'Sofia the First': Who's Who
''Sofia has to deal with a lot of new things through her journey — new school, new family, new friends — and it's a little bit scary, but she realizes in the end that she can do anything if she sets her mind to it.''—Ariel Winter

''I'm actually named after Ariel from The Little Mermaid so it's exciting for me to get to play a princess. I've always wanted to be a princess.''
''Queen Miranda always seems to know the right thing to say. She's all about supporting Sofia, as well as her new stepkids.''—Sara Ramirez

''I like that it shows an example of a positive relationship between a mother and a daughter as they go through such a big transition in life together.''
''Baileywick is sort of the majordomo of the castle. He looks after the royal family and he has a particular fondness for Sofia. In some ways, Baileywick is the character I've always wanted to be in my real life. Born to look after people and help guide them. And I thought what greater joy and what greater complement to be Baileywick's voice.''—Tim Gunn

''If I were the parent of a young person, I would be thrilled to have my child completely enraptured with Sofia the First because it teaches you how important good qualities of characters are.''
"Clover is a furry Jiminy Cricket with a little bit of an attitude. The best part about being Clover is getting to sing all the songs. He definitely has a musical side.''—Wayne Brady

''Growing up as a Disney kid watching Disney movies and TV shows, to be part of a show like this is brilliant.''
