Many fans of former Disney Channel actress Caroline Sunshine are shocked to see her latest role is a lot more controversial, to say the least.

Sunshine, 28, shot to fame as a teenager, starring alongside Zendaya and Bella Thorne in the 2010 series Shake It Up.

The American actress is still on the screen – but these days she’s promoting and defending ex-President Donald Trump amid his campaign to regain the White House.

It’s come as a huge surprise to millions of Sunshine’s fans.

‘In a truly wtf moment I just learned that the actress who played the evil Eastern European exchange student in the Disney channel show Shake It Up, opposite Zendaya, is now Trump’s deputy comms director,’ wrote the X (formerly Twitter) account @OrganizerMemes on Monday night.

The post included a screenshot of Sunshine as Tinka Hessenheffern from Shake It Up, juxtaposed with her X account stating, ‘Deputy Director of Communications, Donald J. Trump for President’ and ‘Come and take it.’

It had more than 2.7million views, 27,000 likes and 2,000 reposts by late afternoon Tuesday.

‘That was not the turn of events I was expecting??? HOW DID SHE EVEN GET FROM HERE TO THERE??’ wrote one X user.

Another X user remarked: ‘Wow guess you could say that she….. shook it up.’

‘Yeah it’s all show business,’ replied an X user.

Another X user wrote: ‘I’m currently rewatching shake it up and every time she’s on my screen I can’t help but wonder why??? Like she could’ve had a pretty decent acting career.’

In one of her most recent TV appearances, Sunshine touted Trump’s performance in the first 2024 debate that was a disaster for Biden and has led to calls from within his own party for him to drop out of the race.
