Siwa is a YouTube star, singer, and actress who got her start on the series Dance Moms.

Both stars are now appearing in this slasher film from Cinedigm, Roundtable Entertainment, and Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment. All My Friends Are Dead is shooting in Vancouver, Canada.
While Siwa is a social media sensation who is getting lots of work, she recently had to live through a real-life horror movie. Her Los Angeles home was broken into earlier this week. Siwa shared the footage on social media, writing, “We were robbed last night at 2:40(ish)AM. It was an armed robbery which is very scary. It was a REALLLLLY long night on the phone with my security, family, and LAPD.” Siwa has definitely had a lot to deal with this year between the break-in, relationship troubles, and a feud with Candace Cameron-Bure.
