Donald Trump's White House may have lost more than a few good men and women recently, but it's about to get a little bit of sunshine...Caroline Sunshine, that is.

The former Disney darling joining the White House press team as an assistant, reports CNN.

The 22-year-old actress and trained dancer is probably best known for her role starring opposite Zendaya on Shake It Up as European exchange student Tinka Hessenheffer, but this isn't her first role in the White House.

While attending Claremont McKenna College, the one-time child star interned at the White House, which has recently had a number of its own shake-it-ups,

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told CNN in a statement, "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."

The statement continued, "Prior to her internship at the White House, Caroline interned for the Office of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the College Republican National Committee and the California Republican Party."

Despite being almost inactive on social media for the past year, Caroline still has over 500,000 Twitter followers and over 235,000 Instagram followers.

Sunshine was also in the 2010 film Marmaduke, starring Owen Wilson.

The little politco also most recently appeared in the 2017 Lifetime movie, Mommy, I Didn't Do It.

The White House, captained by reality star-turned-president Trump, has been all about scooping up larger-than-life personalities and famous faces in recent days.

CNBC host and conservative personality Larry Kudlow was appointed as the director of the White House National Economic Council by Trump. Fox News analyst John Bolton will be the next national security adviser following the exits of Michael Flynn and H.R. McMaster. His tenure is believed to begin on April 9.
