If you grew up in the '90s, you probably devoured Disney Channel original movies. You may have thought most (if not all) were classics, but in reality, Disney Channel original movie stars have gone on to varying degrees of success since the release of their films. What happened to DCOM stars? Some went on to big screen careers, like Shia LaBeouf and Zac Efron. Others faded away, and seemingly haven't appeared in anything since their time at the House of Mouse.
You're probably already familiar with the current careers of onetime Disney stars like LaBeouf, Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and Raven-Symoné. They've successfully moved past the point where they can be considered simply DCOM actors. Instead, it's time to delve into the lives and careers of lesser-known actors and supporting stars.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the Cheetah Girls, or Christy Carlson Romano, or the stars of Brink! and Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and The Luck of the Irish? Where are the other actors in High School Musical now? The answers might surprise you.
