Dove Cameron Was Afraid She'd Be Fired From 'Descendants' For This Reason

You probably never would have guessed this, but Dove Cameron is not a natural dancer.

In fact, the actress recently revealed that she was almost afraid to be a part of Descendants because Kenny Ortega was attached to the project.

“I never thought I’d get to work with someone like Kenny Ortega. He is responsible for the High School Musical movies and he’s also the director of Descendants – but I’m not a dancer at all,” she says.

“When I heard that he was attached to this movie, I said, ‘Wait, what? Kenny Ortega is attached to Descendants? You guys know I can’t dance, right?’” Dove remembers.

“I was really scared because I thought he was going to say, ‘Send Dove home. She cannot dance. She cannot be my lead.’”

Thankfully, Kenny‘s not like that at all!

“He was absolutely wonderful,” Dove added. “One of Kenny’s favourite things to do is turn someone who’s not a dancer into a dancer. I worked with him intensively to make sure that I was up to par with the rest of the cast. It was a really big education for me, but I loved every minute of it.”

Descendants 2 is out on July 21st.
