Disney Channel’s original series Stuck in the Middle introduced fans to the Diaz family in February 2016, which ran for three seasons after three seasons until its series finale in July 2018.
Starring Ronni Hawk, Joshua Bassett, Jenna Ortega, Isaak Presley, Ariana Greenblatt, Malachi Barton, Kayla Maisonet and Nicolas Bechtel, the show told the story of Harley who often came up with clever and creative ways to stand out as the middle child in her family of seven kids.
During an exclusive interview with J-14 in August 2021, Ariana revealed where her character, the youngest Diaz daughter Daphne, would be now.
“I feel like she would start her own business of, like, dolls,” the actress gushed. “If you watch the show, she completely wrecks her dolls and rips their head off and cuts their hair and spray paints their face and puts Xs on their eyes. So, I don’t know if … she’d probably start an Etsy shop.”
Stuck in the Middle star Jenna looked back on her Disney Channel days during an interview with Cosmopolitan from April 2021. The Scream star spoke candidly about her fellow former cast members.
“The entire cast and I were looking forward to this day, because how could you not?” she said about filming the iconic Disney Channel wand video. “I remember we all would be watching each other and rooting each other on. When one of our friends had their moment we’d go over and hug them and shout.”
Jenna also reflected on her character Harley’s Quinceañera scene and revealed that she practiced for “two months” for the dance routine. “I do miss them a lot,” she said of her fellow Stuck in the Middle stars. “I haven’t seen them since.”
She continued, “I don’t think I reflect on this portion of my life that often, which is crazy considering I thin four years of my life was dedicated to this show … I really miss my cast, that kind of made me sad and I did not think I was going to react that way.”
