Sabrina Carpenter is a Pennsylvania native, and the youngest of three sisters. Most recently, she shot the pilot episode of Girl Meets World for Disney playing Maya opposite Danielle Fishel, Ben Savage, and Rowan Blanchard.
Sabrina started her journey at the age of two by following in her sister’s footsteps as a beginning ballerina. It didn’t take long before Sabrina was filling her bedroom with trophies in multiple forms of dance. As her passion and skill in dancing flourished Sabrina surprised her family and friends after discovering her unique vocal talents. At the age of seven, Sabrina began to sharpen her natural abilities with professional vocal lessons in the US and abroad; and at nine, she entered a national singing contest hosted by Miley Cyrus in which she placed 3rd out of 10,000 entries. After the contest Sabrina was interviewed on television and she ended the interview by saying “I hope someday to have my own show, and that little girls will be playing my music at their parties and sleepovers.” The “my own show” part of her goal has just been realized and her musical goal is now closer than Sabrina may even realize.
Sabrina’s budding acting career started in theater and it wasn’t until she was introduced to her current managers Bill Perlman and Darci Price (Perlman Management Group/PMG) in 2010 that her acting took a turn from the stage to television. After several auditions, Sabrina landed her first acting role- a Guest Star on Law & Order SVU. In less than a year’s time Sabrina’s acting career has vaulted to another stratosphere when she booked a series regular role on a Disney Channel pilot Napoleon Dynamite! with Jon Heder.
Sabrina has established herself as a true triple threat. Her vocal talents certainly have not gone unnoticed. Her own YouTube channel showcasing her music already has over 11 million views. She was excited to be flown to China to sing in China’s largest television New Year’s Eve Special broadcast to over 200,000,000 viewers. Sabrina has a music deal with Hollywood Records, and is currently in the studio.
On days off, Sabrina loves to spend time with her family and friends, just being a kid. She also wants a designer puppy “really bad!” Child Fund International and the Children’s Autism Hope Project are charities Sabrina supports and that are close to her heart.
