4 Things You Definitely Didn't Know About 'Famous in Love's Charlie DePew

4 Things You Definitely Didn't Know About 'Famous in Love's Charlie DePew

Charlie DePew is just one of the hot new stars in Freeform’s Famous in Love.

The actor plays Jake Salt, one of Paige’s BFFs, who are there to keep her grounded while she’s experiencing a complete fairytale.

In Charlie‘s new interview with NKD mag, we learned four things about him that truly surprised us.

Check them out below:

  • – He’s starred with Bella Thorne before
  • It’s true! Charlie was a guest star on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up! in the pilot episode. As we all know, Bella starred as Cece in the show.

    “That was in the seventh grade,” he says. “Who knew I would be working with Bella again?”

  • – He started an Instagram advertising company
  • Along with a few friends, Charlie founded Respark, a company that specializes in social media promotion and app development.

    “My buddies and I started managing themed Instagram accounts our senior year [in high school] and we wanted to change the game of advertising,” he reveals. “That’s what Respark does. We also came up with a new product that’s still in development but will hopefully be out in June.”

    The app, called Toy Box, will be a platform where you’ll be able to play integrated games for prizes and freebies. Cool!

  • – He only landed the role of Jake after a casting shakeup
  • When the show was first casting, he went in for the role, but didn’t end up getting a part. But then, after the show shot the pilot, the role of Jake needed to be recast.

    “Three weeks into their new casting call, they had already seen 1,500+ different guys. They ended up calling me said they wanted me back for a studio test which actually turned out to be a chemistry read with Bella. The next night, I was set to chemistry read with Carter [Jenkins] and things did not go well. At all. I walked out of the room feeling super defeated but the casting director ran out and asked me to come back because she thought I could do better.”

    Good thing for him (and us!) that the next time, it went much better.

  • – He was almost Archie Andrews on Riverdale
  • No, seriously.

    After he was initially passed over for Jake, Charlie had auditioned for Riverdale.

    “It was between me and KJ Apa and I think we all know how that ended up,” Charlie says. “After that, I was really ready to just step away from acting for a while; thank God I didn’t quit when I thought I would because everything worked out the way that it was meant to.”

    Paris Berelc Gets Real About Relationships in Hollywood

    Paris Berelc Gets Real About Relationships in Hollywood

    Paris Berelc got real about maintaining a relationship in Hollywood.

    In a recent interview with Kode mag, the Lab Rats: Elite Force actress opened up just a little about not only maintaining a relationship with boyfriend Jack Griffo, but with family and friends as well.

    “Maintaining a relationship is definitely tricky,” she reveals. “Not just with in a romantic way but with friends and family too.”

    “I guess the key is balance,” Paris adds. “My career is one of my top priorities but it’s also important to have fun and try to be a normal teenager.”

    She continues, “I find experiences teach you the most. Whether it’s going on a trip with your best friends or having a boyfriend. You learn about yourself and the world around you. Friends and family teach you so much about life. They both raise you in a way.”

    Danielle Campbell Has The Best Advice To Get Through A Tough Day

    Danielle Campbell Has The Best Advice To Get Through A Tough Day

    We always knew that Danielle Campbell was stunning, and her latest cover story with Ferrvor magazine, proves it even more.

    It was actually just announced that the former Originals actress joined Miranda Bailey’s comedy You Can Choose Your Family, alongside Logan Miller.

    The movie follows Philip (Miller) who, while on spring break, learns his overly protective father Frank (Jim Gaffigan) is living a double life.

    Danielle will play Allison, a high school beauty and “It” girl of her senior class.

    It kind of seems like Danielle is sitting on top of the world right now — but she’s still human, and gets bad days. So how does she get through them?

    “I’m close with my family and friends and talk with them,” she shared with the mag. “I find it’s helpful to vent and lean on those I trust.’

    Danielle also recommends a little “exercise, getting outdoors, and sometimes a glass of wine can help too.”

    FYI: Hair Stylist Jen Fassino worked her magic on Danielle for the mag, with glam by Bridget O’Donnell using Benefit Cosmetics, and styling by Apuje Kalu.

    Niall Horan Had a Grand Adventure in Southeast Asia After One Direction's Hiatus Started

    Niall Horan Had a Grand Adventure in Southeast Asia After One Direction's Hiatus Started

    After One Direction went on hiatus, the first thing that Niall Horan did was book a flight.

    Where? To Southeast Asia, of all place.

    Turns out that right after 1D‘s last appearance as a band in 2015 (has it really been that long?), Niall threw whatever he could into a backpack and headed somewhere where people wouldn’t know him, along with “two of his cousins (and one chill security guard)”, according to Billboard.

    Niall revealed in his cover story, that they had “rented scooters wherever they went, ate whatever was around, shared rooms for $20 a night and bought ­same-day flights to get to whichever place was next.”

    “[I] literally didn’t wear a shirt for three weeks [in Thailand, but in Bali] it pissed rain,” he revealed of his getaway trip.

    Niall and his cousins also went to Hanoi, Vietnam, and Boracay, in the Philippines.

    But the hotel in Boracay wasn’t the greatest: “[There were] lights flickering, cats drinking out the pool, spiders walking the wall, damp ­bedsheets, plus you’ve got the shits from the dodgy food” — but he loved every minute of it.

    Niall‘s debut solo album is due out this fall.

    Niall Horan Tells 'Billboard' That Selena Gomez is the 'Perfect Role Model'

    Niall Horan is the definition of dapper while posing by a pool for the new cover of Billboard magazine.

    The 23-year-old “Slow Hands” singer opened up to the glossy about One Direction, Selena Gomez, and Zayn. Check it:

    On Selena: “Selena is the ­perfect role model for young girls. It takes balls to go in front of the world and share your problems.”

    On 1D reunion: “When it will be, I don’t know. I ­prefer not to do it after I’m 40. I’d prefer the next few years…we haven’t even had a ­conversation about how long we think the break will be.”

    On Zayn: “Oh, pfft. I know what Zayn’s like — outspoken, and fair play to him.”

    Madison Beer Has Stars in Her Eyes For 'Schon' Mag Feature

    Madison Beer Has Stars in Her Eyes For 'Schon' Mag Feature

    Madison Beer literally shines in her new feature for Schon magazine.

    The “Dead” singer opened up about her musical aspirations in the glossy, after dropping her brand new single.

    “I love songwriting. It gives me an opportunity to be creative and pour my heart out,” she shared. “[It] has really expanded my love for music even though I didn’t think I could love it any more.”

    Music is so important to Madison that it actually “saved my life and changed it for the better. I couldn’t imagine a world without music. It’s also affected my personal life greatly since it has introduced me to people who share my passion.”

    So, what can we expect next from her music? “I’m going for anything I feel creative in that particular moment. I know that sounds weird and abstract but I listen to various genres every day so my references shift substantially. It’d mostly be Pop and R&B influenced, though.”

    Madison‘s gorgeous Schon spread was shot by photographer Angela Peterman with styling by Nicolas Bru, hair by Mateo Sifuentes and makeup by Mynxii White.

    Dove Cameron Has Two Special Connections With Sofia Carson & China Anne McClain

    Dove Cameron shines on her cover for the new issue of Girl’s Life magazine.

    The Descendants 2 star shares the cover with her two co-stars, Sofia Carson and China Anne McClain.

    In the glossy, Dove opens up about finding her way in the franchise and just how special her connection to China and Sofia is.

    There were some rough days [for me], but they had nothing to do with being on set,” Dove shared about having some personal rough days. “Descendants
    was a very transitional time for me, and Descendants 2 even more so.

    “I definitely found solace and comfort in Kenny [Ortega]. And, obviously, Thomas [Doherty]. He was a great friend to me then and is my boyfriend now,” she adds.

    Sofia, though, can always tell when I’m in a bad mood.”

    “I can tell as soon as she walks into the trailer if she’s having a bad day,” Sofia chimed in. “You are so much happier now than during Descendants,
    Dove.”

    With China, Dove admits that she’s in awe of China‘s vocals.

    “I’ve known China for a while. We both had shows on Disney Channel. And I’ve always known this: She’s one of the most incredible vocalists I have ever heard in real life. She’s beyond,” Dove says. “She is always fully present with the people she’s with, too.”
