In June 2016, Geek Charming actress Sarah Hyland channeled her inner clownfish in the best possible way at the world premiere of “Finding Dory” held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

Five years earlier, she starred as Woodlands Academy’s top girl, Dylan Schoenfield, in the 2011 Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming.
Directed by Jeffrey Hornaday from a screenplay by Elizabeth Hackett and Hilary Galanoy, the film premiered on November 11, 2011, when Sarah Hyland was 20 years old. She celebrated her 21st birthday on November 24, 2011.

Sasha Pieterse, who starred as Amy Loubalu, the best friend of Sarah Hyland’s character, is five years younger than Sarah Hyland and Matt Prokop.
“This “high school princess” persona she has, she’s created for herself, so for the first half of the movie, you really see her put on a character. It’s not the true Dylan Shoenfield that you think it is, I’m sure, for the first half of the movie,” Hyland told Channel Guide Magazine about her role as a high school diva.
“Any viewer would hate me watching it. Towards the end, you really see who she is, and what kind of person she is, and why she was acting the way she was,” she added about Dylan Schoenfield.

On the blue carpet at the premiere of Finding Dory, the “Modern Family” star looked just like a mermaid on land in her colorful, striped ankle-length skirt from Alice + Olivia paired with a red crop top.

She fit right into the aqua theme, it seems, since Disney Pixar went all out with a large sandcastle, fish tank, and bubbles on the blue carpet.
