Rowan Blanchard Reveals She Almost Didn't Say Yes to 'Girl Meets World'

Rowan Blanchard Reveals She Almost Didn't Say Yes to 'Girl Meets World'

Rowan Blanchard graces the cover of Net-A-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit, and is opening up about her time on Disney, bringing a voice to young adults, feminism and more.

The biggest revelation from her interview though is that she almost passed on the role of Riley Matthews on Girl Meets World, the daughter of Cory and Topanga.

“My agent sent over Girl Meets World. I was like, ‘I will not do Disney ever in my life,’” she shared. “I watched Disney, but I thought that if you wanted to be a serious film actress then you couldn’t be a Disney actress.”

Rowan continues, “Which is partially true – I do have to work harder to be taken seriously.”

Thankfully, she did accept the role, but it didn’t come without it’s challenges.

The series, which was cancelled after only three seasons, started talking about serious issues and Rowan was proud to be a part of that.

“We started thinking about what it could be like if we made this show that was funny for kids, but was also teaching them something,” she says. “Then, when I started discovering activism, I think it made the show that much better, because we were really getting into these topics, having conversations… If I didn’t like something I would talk to [the writers] about it.”

Rowan adds, “It was nice to feel heard and to be respected in a way that I didn’t necessarily feel on a lot of sets that I’d worked on previously.”

Brenda Song Doesn't Feel Held Back By Her Disney Roots

Brenda Song Doesn't Feel Held Back By Her Disney Roots

Brenda Song stuns in this hot new feature for Kode magazine.

The Angry Angel star opened up about her Disney roots, and instead of saying she was ready to leave them in the dust like many others, she’s very thankful.

“I’m so grateful for the opportunities Disney gave me,” Brenda shared, who starred in a handful of DCOMs as well as The Suite Life shows. “They believed always believed in me and I’m so thankful.”

She adds, “Being an actor is difficult, period. There are obviously going to be ups and downs and for us child actors, that’s all being somewhat recorded because you essentially grow up on TV. I think as long as you keep working on your craft and focus on the work, that’s all that matters.”

Ross Lynch Wanted His Fans To Be 'Shocked' By 'My Friend Dahmer' Role

Ross Lynch Wanted His Fans To Be 'Shocked' By 'My Friend Dahmer' Role

We probably won’t see Ross Lynch in any roles like Austin Moon anytime soon, or ever again, actually.

Speaking with W Magazine, the actor/musician opened up about his reasoning for signing on for his newest role in My Friend Dahmer — and it’s exactly what you think.

“I liked the fact that people were going to be shocked by it,” Ross shared. “If you would have told me five years ago that I would be playing a serial killer right now, I’d be like, No way in h***.”

While he didn’t handpick the role for himself, portraying a young Jeffrey Dahmer was “intentional.”

He adds that he still sympathizes with the serial killer, who died before he was born.

“Oh, definitely,” Ross adds. “You’ve got to empathize with every character you play. But when I first read the script, what shocked me the most is that by the end of it, I was sad, really, for all parties.”

My Friend Dahmer is now showing in limited theaters across the country.

Emily Bett Rickards Says Felicity Smoak Has Taught Her How To Handle Life

Emily Bett Rickards stuns in a simple and striking shoot with Vulkan magazine.

In her interview, the Arrow actress opened up about playing Felicity Smoak on the series.

“Felicity is a very hopeful person,” Emily says. “Even after all the evil she’s faced and those who have been hurt around her, she still keeps fighting. Keeps finding a new way to work through and always looking up. She stays fresh. She teaches me.”

Emily also opened up about how much Felicity has grown on the long-running show.

“I think inherently she will always be the girl that is more comfortable hiding behind the screen,” she shared. “I don’t think she ever thought she would deliver a public speech or any speech or stand on any stage of sorts…but here she is.”

Zendaya Pulled Out All the Stops For Her Very First Job with Kidz Bop

Zendaya Pulled Out All the Stops For Her Very First Job with Kidz Bop

Zendaya rocks a multi-colored sequin jacket on in this hot shot from FASHION Magazine’s Winter 2018 issue.

The Greatest Showman actress looked back at one of her first jobs with Kidz Bop with the glossy, recalling that she upped her game to book the role.

“It was one of my first jobs, and all the kids could do these crazy things,” she recalled. “They could do flips or spins or something cool, right? And I just couldn’t. I was a normal dancer. I had charisma, but I could only dance.”

But Zendaya didn’t want to be just a normal dancer any more — instead, she brought out all the stops.

“I remember all these kids were trying to be sick, and I was like ‘I gotta step it up a notch because these kids are really killing it.’ For some reason, I decided to do a front flip. Never did one before in my life, other than inside my living room playing around.”

Zendaya adds, “Thank God I landed it! It could have been terrible, but it ended up working.”

Fashion magazine’s winter issue hits Canadian newsstands on November 20th and is in select Barnes and Nobles in the U.S. on December 5th.

Landry Bender Thinks There Should Be a 'Monsters Inc' Animated Series

Landry Bender Thinks There Should Be a 'Monsters Inc' Animated Series

Most of us know Landry Bender either from Best Friends Whenever or from The Sitter, but did you know she’s also one of the voices on The Lion Guard?

“The most challenging part is probably the random noises that you have to do,” she told Vulkan magazine about her role as Rafiki’s apprentice.

Landry adds, “I know it sounds funny, but when my character has to run really fast, or climb a wall, or jump up and down, I have to give them the strangest noises and it feels ridiculous.”

Speaking of animated series based off movies, Landry opened up our eyes to one that we would watch all the time — Monsters, Inc.!

“I’ve always loved Monster’s Inc. I still have my ‘Boo’ doll I got for my second birthday!” she recalls. “I know it’s probably considered Pixar, but I’ve always loved it so I’d love for a series to be created from that film.”

Consider us already addicted to it.
