This should come as no surprise considering it’s been literal years since these shows were on the air. But still, seeing how much they’ve all changed over the years will probably make fans feel very, very old.
Especially when it comes to the stars who played little kids and babies on the shows. Take Mia Talerico, for example. She was only a baby when starred as Charlie in Good Luck Charlie, and when she turned 11 years old in September 2019, everyone was pretty shook.
What about Francesca Capaldi? The actress was only 10 years old when the first season of Dog With a Blog premiered, and now she’s a teenager! Seriously, prepare to be surprised over how much they’ve grown.
“It’s just sort of tied closer to who I am now and who I’ve become over the last year,” she told Entertainment Tonight in July 2021.
Sierra hoped that her fans would enjoy her transition into projects that reflected who she was becoming. “It’s been enough time that they’re definitely old enough to watch American Horror Stories now,” she added. “So I hope that they can appreciate that they get to see me in a different light.”
The Supernatural alum also explained why horror projects were so appealing to her after her Disney days.
“Horror as a genre is really pushing past a major boundary and elevating itself. It’s also making way for more different kinds of perspectives,” she noted at the time. “People are just really excited to see a version of themselves represented. Horror hasn’t always had the best reputation for people of color, LGBTQ people, women at large. And I think the fact that it’s moving almost in the opposite direction, [and becoming] a space for those kinds of voices is great. I’m just really happy to be a part of it.”
