In the 1999 film Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, 13-year-old Zenon and her pals, living on a space station and on Earth in 2049, mostly looked and sounded like teens from 1999, but with space-age style and futuristic technology. So what happened to the Zenon cast members when they really did move into the 21st century? As with other Disney Channel alumni, some of the mostly child actors went on to successful or not-so-successful TV or film careers, including Zenon herself, Kirsten Storms; others left the business altogether.

Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, a Disney Channel Original Movie, was initially meant to serve as a pilot for a potential future television show. Disney instead released it directly to TV as a feature-length movie. Some fans might be unaware that two sequels were made. Both Zenon: The Zequel and Zenon: Z3 featured many of the same characters and cast members.

The Zenon cast members' careers then and now suggest that a Disney Channel role can be a gateway to future acting and directing jobs. Or in one Zenon actor's case, a career as a psychotherapist.
