Special Guest Lauren Taylor
Lauren Taylor, a southern California native, stars in the brand new Disney Channel series “Best Friends Whenever” as the ever-so cheerful dreamer ‘Shelby.’ The series centers on teenagers ‘Shelby’ (Taylor) and ‘Cyd’ (Landry Bender), who when a science experiment goes wrong, become unstuck in time, leaping forward and backward whenever they want—and sometimes even when they don’t. Now with the help of their next-door neighbor, teenage genius Barry (Kamp), the girls must learn to master their awesome new power as they time-shift through high school.
The blonde-haired, blue eyed beauty, whose comedic timing steals the show, is not only a talented actress but also a singer/songwriter who has opened for some of today’s musical legends. Lauren has enjoyed a budding career in music before landing her dream Disney role. She began performing in musical theatre at age eight in school and community productions. She went on to compete in a 12-part chamber a cappella choir in middle school, which led to performances across the country, including Carnegie Hall. At fourteen, she started singing for the San Diego Symphony Summer Pop Concert Series and opened for acclaimed musical artists Michael Bolton, Wilson Phillips, Debbie Gibson and Vanessa Williams.
Lauren, wanting to perform across multiple platforms, turned her attention to acting, booking commercials for Disney Nintendo, Panda Express, Iowa Healthcare and Unity Healthcare. In 2014, Lauren landed the lead in the Disney pilot “Fairest of the Mall.” Next, she landed the role of ‘Harper Rich’ in the Netflix original series “Richie Rich” and completed filming two seasons, the first of which is now available for live streaming.
