Annabella Avery Thorne was born on Oct. 8, 1997 in Pembroke Pines, FL, and raised in an Irish, Italian and Cuban household. The future star was just six weeks old when she first modeled, appearing in a pictorial for Parents magazine. Ever since then, Thorne graced the pages of international magazines and print advertisements for Barbie, Target and Ralph Lauren. She also appeared in more than 40 television commercials, including KFC and Texas Instruments. When she was in second grade, Thorne was diagnosed with dyslexia. She found it difficult to deal with other children making fun of her handicap, so her family decided to homeschool her instead. In 2010, Thorne revealed to American Cheerleader magazine that she overcame dyslexia by reading everything she could find, even the labels on cereal boxes. After relocating to California to pursue acting fulltime, Thorne appeared in an uncredited role in the Farrelly Brothers comedy feature "Stuck on You" starring Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Cher. Guest appearances soon followed, and Thorne found herself acting on hit primetime television series such as "Entourage" (HBO, 2004- ), "The O.C." (Fox, 2003-07), and even a few skits for late night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (ABC, 2003- ). Thorne landed her first recurring role in 2007, playing a young socialite on the ABC drama series "Dirty Sexy Money." The show revolved around a wealthy New York family and a mysterious murder involving the family's lawyer (Peter Krause).
In 2008, Thorne acted opposite Christian Slater and Taylor Lautner on "My Own Worst Enemy" (Fox, 2008). She played the daughter of Slater's character, a middle-class family man who leads a double life as a secret agent, on the short-lived series. Even though "My Own Worst Enemy" only lasted nine episodes, Thorne's role earned her a Young Artist Award in 2009 for Best Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama) - Supporting Young Actress. That same year, Thorne landed a featured role on "Little Monk," a 10-episode Web series based on the USA criminal drama series "Monk" (2002-09) that followed the show's main characters as children. The budding star returned to primetime television when she joined the cast of the critically acclaimed series "Big Love" during its fourth season. Thorne replaced actress Jolean Wejbe in the role of Tancy "Teenie" Henrickson, the youngest daughter of polygamist Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) and his first wife Barbara (Jeanne Tripplehorn).
After mostly acting on serious dramas, Thorne landed a guest-starring appearance on the hit Disney Channel comedy "Wizards of Waverly Place" (2007- ), starring Selena Gomez as a New York teen who, along with her family, possessed magical powers. Her "Wizards" guest appearance led to Thorne's breakout starring role on "Shake It Up!" The Disney Channel series followed aspiring dancer CeCe Jones (Thorne) and her best friend Rocky (Zendaya Coleman). The girls' dreams come true after they land featured spots on a local dance TV show. Thorne raised a few eyebrows in 2011 after a photo surfaced on the Web of the 13-year-old Disney star wearing a skimpy two-piece bathing suit. Many were outraged by the photo and criticized Thorne for flaunting too much at her age. Her mother came out in Thorne's defense, reportedly telling news outlets that she did not find her daughter's beach outfit inappropriate and that she was covered up for most of the day.
