“We’re super in love and stuff,” Dove told Access Hollywood.

“I think it would be easy to collaborate with him again,” she shared, adding, “Professional, personal, he’s the love of my life so I’m good not working with him again too.”

“I think when you are an artist who just loves what they do, because that’s something that I love so much about him – he’s not like an actor, he’s not like celebrity,” Dove continued. “And I try to stay away from that as well. And you just kind of only do projects that makes your heart beat.”

Dove recently told us that the rest of the Descendants 2 cast totally saw the duo’s chemistry from the beginning – even though they didn’t!

Thomas Doherty Teases His Role in 'High Strung 2' With RAW

Thomas Doherty Teases His Role in 'High Strung 2' With RAW

Thomas Doherty is far away in Romania right now filming the sequel to High Strung — but just before he made the trip, he dished all about his new role to RAW.

“I did three years of musical theater training at Edinburgh, where I went to college,” the Scottish-born actor confesses to the online mag.

He continues, “I’ve done a lot of classes, and worked with a lot of choreographers. I’ve been exposed to a lot of choreographers, so I’m kind of gathering it all together and putting into the character of Zander.”


Zander is actually the choreographer himself in the flick.

“Zander is a bit of an older character so I have got to kind of be very conscious of that,” Thomas says. “The physicality, and the way I speak, the way I act, the way I look. So I take it on, that’s my job, but yeah that’s the challenges.”

Thomas also opened up about one of the biggest challenges that will be facing him — being so far away from everyone.

“I’d probably say being in a different part of the world,” he says. “We’re filming in Romania, which will be really cool but kind of getting used to a different culture, a different way of living….I’m going to miss my family and my girlfriend.”

For more Thomas, head to RAW now!

Thomas Doherty Calls Zac Efron Comparisons 'Flattering' But Wants To Go On His Own Journey

Thomas Doherty Calls Zac Efron Comparisons 'Flattering' But Wants To Go On His Own Journey

Thomas Doherty is going to definitely be a household name after Descendants 2 premieres on Friday.

We mean, how could you resist that smile and the charming Scottish accent?

In a recent video interview, Thomas opened up to some of the comparisons between him and Zac Efron, who got a major boost from the High School Musical movies.

“I think that’s quite cool actually,” Thomas says. “This time two years ago, I wasn’t even doing this. I was still at college and stuff. Now, I have so many amazing opportunities. I have The Lodge season two and Descendants 2.”

He adds, “He’s a very talented individual, obviously. He’s had a wonderful career himself.”

However, while Thomas appreciates the comparisons, he isn’t looking to be the next coming of Zac at all.

“I don’t like to compare myself to anyone,” he says. “I think it’s important to go on your own journey and focus on yourself.”

We knew the original cast of Descendants was close, but the D2 additions became part of the family as well.

We recently caught up with Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson to talk about what it was like working with newbies Thomas Doherty, China Anne McClain, and Dylan Playfair.

We also talked to China about coming into the successful franchise!

“It was a little bit overwhelming at times, to be honest. The sets are so massive and unique. You haven’t really seen anything like it. With Uma’s pirate ship, and all of these amazing sets, and Thomas and Dylan were so excited as well,” China told us. “It was great. The first movie was so good, and the whole cast welcomed me. I felt like I was family after the first day.”

“It’s been so special to grow our family,” Sofia said. “And they all feel like long-lost brothers and sisters who were always part of the family. China is amazing. She’s a force to be reckoned with and she did an incredible job bringing Uma to life.”

“We met our first day, but a month before shooting, we do bootcamp where we learn how to sword-fight, we learn choreography, we work with Kenny [Ortega, the director] on our character development,” she continued. “I met China when she was recording ‘What’s My Name?’” I met Dylan and Thomas and everyone in our first day of rehearsal. You bond pretty quickly in those rehearsals because you’re there for hours and hours of the day.”

Dylan was completely new to me. He’s still one of my favorite people on the planet,” Dove told JJJ. “He’s incredibly intelligent, so if you made that character really intelligent, that would be Dylan. He’s so happy-go-lucky. He’s so sunny.”

China and I have known each other for quite some time,” she said. “I feel like it’s sort of a written rule that all the Disney girls have to cross paths. We actually met at a bunch of auditions. So I was really excited to be working together.”

As for her real-life boyfriend, Dove told us, “And then Thomas and I are obviously dating [she shows us a cute pic of them as her phone background]. That was the best. It was amazing to be able to work with them.”

And this cast spent a lot of time together off-screen too.

“We were always together. There’s this restaurant, we’d go there every night,” China said. “We went there so much that Thomas noticed when they changed one little thing on the menu. It was super fun. Or we would spend time in someone’s hotel room, and we’d play music, have our guitars, and sing and dance. It was really fun.”

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

Descendants' Dove Cameron Explains How Mal Broke Harry's Heart (Exclusive)

Descendants' Dove Cameron Explains How Mal Broke Harry's Heart (Exclusive)

Dove Cameron is giving us a little backstory before the premiere of Descendants 2.

She and director Kenny Ortega, along with China Anne McClain and Thomas Doherty, decided on the reason behind Uma and Mal’s rivalry – and Harry’s very involved.

“They have a huge history. China‘s character Uma, and Mal, were sort of like Mal and Evie (Sofia Carson) when they were younger,” Dove told us. “They were good friends growing up. Mal actually dated Harry Hook before dating Ben (Mitchell Hope). So that was each of their first loves, which is kind of funny. She was the baddest girl and he was the baddest guy. It was sort of like a Johnny [Depp] and Winona [Ryder] thing. They were madly in love.”

“Some bad stuff went on with Uma and Mal. It was a big rivalry,” she explained. “We never really decided what that was, but basically, Mal disowned Uma and was like, ‘You can’t hang with me. You’re not good enough.’ Condemning her. She was like, ‘You’ll never be as bad as me’ and she kicked her out, and replaced her with Evie. So Uma has all this animosity toward her.”

“And then, Mal broke Harry’s heart,” Dove said. “We also decided that they got secret hook tattoos, and Thomas and I would draw them under our gloves every day. We were so into the backstory (laughs). Kenny would come up to us and be like, ‘Do you guys have the hook tattoos?’ And we’re like, ‘Yeah, Kenny. Every day.’ And he was like, ‘OK, good. Good.’ So funny (laughs). And when Mal broke Harry’s heart, he joined Uma’s gang. That’s why he hates Mal so much. He’s like a broken man because of that.”

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

Kenny Ortega Says You'll Fall In Love With Uma's Gang of Pirates in 'Descendants 2'

China Anne McClain, Dylan Playfair and Thomas Doherty are about to become your favorite pirates ever.

The three newcomers to the Descendants family star as Uma, Gil and Harry in the upcoming Descendants 2 and word on the street has it that they’re incredible — just take director Kenny Ortega‘s word for it.

“And as great as it was to land China – who’s this amazing triple threat: actress, singer, dancer – and then see what she could do with the character of Uma,” Kenny boasted in a new interview with Huffington Post.

“…I think that ‘Descendants’ fans are also going to get a big kick out of Uma’s two lieutenants: Harry, Captain Hook’s son played by Thomas Doherty, this terrific young actor from Scotland. We’ve also got Dylan Playfair, who does a great job as Gil, the son of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.”

Get ready Descendants fans, because “these three really add to the fun of this film.”

Descendants 2 will premiere on Friday, July 21st.
