Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an actress who is making a HUGE name for herself on multiple YouTube platforms. If you’ve seen the TBS hit ‘Are We There Yet?’, or various other hit TV shows, then you will know exactly who I’m talking about, but just in case…it’s Teala Dunn. At the very young age of 17, Teala has had a career that has spanned more than 10 years, and is now adding YouTube star to her detailed resume. With appearances on the hit YouTube channel ‘AwesomnessTV’, as well as maintaining her own highly successful channels, Teala is taking over the industry, and is definitely one to watch. So, if you want to know more about this talented girl, then read on! Oh go on, you know you want to!!!
Teala began her professional career in 2002 with a guest starring role on the TV mega hit ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’. She then had a 3 year stint as the character of ‘Tuck’ on the popular NickJr. (a branch of the Nickelodeon network) animated show ‘WonderPets!’). During her time on the show, Teala also had roles in the films ‘Phoebe in Wonderland’ and ‘Enchanted’, as well as the highly popular Nickelodeon show ‘The Naked Brothers Band’, and the dramedy ‘Queens Supreme’. After ‘WonderPets!’ ended, Teala went on to co-star on the popular TBS sitcom ‘Are We There Yet?’. Once ‘Are We There Yet’ wrapped, Teala had guest starring roles on the hit Disney Channel shows ‘Shake It Up’, ‘Dog With A Blog’, and the CBS sitcom ‘The Crazy Ones’, among others (so basically Teala’s been working steadily in TV and Film since 2005…yeah that’s impressive!).
On August 17th, 2010 Teala uploaded her first video on her channel ‘Tealaxx2’. The video was a makeup tutorial for middle/high school aged girls (Back to school makeup look. For (high school and middle school) – YouTube). I really enjoyed this tutorial, because it was informative, and Teala showed her ease in front of a camera. I also really liked that the majority of the products that Teala used were drugstore products, and thus easy for most middle/high school girls to buy. I thought that the look was perfect for school, the summer time, or if you just want a very natural look. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Teala’s ‘Makeup Collection’ video (Makeup Collection 2013 ? – YouTube). I found this video perfect for anyone who loves makeup, or is new to makeup and wants some suggestions. I loved how organize Teala is with her makeup, and if you have a large makeup collection, you can definitely get some suggestions from this video. Another aspect of the video that I really liked was the fact that Teala’s makeup collection contains both high end products, and drugstore makeup. I found that this makes Teala’s collection seem more obtainable by her fans. The final video that I am going to talk about in this section is Teala’s ‘Morning Routine’ video (Morning Routine: Spring 2014 PLUS GIVEAWAY!!! – YouTube). I choose this video, because it’s like Twitter come to life! Seriously, you all know that Twitter was invented for us to obsess over what our favorite celebrities do in their day to day lives…that’s what it’s for right? I’m not alone in that right??? Good, I’m glad you all stalk your favorite celebrities on Twitter too…internet high five! Moving on…I really thought that all Teala Dunn fans would enjoy this video, because you get to see a few more products that Teala uses every day, and at the end of the video you can enter a contest and get free stuff (I think the contest might be closed by now, but Teala does a lot of contests and giveaways, so I would look out for them)!
Along with her ‘Tealaxx2’ channel, Teala also has another channel (TTYLTEALA) where she occasionally vlogs, does behind the scenes videos, and so much more. The video I choose to profile from this channel was the behind the scenes video Teala did on the set of the ‘AwesomnessTV’ show ‘IMO’ Awesomeness. – YouTube (which stands for In My Opinion). In this video, you get to see all of the fun and craziness that happens on a set, and you also get small glimpses of other famous YouTubers that I have profiled, such as Meaghan Dowling, and Bethany Mota. I thought that this video was really fun to watch, and allowed Teala to really show her personality. Speaking of ‘AwesomnessTV’, if you didn’t already know, you can catch Teala on a few of the shows on ‘AwesomnessTV’, such as: ‘IMO’, ‘How To Be A YouTube Star’ (in this first episode of the series, you can learn how to make a vlog How To Make a Vlog with Teala Dunn – How To Be A YouTube Star Ep. 1) , and a number of the skits on the channel (such as this one that lets you know whether or not you are addicted to YouTube…based off of the title of this blog post, you can tell that I am Addicted to YouTube with Teala Dunn & Meg Deangelis)
So as you can see, Teala Dunn can pretty much succeed on whatever media of entertainment she chooses. I think that Teala has proven that she is not only a talented individual, but also a very smart business woman, due to the fact that she has taken advantage of traditional media (TV and Film), as well as the new media outlet YouTube, to advance her career. With brains, talented, and an ever growing fan base, it is VERY safe to bet that Teala Dunn will be around for YEARS to come (and we wouldn’t want it any other way).
