Get To Know 'Upside-Down Magic' Star Izabela Rose! (Exclusive)

Izabela Rose is soon to be a major Disney star!

The teen actress will be starring in the brand new Disney Channel Original Movie Upside-Down Magic, which premieres TONIGHT (July 31).

Izabela stars as Nory, whose unconventional powers land her in a class for those with wonky, or “upside-down,” magic at the Sage Academy for Magical Studies.

Undaunted, Nory sets out to prove that that upside-down magic can be just as powerful as right-side-up.

JJJ caught up with Izabela (virtually, of course!) to get the scoop on her first movie, and we also got to know more about the rising star.

“It was truly a dream come true! Being able to walk on set every day, and work with such a talented cast and crew was so inspiring,” she told us about this being her first movie. “Seeing the magical sets was also so special with this movie. It proved to me that hard work really does pay off.”

She also dished on what she’s most excited for fans to see!

“There is so much magic in this movie, and I am really excited for the fans to get more familiar with each character’s special abilities!” Izabela said. “At Sage Academy every student displays one from these five different categories of magic: Flyers, Fuzzies, Flickers, Fluxers or Flares. My character, Nory, is a Fluxer, so she can turn into animals! Reina (Siena Agudong) is a Flare, and she can manipulate fire. Andres (Max Torina) is a Flyer so he can fly. Fuzzies can talk to animals. And Pepper (Alison Fernandez) is a Flicker, so she can move objects with her hands without touching them.”

“It is amazing to see how each character uses their magic, and also what it means when some of the students have Upside-Down Magic. I can’t wait for everyone to learn more about that soon!” she added.

Tune in to catch Izabela and everyone else in Upside-Down Magic TONIGHT (July 31) at 8pm ET/PT on Disney Channel!

Get To Know 'The Boys' & 'Big Little Lies' Actor Cameron Crovetti With 10 Fun Facts!

Get To Know 'The Boys' & 'Big Little Lies' Actor Cameron Crovetti With 10 Fun Facts!

You’re about to see a lot more of Cameron Crovetti!

The young actor can currently be seen in three big shows – Big Little Lies, Dear John and The Boys.

It was just recently announced that The Boys has been renewed for a third season on Prime Video, almost two months before season two premieres!

In The Boys, Cameron plays The Homelander’s son, Ryan Butcher. In season two of Dear John, he portrays Ryan Broderick, and in Big Little Lies, he stars as Josh Wright, one of Nicole Kidman’s twin sons.

When he’s not acting, Cameron and his twin brother Nicholas are training for the Olympics and competing in men’s gymnastics!

Get to know Cameron Crovetti and check out his 10 Fun Facts below!

  • 1. Most people know I have an identical twin brother. But what most people don’t know is that I am the older twin by 18 minutes. I was born first, and the nurse swaddled me up, and I waited for my brother. What took Nick so long to be born was he had his arm up and over his head. The doctor finally got my brother to come out, and he came out screaming while I looked on smiling. We were huge babies. I was 7 pounds, and he was 7 pounds, 9 ounces. But now I am an inch taller and weigh five pounds more than him.
  • 2. My brother and I are best friends. Twins share a special bond, and my brother and I are no exception. When we were infants, my mom told me a story about the time Nick was sick. I would not leave his side. I sat next to him the entire time until he got better. When we were born, the nurses put us in those bins that they put infants in when they are first born. My mom had expected them to keep us together in one bin, but the nurses separated us. Nick‘s temperature dropped, and he couldn’t regulate his body temperature. The nurses came into my mom’s room to tell her there was a problem. My mom demanded they put us in one bin wrapped up together. Within minutes of us being back together, Nick was able to regulate his body temperature to mine, and he was fine.
  • 3. I love to bake, and my favorite dish is this amazing sweet potato casserole that I basically make every week.
  • 4. I love horror films. I have a ton of original movie posters in my room, like JAWS. I asked my mom for an original The Shining poster last Christmas. In fourth grade, I read “The Shining,” and my teacher told me I could not bring it to class because it was way beyond my grade level. I still have not gotten that Shining poster, but now that I am older, I can read “The Shining” in class. lol
  • 5. My brother was the “choker” in Big Little Lies, not me, but fun fact, Ivy George who plays ‘Amabella,’ is one of our best friends. We go on vacation with her family, and they are actually staying at our house for two weeks while I am writing this.

Get to Know Anais Lee with 10 Fun Facts!

Get to Know Anais Lee with 10 Fun Facts!

Anais Lee is definitely one to watch!

The 13-year-old actress can currently be seen in the new Netflix series The Baby-Sitters Club.

Anais plays the role of Jessi Ramsey in the two-part “Hello, Camp Moosehead!”

Though Jessi is only in two episodes in season one, executive producer Rachel Shukert dished on the importance of the character, and the potential of a bigger role in future seasons.

“I think it will look a lot the way that the books do because they come in later in the [story]. That’s something that I always liked about Mallory and Jessi, is that the first relationship that you have, especially with people that are a little bit older than you are, where you can idolize them and hope they think that you’re cool enough and there’s always a little bit of a drive to survive, is an interesting thing to explore,” she told ET.

“I also think that Jessi is an interesting character because she’s someone who is so focused on ballet — the way that an athlete is. That’s a different kind of character than we’ve seen often, somebody who really has the eye on the prize,” Rachel added. “I think both of those characters are interesting to explore, especially with each other and just the way they fit into the larger picture of the club, which will be a big part of future seasons, should we be so lucky to get one.”

You may also recognize Anais from playing the younger version of Yara Shahidi in The Sun Is Also a Star.

  • 4. I have a dog named Emerald. She is a Shih Tzu and Mirabelle and I love to dress her in bows and sweaters.
  • 5. I love to travel! Almost every year my family and I go on vacation either on a cruise, a road trip, or somewhere fun. I love to see new places and learn about the culture in the places I go.
