A triple threat while still in her teens, Bella Thorne is making her mark in TV and film, the music industry and the book-publishing market. Born Annabella Avery Thorne in 1997, Bella was born in Florida but moved to California with her acting family soon after. She was a child model before appearing in a variety of television shows and movies, but her breakthrough role was in the short-lived TV series ‘My Own Worst Enemy.’ In 2010, she was cast as dancer CeCe Jones on the Disney Channel sitcom ‘Shake It Up.’ She appeared alongside Zendaya in the series for three seasons. Her co-star joined Thorne on her first single, ‘Watch Me,’ in 2011. Bella signed to Hollywood Records in early 2013. Both her first novel, ‘Autumn Falls,’ and her debut album are due in 2014.
