Bridgit Mendler Bio

Birthdate:: December 18, 1992
Birthplace: Washington, D.C.

You may have seen Bridgit on Wizards of Waverly Place when she played Justin’s vampire love interest. Now she’s got her own show on the Disney Channel called Good Luck Charlie. Find out more about the beautiful Bridgit Mendler in her Kidzworld bio!


Good Luck Charlie

Good Luck Charlie revolves around the daily lives of the Duncan family. Bridgit plays Teddy, the older sister to newborn baby Charlie. Teddy records a video diary in each episode that’s meant to give Charlie some advice about life as a teen.


Bridgit As Teddy

Bridgit had a long audition process for the role as Teddy, but the show’s producers, including Adam Bonnet, the VP of Disney programming, “just fell in love” with her. The show was originally called Love, Teddy, but producers worried the name would only attract girls—they wanted boys to watch too.


The name change seems to have worked because Good Luck Charlie premiered to 4.6 million viewers! No Disney Channel show has had such a high-rated premiere since The Suite Life on Deck.


Did You Know?

  • Bridgit has had roles in The Clique and Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel and starred alongside Lindsay Lohan in Labor Pains.
  • She played Nick Jonas’ love interest in the series premiere of JONAS. Lucky girl!
  • Bridgit’s favorite actress is Natalie Portman and her favorite actor is John Krasinski from The Office.
  • She got her first serious acting role on the soap opera General Hospital when she was only 13-years-old.
  • Bridgit got to record “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2 for DisneyMania 7. And word is she’ll be heading back into the studio to record again. “There are a couple of projects in the works,” she says. “I can’t really say much but those will be going on soon and then eventually I hope people will be able to hear some of my own music.”
