co.uk, the actress who portrayed Bonnie Bennett on the popular show, opened up about her experience filming the show.

I was always the odd one out, she said. On the show, I was the only person of colour.

"I was already a little different" because I was the only performer and the only one who released [music] throughout the show.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Vampire Diaries actor explained how she would lie about her age in a bid to be a back-up dancer.

"I did back up dancing, but I was underage," Kat said.Because I was a minor, I couldn't actually go on tour as I wanted to with all the artists.

So I would make up my age, get a little bit further, and then get caught, explained Kat.

Then I gradually started getting guest star bookings; I performed a lot of Disney-related work.
