Being a child actor is demanding work and often takes its toll on the child – interminable hours on set, movie premieres, events, fundraisers; the list is endless. This combined with the fame and riches that come with stardom, robs the child of the chance of experiencing a normal childhood life. However, some kids overcome these obstacles and emerge as well-rounded individuals on and off the screen. One of them is the super talented Ariana Greenblatt.
Ariana Greenblatt’s Biography (Age)
Ariana Greenblatt was born in Colorado in the state of New York on the 27th of August 2007 to Soli and Shon Greenblatt. Her first big break came in 2014 when she reprised the role of Raina, on “Liv and Maddie,” created by John D. Beck and Ron Hart which aired on Disney Channel at the tender age of 6. For most child actors, that would be the end of their child-acting career, but not for Ariana. She landed a role in Duda Brothers, a popular Nickelodeon show in the same year.
Thereafter, the sky was the limit for little Ariana. Stamping her mark as a talented child actor, she became a sought after star in many children shows. She starred regularly in the popular TV show Stuck in the Middle, an American comedy Disney show by Alison Brown and Linda Figueiredo, where she attained a greater height as she played the role of Daphne Diaz, the adorable last child of 7 boisterous siblings who can be quite vengeful. The show achieved mainstream popularity among children and teenagers, and so did Ariana.
From thereon, the sky was the limit for Ariana Greenblatt. She made the bold transition from YV shows to full-length movies, marking her debut with a role in the comedy flick “Bad Moms Christmas” wherein she was applauded for her role as Lori, Jesse’s daughter.

Ariana was widely applauded for her depiction of a young Gamora, eliciting high praise from fans and critics alike. She was applauded for her near-perfect acting, particularly running through a range of emotions.
Despite these achievements, Ariana Greenblatt is not resting on her oars. 2020 is scheduled to be a groundbreaking year for her, starring in 4 feature-length movies all due to be released in 2020.
