Over the years we have seen Julianne Hough grow into a beautiful young woman, first making a name for herself as one of the dancers on the hit television series Dancing With The Stars, along with her brother Derek Hough. Since then, Julianne has gone on to enjoy a fairly successful acting career, with a number of movie credits under her belt.
It is hard to believe that Julianne Hough is still only 25 years old, as she seems to have been in the entertainment industry forever, and it has been a long and hard road to the success that Julianne is enjoying now. The talented dancer and actress has opened up about her early days, before she became famous, and things were a lot different back then.
When Julianne Hough was just 10 years old, she and her brother Derek Hough, who was 13 at the time, left their family home in Utah, along with their parents and their three older sisters, and headed off to London, where they joined the prestigious dance school, Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. Julianne has now reminisced about those days.
Hough was speaking exclusively to PEOPLE, when she remembered, "I remember one of my first days there I got off at the wrong train station. I was just standing there thinking, 'Where am I?'"
As well as struggling with finding her way around London and battling with homesickness, Julianne Hough also felt the pressure of having to forget about the fact the she was only a child and try to focus on her life in a mature world. Julianne says that one of her biggest regrets is the fact that she does not have any cute pictures of herself from her child, due to the amount of make-up and spray tan she had to use.
Hough added, "When I look back, I think it’s so sad I have no pictures of me with a cute, bare, 10-year-old face."
The hard work and sacrifices all paid off in the end and now, not only is Julianne Hough one of the most recognisable dancers in the world but she is also a very recognisable actress.
