Most people saw Alyson Stoner grow up on Disney Channel. She first started off on 'Mike's Super Short Show' and then appeared on 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody', 'That's So Raven' and 'Camp Rock'.

She has steadily risen to fame as an actress, and although we've watched her progress, there is still so much we don't know about the 24-year-old star. So here are five things you may not know.

She is a Super Talented Dancer

Alyson Stoner has been dancing since before any of us can remember. It appears to be her first creative skill in life and is still one of her biggest passions today. However, after quite a few years in the entertainment industry, Alyson decided it was time for a change.

On her website, she says, "After 15 years in entertainment, I reached the formidable transition to adulthood and realized my biggest obstacle wasn't the industry or my competition, but myself. I’d been waiting for the world to give me permission and an opportunity when really the responsibility to participate in my story and dream was solely mine. It’s been a scary, messy and thrilling journey of personal and artistic development, but this is the life I want to live: vulnerable, honest, bold, and human. This is the woman I am."

When Alyson first rose to fame, she was not a singer. She was a young dancer and an actress. Once she became passionate about singing, she didn't instantly rush into making an album. She began training. She took voice lessons and classes. She put in the work because singing wasn't something that originally came naturally to her.

Alyson Stoner is super close with her mom. The two have been tied to the hip for years. Her mom has supported everything she's wanted to do in life from singing, to dancing, to acting.

It's no doubt that parents are their kids biggest cheerleaders, but from the looks of this picture, maybe Alyson wasn't the easiest daughter to raise. She posted this picture on Mother's Day with the caption, "Happy #MothersDay!! You're stuck with me."

Alyson was pretty much implying that her mother might want to get rid of her. Most likely she was joking, but who knows. Maybe she was a difficult teenager. Either way, it looks like the two of them really love each other. There's nothing like a mother-daughter bond.

She Loves To Read
