Best known as Miranda Sanchez, Lizzie McGuire's best friend on [RoviLink="VW"]The Lizzie McGuire Show, actress/singer/dancer Lalaine is the second star from that series to begin a recording career. She began performing at an early age, and toured the United States in a production of Les Miserables when she was nine years old. After that, Lalaine focused on her acting for a few years: appearances in commercials and the video for Tom Petty's single "Walls" led to a role as one of the orphans in Disney's movie version of the musical Annie. Soon after, she landed the role of Miranda Sanchez, and when she performed a song on an episode of [RoviLink="VW"]Lizzie McGuire, Disney producers soon put her singing and acting talents to use in the Disney Channel film [RoviLink="VW"]You Wish, in which she starred and performed the title track. The soundtrack to another Disney Channel movie, [RoviLink="VW"]Pixel Perfect, featured her second single, "If You Wanna Rock." Lalaine also headlined a Radio Disney tour and appeared on the Disneymania, Vol. 3 collection with a cover of "Cruella De Vil." She moved beyond Disney with appearances on [RoviLink="VW"]Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a role on the Filipino series [RoviLink="VW"]FlipSide, and a record deal with Warner Bros. Lalaine worked on her debut album with producer Rob Cavallo, who has also collaborated with Green Day and Alanis Morissette. ~ Heather PharesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
