Kira Kosarin Celebrates The 10th Anniversary Of Auditioning For 'The Thundermans' By Sharing Audition Video

Kira Kosarin is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of her The Thundermans audition!


The 24-year-old actor and singer of course played Phoebe Thunderman on the hit Nickelodeon comedy series, which premiered in 2013 and ran for four and a half years.

“exactly 10 years ago… I auditioned to play a girl named Phoebe Thunderman, and my life changed forever. My team at @nickelodeon tracked it down for me in honor of the anniversary and I’m truly sobbing watching it for the first time,” she captioned her post on Instagram.

“So much of who I am, the good, the bad, and the ugly, is all thanks to my life during those 106 episodes. I’m so proud of that excited, fast-talking, energetic little 14 year old and all the hard word she did that helped lead us where we are now 🥹”

“Thank you to @jspingarn and everybody at the Nickelodeon team who took a chance on me, and thank all of YOU for you letting me be your silly little superhero for all these years 💙⚡️ I’m forever grateful and I’m so happy to have this tape now 😭

endless thank you to @jspingarn, @jessieb109, Brian Banks, and everyone at @nickelodeon who believed in this little 14 year old enough to let her lead such a special project. Forever grateful 💙”

Chris Tallman, who played her father Hank Thunderman on the show, commented saying: "I’m smiling ear to ear! You’re the best, so proud of you."

Rosa Blasi, who played Phoebe's mother Barb/Electress on the series, commented "I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! It also demonstrates phenomenal comedic timing you naturally have. Wow!"

Nickelodeon also left a comment, saying "a star in the making 🧡"

Check out the audition video below!


If you missed it, Kira and her co-stars had a mini reunion last summer.

There's a ton to unpack in this candy-colored musical. It's got clever horror references, enchanting sets, and a dangerous mystery unfolding all around Monster High's new students. The underlying messages are full of monster heart, urging the resident ghouls and boys to embrace their differences, be proud of who they are, and, of course, it's all about the power of friendship. We get to explore this monster realm with Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Harris) - a half human, half wolf - who's transferred to Monster High for the very first time. Though there are plenty of spooky teens lurking the halls, we find out from the trailer that the greatest threat to monster-kind is humans, and it seems there may be an "untrue monster heart" among them.

In this first-look clip, Clawdeen meets her roommates Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot), the child of Frankenstein, and Dracula's daughter Draculaura (Nayah Damasen) for the first time in their shared dorm room. It opens up with the adorably excited Frankie explaining a little bit about themself to Clawdeen. It turns out, Frankie has pieces of famous brains in their head, including Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Plato and "some lady named Liz who apparently invented the internet, but didn't get any credit." That would be Elizabeth Feinler. Clawdeen is attempting to absorb all of this information when Frankie's finger pops off. Then we meet Draculaura, who's been tucked away in her coffin the entire time. When she comes out she's friendly, but very much a Type A personality, setting boundaries and ground rules for her new roommates.

The description under the clip explains that Monster High welcomes students "from all walks of life." The classrooms are full of ghosts, mummies, sea monsters and more, and from the clip, we see that the dorms are decked out in what can only be described as Target's back-to-school-for-ghouls collection. The character designs are splashy and vibrant, based on the horror-glam Mattel dolls, and the banter is quick and witty. If you're looking for a family-friendly Halloween flick this season, Monster High: The Movie is perfect!

The hauntingly fun cast joining Harris, Balagot and Damasen includes Marci T. House as Headmistress Bloodgood, Lilah Fitzgerald as Ghoulia, Case Walker as Deuce Gorgon, Jy Prishkulnik as Cleo De Nile, Lina Lecompte as Lagoona Blue and more.

The director for this Mattel-inspired spooky film is Todd Holland, a man with plenty of experience in comedy under his belt. More specifically, Holland has worked on a number of classic sitcoms and series through the '90s and 2000s, including Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures, My So-Called Life, Friends, and Malcolm in the Middle, to more recent shows like 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Holland also directed for Twin Peaks and Tales from the Crypt, lending the perfect comedy-to-horror ratio for Monster High to be a new kids' classic. The story for the film is penned by the writer of Disney's The Princess and the Frog, Greg Erb, and adapted by Billy and Matt Eddy (Eureka!).

And there's more Monster High on the way! Nickelodeon will premiere the brand new Monster High CG-animated series on October 28, just in time for Halloween!
