You might recognize Alyson Stoner from Missy Elliott’s “Work It” music video, or from any of the films and television shows she worked on as a kid, including Cheaper By The Dozen, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and more. Years later, 21-year-old Alyson is all grown up and paying tribute to Missy Elliott for letting her shine when she was younger.

“To this day, I remember vividly Missy Elliott, Ludacris, and my grandma riding in a golf cart to set. My grandma went back to Ohio and told her bowling friends, ‘Guess what? I was riding to set with Missy and Ridiculous!'” Alyson told BuzzFeed in an exclusive interview.
The “Work It” music video was one of a handful of appearances Missy and Alyson made together all those years ago. Since growing up, Alyson has pursued her own music career. Check out one of her music videos below, plus photos of Alyson on the shows you know from your childhood.
