When did little Bindi get so big? Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's adorable daughter Bindi Irwin has reemerged in the spotlight, this time as a nearly-unrecognizable, cheery 14-year-old teen.

The young actress, who is currently in Sydney to promote her upcoming flick, Return to Nim's Island, wore a short-sleeved button-up, khaki shorts and sneakers for a shoot on Monday, March 11.

Her father, a famous TV personality who made a name for himself as a wildlife expert and conservationist -- in addition to wrestling crocodiles -- died in September 2006 at the age of 44 after being pierced in the chest by a sting ray.

Bindi, however, has remained steadfast in following in her father's footsteps, venturing into TV, movies and conservation efforts.

In Return to Nim's Island, Bindi plays a wildlife-loving castaway -- previously played by Abigail Breslin opposite Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler in the original 2008 film, Nim's Island

"Nim is a little bit uppity but apart from that we are quite similar," she told Australian site Adelaide Now in a recent interview, adding that her sea lion costars were "better trained than me. They hit their mark every time."

Bindi has also previously acted in another nature-themed film -- 2010's Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove, which went straight to DVD.
