Talk about Triple Threats - Lalaine is the real deal! An accomplished singer/songwriter, phenomenal dancer, and internationally recognized film and television actress - simply put - Lalaine is a superstar.
Lalaine, a native of Burbank, California, is a vivacious 16 year-old veteran performer. Her first professional job was at the age of 10 in the Broadway Production of “Les Miserables” where she played Little Cosette/Eponine and toured nationally for almost one year.
Lalaine's return to California brought her numerous national commercials and also a starring role in the Tom Petty music video “Walls.” On stage, Lalaine played Annette, the lead character in Opera Pacific's musical production of “Brundibar.” Her vocal skills have also been utilized for films such as “Mrs. Santa Claus,” “Lolita,” and “Geppetto.” Her talent as a singer and dancer landed Lalaine a plum role in the Disney movie “Annie” where she played Kate, the orphan.
Lalaine stars as Miranda on the top rated and internationally known Disney Series “Lizzie McGuire” and can currently be seen daily on the Disney Channel and weekly on ABC Family. Also, Lalaine starred in the original Disney Channel feature film “You Wish!,” which became the highest rated original film in the channel’s history.
Lalaine performed the title song “You Wish” which subsequently began playing on Radio Disney and has been on the station’s Top 30 Countdown for the past 6 months. Lalaine’s songwriting ability was displayed soon thereafter as she co-wrote six tracks on her debut album entitled “Inside Story” with producers Jay Lazaroff and Erik Isaacs. The CD features her singles “You Wish” and “We All Fall Down” which was inspired by her soon to be released independent film “Promised Land” in which she also has a starring role.
