Tiffany Dawn Thornton (born February 14, 1986) is an American actress, comedienne and singer-songwriter best known for her co-starring role as Tawni Hart on the Disney Channel Original Series, Sonny with a Chance and So Random!.


Tiffany has an apparent knack for acting. She made her televison debut in the pilot episode of the short-lived FOX sitcom, Quintuplets starring Andy Richter and Spy Kids 3D star Ryan Pinkston. More TV appearances followed, more notably on the Disney Channel including Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana. Then in 2009, she was hired to star opposite Demi Lovato in the Disney Channel sitcom, Sonny with a Chance where she played Tawni Hart, a diva-typed girl, a main cast member of the fictional sketch comedy show So Random! and friendly rival for the title character Sonny. The show ended in 2011 when Demi left the show to concentrate on her personal struggles and even entered into a treatment facility; as a result, Sonny with a Chance spun-off into the aforementioned So Random!, sketch comedy show within a show which ended up getting cancelled itself less than one year later.
