According to sources, Disney execs were first impressed by Carpenter when she was cast in the ill-fated Disney XD pilot, Gulliver Quinn, with Jon Heder. Disney later hired her as the voice of a princess in the animated Disney Junior hit Sofia The First.

Carpenter will next be seen as the tween version of Becki Newton’s character, Chloe, in the Fox comedy The Goodwin Games.

    Wouldn’t it been more cool if her best friend was Angela and Shawn daughter or do you think they will have them had a child

    What about Eric?

  6. Somebody behind the scenes on this is making promises they can’t keep, because like three sites have claimed this story as an exclusive.

  7. Sarah says:

    well that’s definitely not a shawn/angela kid… she doesn’t look like either of them! :(

    …but maybe if you dyed her hair brown and gave her a slight tan, she could be? ah i wanted her to be their kid!

  8. Alex says:

    Maybe she will end up dating Shawn and Angela’s son when they get signed on to do the show. /The two can get married and she will be Maya Fox-Hunter.
