Ready to have your minds blown, people?! Well, Ross Lynch is turning 25 years old on Tuesday, December 29. The actor was only 17 when he starred in Teen Beach Movie, which means it has been more than seven years since the iconic Disney Channel movie premiered, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by!
For those who forgot, the flick also starred Maia Mitchell, Grace Phipps, Garrett Clayton, John DeLuca, Chrissie Fit, Suzanne Cryer and Barry Bostwick. It was all about a group of surfers who were in for a shock when they were mysteriously transported into a musical. It was definitely a huge part of our childhoods, so the fact that it’s already been almost a decade since it came out is seriously making us feel old!
