Who is the “Good Luck Charlie” star? Mia Talerico Wiki Bio
Mia Kaitlyn Talerico was born in Santa Barbara, California USA, on 17 September 2008 – her zodiac sign is Virgo and she holds American nationality. She is a child actress, best known for portraying Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Duncan in the “Good Luck Charlie” Disney Channel original series, as well as for appearing in the “So Random!” sitcom.
Early life and education
Mia was raised in Santa Barbara by her parents Chris, a musician, and her mother Claire Talerico who is an actress, and who helped her win her first role when she was only eleven months old (cast to play Charlotte in “Good Luck Charlie”). She stopped acting at the age of four, but after she enrolled at elementary school, she joined the school’s drama club, wanting to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a famous actress.
Mia often goes with her mom while she’s working, and as she is an only child is having the full support of her parents. When she was four years old in January 2013, Mia began receiving death threats on the Instagram account her parents created for her, and this is considered to be the main reason why she stopped appearing in the series.
Career as an actress
Mia has appeared in just two TV series so far, firstly “Good Luck Charlie” in the summer of 2009, while she stopped shooting for the show in June 2013.
The series aired its first episode on 4 April 2010 around one year after the shooting began, and it its last on 16 February 2014. Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen who are the series’ creators had the idea of creating a show for entire families rather than just children, and “Good Luck, Charlie” follows the Duncan family living in Denver, who are getting adjusted to the birth of Charlotte Charlie (Mia) and Toby who is played by Logan Moreau.
The children are their fourth and fifth babies, and each episode ends with one of the family members saying “Good Luck, Charlie”, thus the series’ name.
Mia’s second appearance was in the “Leigh Allyn Baker and Mia/Pia Toscano” episode of the “So Random!” Disney Channel sitcom, which debuted on 5 June 2011 as soon as Demi Lovato left the “Sonny with a Chance” TV series. It follows the story of the same actors who were featured in “Sonny with a Chance”, such as Tiffany Thornton, Brandon Mychal Smith and Allisyn Ashley Arm among others.
On the day of its premiere, around 4.1 million people were watching it but the show kept losing viewers after each episode, and was therefore not renewed for a second season.
Friends and family. Is she dating?
Mia enjoys spending her free time with her parents and her friends and is a highly sociable person who has no problems with finding new friends and meeting people. Phil Baker, the creator of the “Good Luck, Charlie” TV series, often talked to Mia’s mother during the shooting of the series, as he wanted to find out what Mia likes so that he could incorporate those things into the series.
One of her best friends is Daniela Tegan, with whom she has launched the Club Squishy Surprise, a surprise box which they are selling over the internet.
She has many other friends with whom she often uploads pictures onto her Instagram account, and she is also using her accounts on the internet to motivate people to be kinder, and have more acceptance for people who might not fit into what they believe is a right way to live. Mia is still very young to be dating and there have been no rumors nor controversies regarding her ‘love life’.
Hobbies and other interests
Mia enjoys being active on the internet, and is now taking care of the social media accounts which her parents created for her when she was little on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
She is energetic and enjoys being outdoors and playing with other children, while she is a huge fan of Play Dates which is an expression mostly used in the US and means a pre-arranged gathering of children who go on to spend several hours playing together (no romantic matters involved. as people often believe there are, due to its name).
Mia enjoys choosing what to wear by herself – her favorite color is pink. She loves to dance and has been taking ballet lessons since she was four years old. Mia is a huge lover of animals and has a dog whom she named Wookie, while she also has a guinea pig named Nacho.
