The 15-year-old Shake It Up star chatted about his character Deuce, looking beyond Disney and his music. Check it:
On looking up to Will Smith: “If I was to model my career after anyone it would definitely be Will Smith, because every role he does is so different from the last, he’s such a diverse actor, and that’s kind of what I aspire to be. I want to be very diverse actor, someone who can do one thing in one move and then do something completely different in the next.”
On Shake It Up: “There’s going to be a lot more of Deuce, that’s for sure. There s a lot of fun cool stuff, a lot of Deuce and Dina stuff.”
On balancing a music and acting career: “I feel like at times, I’m going to have to focus one more than the other, just because of the way things are scheduled out specially if I was going to be on a tour or what not. But, I will try to give equal attention to both my singing career and my acting career at the same time because I feel like they’re both important to me and they are both something that I wanted to grow up and continue doing for a long time, so I feel like I have to treat it like they’re both one career.”
