Biography

Considering her overnight stardom as a pop music princess at the tender age of 15, it came as a surprise to many when she transitioned into an accomplished actress. While still in her teens, she suddenly found herself on tour with the biggest teen acts in music after being discovered by talent scouts. Specials on MTV and her own television show followed, culminating with a role in the feature film, "The Princess Diaries" (2001). It was all happening so fast. However, unlike some of her pop contemporaries, Moore's story deviated from when she turned in a respectable performance alongside the likes of icon Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway. From there, Moore continued to grow as an actress, often in roles that played against her perceived type, exemplified by her turn as a judgmental, intolerant Christian student in the indie-comedy "Saved!" (2004) and as a villainous talent contestant in the "American Idol" lampoon, "American Dreamz" (2006). Later, Moore provided the voice of Rapunzel in the Disney reimagining of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Tangled" (2010). A fitting role, perhaps, for a singer-turned-actress whose successful career seemed more like a fantasy tale than some might have predicted for the onetime teen idol du jour.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I have been very lucky in the sense that I’m not the biggest star in the world," she says. "So I was a little bit more anonymous and had the ability to kind of maneuver into roles that were a little bit more unexpected from me because people didn’t expect much from me at all." – Moore on her transition to acting, quoted in Movie Hole, July 14, 2003

.

"There are those out there that definitely play up their sexuality and whatnot, but I don't and I never really have, so it's kind of weird to kind of see yourself in that light or for people to regard you in that light." – Moore to the Associated Press, April 16, 2004

.

In January 2007, Moore revealed that she suffered from mild depression.

.

"There's a side of me that's gregarious and outgoing, and I like to interact with people. But then there's the opposite extreme – I just like to be by myself, watching TV or reading a book." – Moore to Interview magazine, September 2007

.

Moore branched out to the fashion world with her own line named Mblem.
