While still working with Disney, Bridgit Mendler tried her hand at a singing career. You might remember her debut single “Ready or Not,” which she released in 2012 followed by an album (via Teen Vogue). She later released an EP in 2016 (via Album of the Year), but since then it looks as though she’s focused more on her acting career.
Post-Disney, she had a role on NBC sitcom “Undateable,” and also appeared on an episode of “Nashville.” In 2019, she had a main role on Netflix Christmas sitcom “Merry Happy Whatever” as Emmy Quinn, the youngest sibling of the Quinn family, alongside the likes of Dennis Quaid and fellow Disney alum Ashley Tisdale. However, it was canceled after the first season (via PopCulture).
Away from her acting career, Mendler married her partner Griffin Cleverly in 2019 — and reunited with a number of her former “Good Luck Charlie” co-stars at the wedding. Setting herself apart from many in Hollywood, she has a degree in anthropology from the University of Southern California and has also embarked on a graduate program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she is currently working on her Ph.D (via MIT). Could she be one of the smartest celebrities around?
