On April 18, teen star Moises Arias turns 18 years old. Here's what you need to know about the familiar face from shows like "The Middle" and "The Wizards of Waverly Place."

It All Started with 'Hannah Montana'

Arias joined the cast of "Hannah Montana" when he was just ten years old. After serving as a recurring guest as Rico on season one of the show, he became a regular when the series returned the following year. While he doesn't get to see Miley Cyrus and the rest of the gang on a daily basis any more, there is one former castmate who he crosses paths with. Jason Earles, who played Hannah's brother Jackson Stewart, co-stars with Moises' real life brother Mateo on "Kickin' It."

The Arias Boyz Were Behind Moiswashere

Speaking of his brother Mateo, Moises and his famous sibling both have an interest in filmmaking from behind the camera as well. Although they haven't posted a new video in a couple of years, the Arias Boyz' have ten clips on YouTube under the username Moiswashere, including their own remake of "Stanky Leg" and a short film they wrote and directed called "The Hustle." They're both so busy now on their individual projects that they seem to have lost steam on their collaboration but who knows what the future holds.

Moises Ruled!

While he was working on "Hannah Montana" Arias also did double duty on the Disney XD original short series "Moises Rules!" On the unscripted sports show, Moises would go toe-to-toe with kids in quasi-athletic challenges like a finger football smackdown and a super water slide face off.

He Stole Joe Jonas' Girl

A music fan himself, Arias has appeared in videos for a number of other artists including Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. He can be seen in the short of the Jonas' Brothers song "SOS" stealing Joe Jonas' girl.

He's More Than Just a Pretty Face

Arias has done a lot of voice over work lately. He's been the faceless talent behind Olly on "Dive Olly Dive!," Fred on "Phineas and Ferb," Zane in "Astro Boy" and Spiller in the U.S. version of "The Secret World of Arrietty." He'll be going back into the recording booth soon for the "Despicable Me" sequel.

He'll Play a Part in 'Ender's Game'

His next big project is the feature film "Ender's Game," which is based on the science fiction book by Orson Scott Card. He'll appear as Bonzo with big name stars like Harrison Ford, Viola Davis and Ben Kingsley. Fellow teen celebs Asa Butterfield from "Hugo" and Abigail Breslin from "Little Miss Sunshine" also star in the movie.

"Ender's Game" is scheduled for release of November 1, 2013.
