Subsequently, she was cast in ‘Every Witch Way,’ a telenovela-style Nickelodeon show, and subsequently appeared in ‘Every Witch Way: Spellbound’. She also portrayed her ‘Every Witch Way’ franchise character in ‘Talia in the Kitchen,’ another Nickelodeon program.

Ascend to Fame
Zoey Burger made her film debut as Jules Benson in the 2012 short film “Wordplay.” The short was directed by Rondell Sheridan and based on a script by Japheth Gordon and Adrien Theuer. Aubrey K. Miller, Piper Madison, and Matey Simon also starred.
Then, she was cast in Nickelodeon’s telenovela-style adolescent sitcom ‘Every Witch Way,’ which was created by Mariela Romero and Catharine Ledeboer. Paola Andino, Nick Merico, Paris Smith, Daniela Nieves, and Tyler Alvarez also starred. Gigi Rueda, portrayed by Burger, is Diego Rueda’s (Tyler Alvarez) twin sister and a correspondent for the school newspaper. She is frequently called “Miss Information.” The series was the American adaptation of the Latin American Nickelodeon series ‘Grachi.’
On January 1, 2014, the premiere of the program was met with mixed reviews. Due to Nickelodeon’s refusal to allow any of the original cast of ‘Grachi’ to appear on ‘Every Witch Way,’ fans of the original program voiced harsh criticism. Although the program was not a failure, it was never able to match the international success of ‘Grachi’. After four seasons, it was canceled, and its final episode aired on July 30, 2015.
Burger portrayed Gigi in the 2014 telefilm Every Witch Way: Spellbound and the television series Talia in the Kitchen. She portrayed Liz in the upcoming short film ‘Runaway’ and appeared in an episode of the Emmy-nominated miniseries ‘Con’.
