Actress Laura Marano of ‘Austin and Ally’ on the Disney channel got a jump start on the competition when she was only five years old. It was a move that the star said helped her get ahead in the entertainment industry.
“I am so lucky that I started early because this is something I really enjoy doing,” said Marano. “If I were to start now it would be much harder for me to break into the industry. It’s a really competitive, tough business.”
Marano is expanding her resume to include a new movie role. She plays a prom queen nominee in ‘Bad Hair Day.’
“Everything goes wrong. Nothing goes as planned. It’s one wild ride,” said Marano.
Fans can catch her in ‘Bad Hair Day’ on Friday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m.
