Thomas Doherty Once Wanted To Become A Pro Soccer Player

Thomas Doherty Once Wanted To Become A Pro Soccer Player

We couldn’t quite imagine Descendants 2 without Thomas Doherty in it as Hook, yet, acting wasn’t the plan at all for him.

Growing up, the 22-year-old Scottish actor revealed that it was once his dream to become a “professional footballer” aka soccer player.

In fact, he was quite good and his brother actually landed a soccer scholarship in America, but Thomas just couldn’t quite get there. But that’s okay, because he turned to acting.

“While I was seen as a football player, no-one was aware I also did musical theatre,” Thomas shared in a new interview. “I’d have my books and packed lunch at the top of my bag but at the bottom, I’d hide my tap shoes.”

Thomas continues that “on Saturdays, I’d go to musical theatre from nine ’till one and then rush off to the game. Then during the week, I’d turn up for musical theatre with my knees all cut and bruised. It was all a bit Billy Elliott. But I loved both.”

He also opens up about while he loved both, he did get teased more for loving musical theater.

“Any 13-year-old boy who wears leotard and tights two days a week is going to get slagged off,” he shared, grinning. “Young boys were wary of acting. There was a sense it was all a bit effeminate, and I’d get teased.”

Now, he brushes it off, looking at his true friends who were always there.

“It’s part of the banter, and my friends were fantastic and so supportive when it came to seeing my shows.”

Descendants 2 will premiere in the UK, tomorrow, Friday, October 20th.

Thomas Doherty Auditioned For 'Descendants 2' With His Scottish Accent

Thomas Doherty Auditioned For 'Descendants 2' With His Scottish Accent

One of the most charming things about Thomas Doherty is his accent, can we all agree on that?

The Scottish-born actor chose to use his real accent for his Descendants 2 audition, instead of the American one that was put on the notice.

“It was a global audition with people from all over the world, including many Americans, so I decided to do something different,” he admits in a new interview with the Scottish Daily Record. “I knew Kenny Ortega was directing it and wanted to get his attention one way or another.”

And it worked, too!

“A day later, I got a call from California and it was Kenny,” Thomas adds. “He said that he had loved the performance and wanted to meet me. I thought the Scottish accent would be cutting, raw and almost aggressive, especially compared to an American accent. I also thought it would be a good choice for the character, as Hook’s son.”

Thomas also opens up about working on the movie, where he met his girlfriend, Dove Cameron.

“It’s definitely up there with one of the best experiences I’ve had,” he says. “I get to play a dancing, rapping pirate. I had so much fun. I got to be manic, crazy, angry, then I got to be happy, charming, sexy and all inbetween. It was brilliant.”

He, along with many other Descendants 2 stars are hoping for another one as well.

“Working with Kenny and being directed by him was an incredible experience and hopefully I’ll get to work with him again if there’s a third.”

Descendants 2 will premiere this Friday, on Disney Channel in Scotland.

Dove Cameron fans are waiting with bated breath for her debut single, “Talks About,” but until then, we can still listen to her angelic vocals.

The former Liv & Maddie star posted an Instagram video yesterday singing in an empty bathroom, and her voice sounds incredible.

“I cheated myself like I knew I would,” she sings, covering the late Amy Winehouse‘s “You Know I’m No Good.”

“when you find dem acoustics,” Dove captioned the video.

Thomas Doherty crashes her private performance with some jazz sounds from outside the bathroom walls.

“That’s Tommy harmonizing,” Dove laughs. “Tommy playing the horn solo.”

Dove Cameron & Thomas Doherty Have an Adorable Lipstick Mishap

Dove Cameron & Thomas Doherty Have an Adorable Lipstick Mishap

Could these two be any cuter?!

It’s a rhetorical question, of course: in our humble opinions Descendants 2 stars Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty are 2017′s most over-the-top adorable couple. The competition isn’t even close.

Thomas proved this yet again yesterday by uploading a selfie to Instagram of the two of them with red lipstick all over their faces.

Dove has red splotched below her chin and Thomas‘ entire lips are as red as hers — as well as part of his cheek.

“kissing in the dark,” he captioned.

Excuse us. We need a minute; this might be even cuter than the matching sun tattoos.

kissing in the dark ????

This is 'Descendants 2' Star Thomas Doherty's Weirdest Habit

This is 'Descendants 2' Star Thomas Doherty's Weirdest Habit

Thomas Doherty opens up about his weirdest habit in a new interview, and it’s so cute it will make you smile.

“I always tap dance at a bus stop or on the underground/subway,” the Descendants 2 actor revealed to TigerBeat.

That definitely delivers as a weird habit, but we can’t say it isn’t adorable.

It also isn’t totally surprising, considering he saw La La Land in theaters seven times! (Dove loves it too, so we’re guessing they probably saw it together at least a few of those times.)

If anyone ever sees someone who bares a resemblance to Thomas tap dancing at a bus stop, know that it’s probably him.

Dove Cameron & Thomas Doherty Have Matching Sun Tattoos!

Dove Cameron & Thomas Doherty Have Matching Sun Tattoos!

Dove Cameron revealed her tiny sun tattoo at the end of last year but it looks like someone special has the same one!

It was recently revealed that Dove‘s boyfriend Thomas Doherty has the same exact tattoo on his leg!

In an Instagram story, Thomas showed his legs while wearing a pair of shorts and fans immediately noticed the sun tat on his right knee. How cute!

We love that Dove and Thomas have matching ink and it looks like there may be more tattoos to come!

Last week, Dove took to Twitter to ask fans if they had any ideas for tiny tats relating to Mal, her character from Descendants, and they had some great suggestions!

Check out Dove and Thomas‘ matching tattoos below…
