Paris Berelc is an American actress and model who is best known for her starring roles as Skylar Storm on the Disney XD series Mighty Med and Lab Rats: Elite Force, as well as her role as Alexa on the Netflix original series Alexa & Katie. At just 24 years old, Paris has already made a name for herself in the entertainment industry thanks to her charismatic acting abilities, gymnastics skills, and overall vibrant persona.
As a loyal fan who has been following Paris‘ blossoming career over the years, I‘m excited to provide this in-depth introduction to the talented young star…
Her Humble Midwestern Beginnings
Paris Berelc was born on December 29, 1998 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to parents Angela and Marc Berelc. She has two younger sisters, Saxon and Priscilla. Paris first began gymnastics lessons at just 2 years old, showing early signs of her natural athletic abilities. By age 5, she started appearing in local commercials and theatre productions in the Milwaukee area.
When Paris was only 13, she convinced her parents to allow her to move to Los Angeles to pursue acting full-time. They agreed, under the condition that she would continue her online schooling. It was a scary leap of faith, but even at such a young age, Paris showed the dedication and maturity needed to make it in Hollywood.
Her Big Breakthroughs
Paris‘ talent and work ethic paid off quickly, as she soon started landing roles soon after her move to LA. One of her first major acting credits was a 2014 guest spot playing gymnast Dani on Disney Channel‘s Lab Rats. This allowed her to showcase both her acting and her gymnastic skills.
But Paris‘ big breakout opportunity came in 2015 when she was cast as the lead character Skylar Storm on Disney XD‘s superhero series Mighty Med. As an extraterrestrial superhero with abilities like flight, super speed, and power projection, Paris got to play an empowering role model for young viewers. She fully committed herself to the fun and adventurous part for the show‘s two seasons.
After Mighty Med ended in 2015, Paris took on another lead role in 2018‘s Disney Channel movie Zombies. Set in a world where zombies and humans coexist, Paris played zombie cheerleader Addison who falls for a human football player. Her stellar acting, singing, and dancing made the film an instant hit. She later reprised the role in the 2020 sequel Zombies 2.
Paris also starred as the lead character of Jodi in the 2020 Netflix movie Tall Girl. She related deeply to Jodi‘s insecurities about her height and brought so much heart to the role. As a longtime fan, I was blown away by her poignant and funny performance.
Clearly, Paris has talent way beyond her years when it comes to both comedic and dramatic acting. Her dedication to every role is obvious – she does her own stunts, sings and dances with gusto, and fully embraces every new character.
Her Passion for Giving Back
On top of her busy acting schedule, Paris makes giving back a priority. She has been an Ambassador for the Starlight Children‘s Foundation, an organization that provides entertainment and education for hospitalized kids. Paris often visits children‘s hospitals to play games, sign autographs, and brighten up their day.
Paris has also been a prominent advocate for DIPG, a rare pediatric brain cancer. She constantly works to raise awareness and research funds for this underfunded disease. After befriending a young fan named Claire who passed away from DIPG, Paris even got a tattoo in her memory and stays closely connected to Claire‘s family.
It‘s clear from these selfless efforts that Paris has a heart of gold. She uses her platform to make a positive difference for children in need. Her passion for giving back inspires me so much as a fan.
