In 2015, she appeared as Evie, the daughter of the Evil Queen, in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendant In 2016 she appeared as Lola Perez in Adventures in Babysitting, as Melanie Diaz in Tini: The Movie and Tessa in A Cinderella Story: If the Shoe Fits.

“I grew up dressed like a Disney princess, I knew all the songs and I would sing them all day long,” Sofia Carson says in our interview, right after belting out tunes from Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. But irony is a funny thing: the 24-year-old rose to fame for playing a villain.
After landing minor roles on the Disney Channel, Carson’s big break came in 2015 when she starred in Descendants, an original movie-musical revolving around the children of Disney’s most iconic villains: Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella de Vil and the Evil Queen, the mother of Carson’s character, Evie. A sequel is set to air on July 21.
Then within a year of releasing her debut single “Love Is the Name” in April 2016 (she is currently working on her debut album), Carson starred in the newest installment of Cinderella Story (which Disney’s Selena Gomez and Hilary Duff have starred in before her). Now she’s focusing on conquering the fashion industry, making appearances at Paris Fashion Week and attending parties hosted by the likes of Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, before her first Academy Awards red carpet moment wearing Monique Lhuillier. “It’s what I’ve always been wanting—to be a part of the fashion world,” she admits. “[Paris Fashion Week] was surreal because I grew up really admiring theses icons. All of it is what I’ve always dreamed of.”
For better or for worse, Disney has a legacy as a launchpad for female stars from Britney Spears to Hilary Duff to Miley Cyrus, to newbies like Zendaya, Bella Thorne and Rowan Blanchard. Sofia Carson is next on the list. Here, she lets BAZAAR.com in on her life as a villain, her debut album, and what’s next.

(January 25, 2017) – Burbank, CA – Hollywood Records/Republic Records recording artist Sofia Carson announced her new single today. “Back To Beautiful” will be available this Friday, January 27, as a digital single bundle featuring two remixes of the song by Alan Walker and Stargate. Written by multi-platinum selling Alan Walker, Grammy Award-winning Stargate (Beyonce, Rihanna), and Julia Michaels & Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani, Fifth Harmony, John Legend) and produced by Alan Walker and Stargate, the song has a powerful message of self-empowerment, inner beauty, and compassion set to a lush and pulsating seductive track. The video for “Back To Beautiful” will be available early next month.
“Back To Beautiful” is the follow up to Sofia’s infectious debut single, “Love Is The Name,” which soared to the top of the Top 40 radio charts, and accumulated over 73 million video views.
Said Sofia, “I feel elated to share “Back To Beautiful” with the world. The song defines ‘beautiful’ not as a physical concept, but as a state of kindness in our hearts and in our minds – a message I hold close to my heart.”
Sofia is a multi-hyphenate force who has already earned a #1 album, with the chart-topping debut of the Descendants soundtrack, and has starred in four movies, with her fifth film set to premiere later this year. Her loyal and vast fan-base (5.3 + million followers on Instagram and 1.3 million likes on Facebook) continues to swell daily, and the budding talent received her first Teen Choice Award nomination last year for “Choice Music: Next Big Thing.”
