Biography - Veronica Dunne
Veronica Dunne a California native stars as the lead role of Marisa in the Disney Channel series
"K.C.Undercover" opposite Disney veteran Zendaya. Dunne holds her own as Zendaya's on-screen best
friend; the outgoing life of the party and free spirit. Dunne, who began performing at the age of four, has
acting in her blood; her father is Murphy Dunne ("The Blues Brothers"). She has grown up to stand on her
own two feet with Musical Theater and stage as a foundation for her own acting career.
Dunne got her first taste of professional theater when she starred as Cinderella in the Lythgoe Family
Production of "Cinderella" with Hollywood veterans Jennifer Leigh Warren (Broadway's "Little Shop of
Horrors") and Freddie Stroma ("Harry Potter") for co-stars. She went to star in the stage production of
"Into the Woods," "Chicago," "Cabaret," and eventually "The Black Suits" written by Joe Iconis
(Broadway's "Smash") which let her to New York. There she auditioned and was offered the lead role of
'Sophie' in Broadway's "Mama Mia," ultimately taking the role of 'Marisa' in "K.C. Undercover" instead.
Dunne, now nineteen years old, offers a unique point of view to fans that often look to her younger peers
for guidance, setting apart in the industry and providing a different type of work ethic and determination.
She aspires to be a strong role model and inspiration to fans of the channel. Dunne loves to be able to tell
a story and take her audience on a journey, often performing for the simple act of making people laugh
and bringing them joy; considering being a comic relief as a blessing. She looks up to Jennifer Lawrence,
Jessica Chasten and Lucille Ball for their versatility, professionalism, and dedication to the craft of acting.
In her spare time, Dunne enjoys singing, dancing, Ballet (point) musical theater, spending time at the
Beach and an overall movie buff.
