Shake It Up child star Davis Cleveland is unrecognisable 11 years on from Disney debut

DAVIS Cleveland appeared on Disney’s Shake It Up just over a decade ago – and he looks completely unrecognisable these days. 

Appearing as a fresh-faced eight-year-old at the time, Davis portrayed Flynn Jones, CeCe’s mischievous younger brother on the beloved show.


Flynn was the quintessential annoying sibling who played plenty of pranks, but still cared about his family. 

Davis, the cute actor behind Flynn, will turn 20 early next year – and Shake It Up fans will barely recognise him now.

Despite continuing his acting career for a few years, Davis hasn't had a huge presence either on-screen or on social media.

Plenty of actors have a pet cause that they support with their celebrity status and Cleveland, during the prime of his child stardom, was no different. 

He spent some time working to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis and efforts to find a cure for the genetic disease that affects the lung, pancreas, and respiratory system. 

Davis' television career started just a few years before Shake It Up.

The actor began his acting career doing commercial work in his home state, but then moved to Los Angeles to break into the business.

For now, Cleveland isn't particularly active on social media, even though his Instagram account has 99,000 followers.
