Heres What Melina From Lizzie Mcguire Looks Like Now
Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire had you shippping couples before you even knew what shipping was. The first match? Lizzie and Gordo , obviously. The second? Lizzie's baby bro Matt and his girlfriend girl friend Melina Bianco, played by Carly Schroeder . She outsmarted every one of his pranks.Disney Channel
Schroeder was only 11 when she started on Disney Channel — her ' awkward adolescent phase ' — so stars Hilary Duff and Lalaine acted as her 'big sisters' on set.
'[They] gave me candy when no one was looking and tolerated my abundance of energy,' Schroeder revealed in a touching #WCW post . 'For years, I rocked hand-me-downs from Hilary and couldn't have been more stoked she made me look fashionable. During a difficult time in my life I had these two gorgeous, intelligent, talented big sisters looking out for me.'https://www.instagram.com/p/2E0-vtAf4P/?taken-by=carlyfries18&hl=en
Today, Schroeder still remains close with the cast, especially Jake Thomas (Matt) and Clayton Snyder (hottie Ethan Craft).
'You know you're a family when you can be your weird self and not fear judgement,' she captioned the pic below. D'aww!https://www.instagram.com/p/1s0TJkgf2g/
After wrapping The Lizzie McGuire Movie in 2003, Schroeder appeared in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit , the Lifetime movie Prayers for Bobby , and the rom-com Slightly Single in L.A. , among other roles.
She also graduated from California Lutheran University!https://www.instagram.com/p/ux-YjxgfxP/?hl=en
I feel the need to introduce you to Jax, an adorable Shiba Inu puppy she adopted last year. Have you ever seen such a photogenic canine?https://www.instagram.com/p/9lhZQtgfxJ/?taken-by=carlyfries18&hl=en
He can even do yoga!https://www.instagram.com/p/-wTSAPAf9J/?taken-by=carlyfries18&hl=en
As for Schroeder, she's into adventuring, animal rights, and veganism. She climbs, runs, surfs, bikes — you get the gist.
According to Outdoor Bella Magazine , her future goals are 'to empower women, protect animals, hike the Pacific Crest Trail, shark dive, and be in a film with Reese Witherspoon .' (Fun fact: Witherspoon's character hikes the same trail in Wild .)https://www.instagram.com/p/2dy-pKBVMf/?taken-by=outdoorbella
