Streaming right now on Disney+ is the original film Prom Pact, a modern take on an 80s romantic comedy.

It's about two best friends who are balancing the stress of college applications and the drama of senior prom.

One of the stars, Peyton Elizabeth Lee, has been a familiar face in Disney films and series since her breakout role on the Disney Channel show 'Andi Mack.'

In her latest film, 'Prom Pact,' the now 18-year-old Lee stars alongside another big Disney star, Milo Manheim.

As best friends, they make a pact: instead of missing out on the big dance, they'll go together.

The irony is that Lee didn't go to her own senior prom.

"We were actually shooting 'Prom Pact' when my high school prom happened," she laughs.

Another twist of fate?

Lee met Milo Manheim at a Disney "prom."

"Disney has these events for their actors who can't be at their proms because they're working," Lee says. "They have these prom-like parties and I actually met Milo for the first time at a Disney prom. It was a funny, full-circle moment to then make 'Prom Pact' with him."

Lee and Manheim also star together in the second season of 'Doogie Kamealoha, MD,' which debuted on March 31, the very same day as 'Prom Pact.'

The series is also an 80s throwback to the hit show Doogie Howser, MD.

It stars Lee as Lehela Kamealoha, a 16-year-old prodigy teen doctor in Hawaii.

In 'Prom Pact,' her character Mandy is doing everything she can to get into Harvard.

It just so happens that Lee is an Ivy League student in real life. She's a freshman at Columbia University.

Her next big project? Finals!
