Sydney Sweeney felt too "terrified" to audition for the Disney Channel during her younger years.

The 26-year-old actress has enjoyed a meteoric rise over recent times, but Sydney admits that her success hasn't come easily.

The blonde beauty - who stars in 'The White Lotus' and 'Euphoria' - told BuzzFeed: "I auditioned for everything you could imagine!

"I was auditioning since I was like 12 years old, so ... anything, 'Modern Family' - all of it!"

By contrast, Sydney never auditioned for the Disney Channel, because she knew she'd struggle to perform in front of a live audience.

The actress explained: "I had stage fright and I knew you had to do that in front of a live audience. So that thought definitely terrified me a little bit."

Sydney has had lots of small roles on various TV shows - including 'Criminal Minds', 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Pretty Little Liars' - and those opportunities have helped her to prepare for her recent success.

She shared: "Honestly, I've learned so much from working on all of those different shows, even as a featured extra or a small co-star role."

Meanwhile, Sydney previously admitted that she "thrives in chaos".

The Hollywood star has been very busy in recent years and she doesn't any intention to slow down.

She told Variety: "Sometimes I love this crazy run I’m on, because I fall in love with so many characters and I want to do them all. And I love what I do. And then sometimes I’m like, ‘OK, maybe I should do one to two projects a year so I can give myself time at home with my family.’

"But I think that I’d get so unsteady. I thrive in chaos. I love having, like, five projects that I’m juggling, and I’m also reading ten scripts and three books at the same time. I love it."
