Veronica Dunne (born March 2, 1995) is an American actress who is known for her role as Sarah Myers in the movie, Locker Love.
Dunne stars as free-spirited and outgoing Marisa, K.C.’s trusted best friend who is always in the know about fashion and cute boys, in Disney Channel’s live-action spy-comedy series for kids, tweens and families, “K.C. Undercover.”
Dunne guest-starred on numerous hit shows, including Disney XD’s “Kickin’ It,” Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally” and “The Suite Life on Deck” and ABC’s “According to Jim.”
A Malibu, California native, Dunne began performing at the age of four. Her love for music and acting, which she attributes in part to her father Murphy Dunne (“Blues Brothers”), led her to musical theater.
She landed her first professional theater role as ‘Cinderella’ in the Lythgoe Family Production of “Cinderella,” alongside Hollywood veterans Jennifer Leigh Warren (Broadway’s “Little Shop of Horrors”) and Freddie Stroma (“Harry Potter”). She went on to star in several popular stage productions, including “Into the Woods,” “Chicago,” “Cabaret,” and eventually “The Black Suits,” written by Joe Iconis (Broadway’s “We the People”).
In her spare time, Dunne enjoys singing, dancing (training as a ballerina and on point for three years), musical theater, going to the beach and spending time with family and friends.
Life and Career
She has grown up to stand on her own two feet with Musical Theater and stage as a foundation for her own acting career.

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.
