Disney Channel, Instagram
One of our favorite fun trivia tidbits about our favorite Disney Channel shows is the fact about just how many of our most-beloved actors from major series started out as guest-stars on other shows. For example: we were first Disney-introduced to Selena Gomez as Mikayla on one iconic episode of Hannah Montana before she got her own show, Wizards of Waverly Place. Well now, those two fan-favorite series are coming together once again, in a totally new and unexpected way.
Actress Maria Canals-Barrera, who you know played mom Theresa Russo on Wizards, revealed on her Instagram that she's now working with Hannah Montana alum Emily Osment on her show, Young & Hungry! How's that for a fun coincidence?
While on set filming, Maria grabbed a photo with show leads Emily and Aimee Carrero, and it's melting our hearts to see so many different elements of our childhood coming together in one project!
"Fun on set w/the super talented @aimeecarrero & @EmilyOsment @YoungAndHungry!" Maria captioned her photo.
We simply cannot wait to see what Maria's role on the show will be like – and if she manages to sneak in some Hannah Montana/Wizards of Waverly Place references into the performance at all. Can you imagine if she drops the Sub Station a shout-out? But don't mind us over here, dreaming up potential plots for her Young & Hungry debut!
