson Romano (Ren Stevens) – Even Stevens

As the older sibling, Ren was considered to be a bit of a drag but in reality, she had her head screwed on and Louis was the most annoying little brother!

Played by Christy Carlson Romano, Christy went on to voice Trina in the first season of Big Hero 6: The Series.

Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire) – Lizzie McGuire

Lizzie was just a shy, self-conscious teenager which made her extremely relatable to the rest of us at that age…
