The 22-year-old actress opened up about moving from Disney to NBC, Undateable and social media. Check it:
On going from Good Look Charlie to NBC: “It has definitely been different working with comedians, but encouraging for improv. We do a lot of improvisation on the show, so the approach to comedy is also new. I enjoyed working on Good Luck Charlie, and now I’ve come into this new series, and it’s like a new world of comedy.”
On making music with the Undateable cast: “I think they were familiar with my background in music, yes. But also, my co-star on the show, Brent Morin, and I did a little bit of singing in an episode, and it went well and it was fun. I think they thought it’d be fun to elaborate on that and make a video, something fun and extra that people would be able to find online on the show.”
On being aware of what she posts online: “I probably do feel more self aware on what certain things I comment on online, but I think for the most part I share things about my life, whether that’s a photo of my food or an animal. I’m well aware those things are necessarily fun, but I guess that’s how I do social media; it’s not something I use to rant about things. I’m not really inhibited to post different things about my social life, because there isn’t much to hide there. I think it all comes down to me being not that wild of a person, so it doesn’t leave much to shelter.”
On what makes a person ‘undateable’: “I think [that's] someone who isn’t interested in getting to know other people. Some people just aren’t very intrigued by others and don’t have a curiosity for life, and I think that’s important.”

“I think she really wants to be liked and she wants to fit in, and that’s an interesting combination with how she won’t compromise her moral ideas of what’s right,” the 22-year-old actress spoke about her character Candace with TVLine.
Bridgit added, “She’s kind of been going along with the flow of whatever the guys say, up until the point where they start saying things about dating that she doesn’t agree with and she thinks aren’t right.”

Bridgit Mendler sits down for a talk with Meredith Vieira on The Meredith Vieira Show in New York City, airing Thursday morning (April 2).
The 22-year-old Undateable actress opened up to Meredith about her boyfriend Shane Harper and how the two, who co-starred on Good Luck Charlie together, got together.
“I don’t know. I’m not going to say it was his fault, I think we were both young, we were 16 when we met. Actually, he was 15, I’m a cougar. He’s two months younger than me, so he just turned 16. I don’t know maybe he was just too boisterous or something and I was just lame and I thought I was too good,” she explained.
Bridgit continued, “Two years later we were just in the same friend group for awhile and he wore me down. Persistence. I think chivalry should never die. I think a guy should fight for a girl and wait for a girl.”
The 22-year-old Undateable actress recently wrote her first blog for the site and updated fans on what’s coming up with her music.
“It’s getting so close to being finished I promise!” Bridgit shared about her next album. “And there are so many songs that I’m excited to share.”
She added, “Feeling a little under the weather today so I probably will just write today and track vocals tomorrow. Sorry if that was TMI, that just felt relevant. Thank you guys for being so patient for new music! I think you will really enjoy it when it FINALLY arrives.”
Bridgit Mendler swings by SiriusXM Radio to promote Undateable in New York City on Tuesday morning (March 17).
The 22-year-old actress also stopped by Huffington Post to chat about her transition from Good Luck Charlie to a more adult show.
“Honestly, whenever people say, ‘Oh, you don’t have anything tainting or tarnishing [in] your history’ … It’s just not in my nature. I’ve kind of just been going off of my gut and what feels right. There have been opportunities to push the boundaries more, but it’s just not me,” she shared.
Bridgit added, “I’m hoping that [Undateable] is the right move, and that people feel comfortable with it. I can’t judge anyone else’s choices because I’m just going what feels right for me.”
Bridgit is also pictured below with co-stars Rick Glassman, David Fynn, Bianca Kajlich, and Ron Funches and exec producer Bill Lawrence at the Samsung Studio at SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas.

Bridgit Mendler is all smiles while arriving at the HuffPo Live studios on Tuesday (March 17) in New York City.
The 22-year-old actress, who is busy promoting her show Undateable, recently opened up about what would make her “undateable.”
“That I can be shy, and I can be a big nerd,” Bridgit told TVLine.com. “I just think I’m a nerd because nerds might have lot going on in their head that they’re thinking, but they don’t know how to put it out into the world in the right away sometimes. Also, a nerd is somebody who is really into things that aren’t traditional, which I’d say is exactly what I am!”
