In addition, Tasia Alexis made a TikTok in 2022, which had fans questioning once more whether she previously worked on a Disney Channel show. Here’s what happened.

A user commented on one of Alexis’s videos, stating, “You look insanely familiar but I cannot place you!”

Responding to this user, the social media star revealed that she once starred on a Disney Channel show. In the video, she said: “I am actually from Disney Channel. I went from Disney Channel to prison.”

For those wondering why Alexis found herself in prison, per HITC, it was for “forgery and possession of methamphetamine.” Alexis was 20 years old at the time, and she has revealed that she was in jail for eight months.

So, Did Tasia Alexis Feature on a Disney Channel Show?

Of course, it goes without saying that 2014 and 2022 rumors notwithstanding, Tasia Alexis never actually featured on the Disney Channel or worked with the Walt Disney Company. These were just rumors circulating about the internet that never actually came to fruition.

Now, Tasia Alexis Hussey, per her own admission, has stepped away from her Vine-making days and personality and is interested in focusing on living a more peaceful life inspired by her Christian faith.
