Bella Thorne was pigeonholed due to her Disney channel past

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actress Bella Throne says she was pigeonholed by her fans and casting directors because of her Disney Channel past.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, the "Famous In Love" star says she had to beg for auditions.

"Not only did fans pigeonhole me, but casting directors wouldn't read me anymore. They were like, 'No, we don't want her to come in because she's so Disney.' I had to literally beg for an audition," Throne says.

The actress, however, says after she auditioned, a casting director congratulated her and admitted he "totally misjudged" her.

"(A casting director) shook my hand in the audition and was like, 'I'm really sorry, I totally misjudged you, you're a great actress.
