What is She Known For? Here Are The Facts
Simply put, Shelby is known for three things. She’s a dancer, a voice actress, and an actress. Before she stormed into the limelight as an actress, Shelby Rabara earned money as a dancer; a talent that took her place and also gave her the platform to show her versatility both on stage and on screen.
Filipino-American beauty has also appeared in a variety of television series, commercials, and films. She made her acting debut in 2005 in Mike Schiff and Bill Martin’s drama series Grounded for Life.

The truth is that in the few years she has spent in Hollywood, Rabara has transformed herself from a debut actress to one of the fastest-growing actresses in the world. A talented dancer and actress, she has worked wonders in the film industry.
In addition, her appearances in several commercials have helped her to gain even more experience. Of all her roles in films, feature films, and television series, she is best known for her performance as the narrator of Peridot in Steven Universe, an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network.
You may wonder how the Filipino-American star has managed to live up to responsibilities and expectations both in her career and in her family. The secret is that she married her biggest fan, a man who would not stop until he saw her success and became a Hollywood megastar.
