Sofia Carson Talks What it's Like to Play a Villain Instead of a Princess

In a new interview, Descendants 2 star Sofia Carson opened up about what it’s like to play a villain instead of a princess — and why it’s not as black-and-white as it seems.

“I grew up dressed like a Disney princess,” she told Harper’s Bazaar, “I knew all the songs and I would sing them all day long.”

Still, she found playing a villain (she plays Evie, the Evil Queen’s daughter in Descendants 2) to be an interesting challenge, especially because it made her recognize that there’s good and bad in everyone.

“It’s cool because in playing Evie, a villain, you learn that really people aren’t bad; they make bad decisions or bad choices,” Sofia explained. “The story of the Villain Kids is that they can choose to be good. That’s the beauty about it. They are so human and they’ve made their mistakes and they continue to make mistakes; but they teach us all that matters at the end of the day is loving yourself and never being ashamed.”

Descendants 2 is such a cool film because it highlights the humanity even in “villains,” and the reality that, as humans, we have the power to decide who we are going to be.

Will The 'Descendants 2' Cast Be on 'Dancing With The Stars' For Movie Night Next Week?

Will The 'Descendants 2' Cast Be on 'Dancing With The Stars' For Movie Night Next Week?

Witney Carson just maybe spilled something big — and we’re kind of not mad about it.

The Dancing With the Stars pro shared a snap of her with Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson and Cameron Boyce during some dance rehearsals today in Los Angeles and the first thing we thought of was the cast performing on the show!

We mean, it’s not unheard of — the Teen Beach 2 movie cast performed on the show back in season 20 for movie night — or this could just mean Witney will be joining the cast on stage for the RDMAs this weekend.

Either way, we are so here for it!

Next week’s movie night on DWTS will have all the teams dancing to a specific movie genre.
