An actress, singer, and dancer all rolled into one, Cassie Scerbo is best known for memorable roles such as in Bring It On: In It To Win It (2007), Make It Or Break It (2009-12), Sharknado (2013) and Sharknado 3 (2015) respectively. She was also part of the all-girl pop band Slumber Party Girls.
Born on Long Island, New York, Scerbo boasts an Italian ancestry. She was brought up in Parkland, Florida, and has also been one of the soccer players in the Parkland Soccer Club. Before she was cast in Make It or Break It, she spent her entire life in Florida.
How It All Began?
She was hardly 14 when Scerbo went to her first audition for the lead role of Disney’s hit show Hannah Montana, which eventually was given to Miley Cyrus. However, over the years, she has maintained a cool and collected temperament. Cassie Scerbo moved to Parkland at the age of 4 to live with her parents, John and Donna, who still stay there. After honing her singing, dancing, and acting skills for six long years, she auditioned for a Burger King commercial in Miami and managed to bag the project.
In 2006, Scerbo’s selection as a member of the Slumber Party Girls band was the stepping stone for her future successes to come. This selection was soon followed by a stint on the CBS show KOL Secret Slumber Party. However, before she began her junior year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided to take her career a few notches higher. This prompted her to move to Los Angeles along with her mother, and roles soon started pouring in.
Belonging to a well-bonded family, Scerbo has always been a grounded person. What further makes her a respectable figure is her passion for philanthropy. She even became the Vice-President of Boo2Bullying, a non-profit organization that seeks aimed at ending bullying through education.
What to Look Forward To?
In 2019, Scerbo made her debut as a director for a project that was very close to her heart. She roped in her long-time friend and contemporary actress Bailee Madison and her brother Connor Madison for it. Titled Code Red, the project was a documentary dealing with the Parkland shooting and highlighting the school safety policies. It is expected to be released on an OTT platform soon.
As affirmed by Cassie Scerbo, this is not a political documentary. The real-life tragedy made them think extensively about what to do, especially involving the people of Parkland. The documentary aims to emphasize how parents and students can immediately take charge of the situation by being pro-active in more ways than one.
