So far, so great on this series. In Sonny With a Chance, Lovato starred as the title character, a young comedian who gets her dream job as a comedian in Hollywood. This actor portrayed Sonny Munroe for several years until the original series ended in 2011.

Years later, the casts of So Random and Sonny With a Chance reunited over video chat to discuss their time with Disney Channel. Lovato specifically mentioned Tiffany Thornton, AKA Tawni Hart, as an inspiration during the challenging months that followed. 

“When I went away to treatment for the first time, I remember it like, you were my biggest inspiration coming out of it because you dealt with all of those pressures of being a woman on TV,” Lovato said, according to Buzzfeed.
