Bizaardvark's Ethan Wacker Reveals How He Booked His Role

Do you remember those commercials you would hear on the radio or television asking you if you want to be on Disney Channel?

Well, Ethan Wacker does; and it’s actually how he got to be on the channel!

In his new feature with RAW Pages, the Bizaardvark actor opened up about how he begged his parents to let him go, not realizing it could turn into a big career move.

“I was obsessed with Disney Channel when I was 11-years-old, so I was like, ‘Yes! Dad, please! Mom, please!’ They were like, ‘No…’ but after my sister and I begged them enough, they actually did it,” Ethan shared. “We went to this open call, got called back to Los Angeles, went to this convention, met my agent and manager, and they just started sending me out on auditions.”

Eventually, Ethan booked a role on Paige and Frankie, which turned into Bizaardvark.

“The pilot was just about them, their family, their lives, and they didn’t have a a Vuuuuuuuugle channel called Bizaardvark,” he adds. “I actually played Paige’s little brother, Trey. I was a little bro for a little bit.”

After the show transformed, Ethan actually had to re-audition for Bernie.

“They kind of transformed the pilot and my character, Trey, was taken out so I had to re-audition for Bernie, so I didn’t get carried over.”

Bizaardvark returns on Tuesday, July 24th on Disney Channel.
