A 22-year-old former Disney Channel star will join the White House press team, a new report said Wednesday.
Caroline Sunshine, who played Tinka Hessenheffer on the channel’s show about teenage dancers “Shake It Up,” formerly served as a White House intern and has some conservative bona fides despite her age, CNN reported.
“Caroline Sunshine was a White House intern. In college, she was involved with the American Enterprise Institute and an active member of her school’s Model United Nations team,” administration spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said in a statement to the network.
Team Trump has yet to name a replacement for outgoing communications director Hope Hicks.
Sunshine’s role in the press office was not immediately clear.
