This may come as a major shock, but Sierra McCormick is turning 23 years old on Wednesday, October 28. The actress was only 13 when she starred in A.N.T. Farm, which means it has been more than nine years since the Disney Channel show premiered. Wow, can you believe how fast time has flown by?!
For those who forgot, it also starred China Anne McClain, Jake Short, Stefanie Scott, Aedin Mincks and Carlon Jeffery. It followed a young music prodigy named Chyna Parks, who — along with her friends Olive and Fletcher — had to survive high school, despite the not-so-nice welcome from their fellow students. The first episode hit screens in May 2011, and it went on for three seasons before going off the air in March 2014, and when it concluded it was definitely the end of an era!
But wait, what are the stars of the show doing now, you ask? In honor of McGormick’s birthday, we decided to do some investigating, and it turns out, they’ve all changed so much over the years! Here’s what the cast is up to these days…

She went on to star in How to Build a Better Boy, Bilal: A New Breed of Hero, Sheep & Wolves, the Descendants movies, House of Payne, Blood Brother, Hubie Halloween, Black Lightning and more. She also launched her own YouTube channel, released a few solo songs and formed a band with her siblings called McClain Sisters! You go, girl.
