Mendler has a recurring role as Justin Russo’s vampire girlfriend, Juliet Van Heusen, on Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-winning series, “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Her other credits include a guest-starring role on the hit series “JONAS,” where she sang opposite Nick Jonas, and the upcoming 20th Century Fox sequel “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.”
Within a few weeks of deciding to pursue acting, Mendler landed a guest-starring role on ABC’s long-running daytime drama, “General Hospital,” and later had roles in “Alice Upside Down,” “The Clique” and ABC Family’s “Labor Pains.”
Mendler first caught the acting bug at age 8 while attending local acting camps in the San Francisco Bay area. Her early experience led to local roles in both dramatic and musical theatre, and she eventually became the youngest performer in the San Francisco Fringe Festival. Soon she was dabbling in voice acting, which led to roles in the animated feature film “The Legend of Buddha” and the video game based on the comic book series “Bone.”
Born December 18, 1992 in Washington, DC, Mendler is currently enrolled in an online high school through The Education Program for Gifted Youth at Stanford University and in her spare time enjoys dancing and songwriting.
