She then voiced Lilo in Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch. She later starred in Charlotte’s Web and The Secret Life of Bees. She also starred as Allie Keys in the miniseries Taken.

Apart from a healthy diet plan, the actress spends time to workout to improve her overall wellness. Coming from a family of athletes, staying active isn’t something that’s unnatural for her. “I like the high of feeling strong,” said the actress.
“I try to work out six days a week. I love to do Cardio Barre, a ballet-inspired cardio class. I’ve been taking it since I was in high school, and I’m obsessed. I also started doing AKT [a dance-based cardio and strength workout].”
