Austin and Ally premiered on Disney Channel on December 2, 2011. It stars 4 young actors. Lauren Marano plays Ally, a shy song writer who lives with her dad. Together they own and run a music store in Miami. Austin is a confident singer who is played by Ross Lynch. Ally’s best friend is Trish played by Raini Rodriguez. She can’t seem to keep a job for more than a day and has funny uniforms and things happen to her at her many jobs! Austin’s buddy is Dez played by Calum Worthy. He always supports Austin but he isn’t too smart.
So let’s meet each actor:
