The star of the Emmy-nom­i­nated Net­flix se­ries “Alexa & Katie” has won ku­dos for her comedic but nu­anced por­trayal of Alexa, a teenager di­ag­nosed with can­cer. “This [past] sea­son we fo­cused more on high school is­sues teenagers go through in real life, and I feel like the au­di­ence will be able to re­late to all of the char­ac­ters,” she says. Pre­vi­ously a sta­ple of the Dis­ney Chan­nel, she was cast as Dis­ney XD’S first fe­male su­per­hero, Sky­lar Storm, in the hit se­ries “Mighty Med,” reprised the role in the spinoff “Lab Rats: Elite Force” and also starred in the Dis­ney com­edy “In­vis­i­ble Sis­ter.” Sea­son two of hit “Alexa & Katie” has been green­lighted by Net­flix.
