Shake It Up
Caroline Sunshine plays Tinka, a unique, theatrical and particularly ambitious dancer from a fictional country in the Disney Channel comedy series "Shake It Up."
At age three, Sunshine performed in a ballet recital and fell in love with the stage. In kindergarten she played Goldie Locks in her classroom play, but has only recently pursued acting professionally.
Prior to joining the cast of "Shake It Up," Sunshine made her feature film debut in 20th Century Fox's "Marmaduke," starring Owen Wilson, and she played Lizzie Spitz in the CBS television movie "Team Spitz," with Sarah Chalke.
Her stage credits include "Annie Warbucks" at the Orange County Children's Theatre, "Nutcracker" at the Academy of Dance and South Coast Performing Arts, and "Stage Door" at Lutheran High School in Orange County.
Born September 5, in Atlanta, Georgia, Sunshine enjoys dancing, travelling, baking and outdoor activities, including snorkeling and rafting. Currently she resides in Orange County, California with her father, Thom, mother Karen and her two younger brothers, Johnny and Chris.
