The iconic actress who starred in the Disney movie Cow Belles 17 years ago looks exactly the same in new photos.
The 34-year-old beauty recently shared a gorgeous pic of herself to Instagram rocking a mini dress and black leather motorcycle jacket, and captioned it, ‘I simply never stand still for a photo’ (seen below).
Her youthful glow was evident, as she looked like her high school character, Jane Vaughn, from Degrassi: The Next Generation.
The Canadian actress also didn’t appear much older than her character in ‘Dear Erica,’ in which she starred back in 2009.
Can you guess the star?
That’s right! It’s Paula Brancati, the actress best known for playing Sarah Van Dyke in the Disney Channel teen comedy Cow Belles, which premiered in 2006.
Born on June 6, 1989 in Ontario, Canada, Paula pursued a life in Tinseltown as both a dancer and an actor before landing a few juicy roles.
In 2003, she made her debut in Hollywood with Cold Creek Manor, where she portrayed a young acquaintance of a displaced New York family residing in a house with a mysterious history.
The thriller marked her collaboration with such esteemed actors as Christopher Plummer and Dennis Quaid.
Following this, she earned a Gemini Award nomination for her role in the semi-animated sci-fi series Dark Oracle, where she played Cally Stone, who, along with her twin brother, unravels the mysteries of a comic book predicting the future.
After Dark Oracle bowed out following two seasons, Paula joined the cast of Degrassi: The Next Generation, a Canadian teen drama that originated in 1979, with its latest iteration beginning in 2001.
She signed up for the popular series in 2007, garnering her another Gemini Award nomination in 2009.
That same year, she became part of the series Being Erica, created by Jana Sinyor, who had previously worked on Dark Oracle and ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation.
More recently, Paula was seen in the 2019 drama From The Vine, based on the acclaimed novel Finding Marco by Kenneth Canio Cancellara.
‘At its core, this film is about family, about returning to your roots when you’re in crisis, and discovering that there’s a lot of joy to be found there,’ she told Accenti in 2020.
She also served as a co-producer on the film.
‘So, my rule of thumb as a producer is that when a story won’t get out of my head and I’m stuck with it, when I get a little obsessed about it, I know that that’s a really good inclination that I should pursue it,’ she told the outlet at the time.
