Dove Cameron hangs out with Crash (of Crash & Bernstein) in Times Square, New York City earlier this week.
JJJ recently caught up with the 16-year-old actress and new star of Disney Channel where we got to know all about her name, style and upcoming projects. Check it:
JJJ: How did you get your name?
Dove Cameron: My mother and father loved Picasso and he named his daughter Paloma, and that means “dove” in Spanish.
JJJ: What can you tell us about filming Cloud 9?
DC: It was my first film experience but I honestly couldn’t have had a better one. The whole cast and crew was absolutely perfect and tremendous. Everyone was lovely. The whole cast fell in love with each other in the first week. We were inseparable. We still are. We made lifelong relationships. And it was definitely the most rowdy, loud set to be on. We were constantly goofing around. There wasn’t like a serious moment. We were ridiculous.

JJJ: What was it like working with Ashley Tisdale? Did you learn anything from her?
DC: I actually didn’t get to spend too much time with her. But if anything, I learned that the people at the top are always the kindest.
JJJ: What can you tell us about your upcoming show?
DC: It’s called Liv & Maddie and it’s about two identical twins. Liv has been sort of off filming her huge hit series called Sing it Loud. And while she’s been building a name for herself in L.A., her twin sister Maddie has been cultivating a reputation in her hometown of Wisconsin as the town’s local basketball star. So her popularity is on a much smaller scale and that all gets turned upside down when Liv shows up and comes back to town. She becomes the big fish in a small pond again.
JJJ: Have you started filming?
DC: We haven’t started shooting yet. I just started basketball training. I’m 5’2 and I’m a very small person, so basically I’m dunking already. I am Michael Jordan. But no, it’s been incredible. Disney found me a really great coach.
JJJ: How would you describe your style?
DC: Strange. I do this thing called up-cycling where I wear a lot of dresses from the 50s and most of my clothing comes from thrift shops or vintage stores. And if I find something I really love and it doesn’t quite fit me, I’ll adapt it to fit me. So most of my outfits and dresses are Frankenstein creations. I love really outrageous stuff, really special, unique things.
