Dove Cameron Auditioned for 'Wicked' Movie, Is Excited for Her 'Dear Friend' Ariana Grande

Dove Cameron steps out in all black for a Schmigadoon! Season 2 FYC event held at the Saban Media Center on Thursday (April 13) in North Hollywood, Calif.

The 27-year-old actress joined her co-stars Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key, Aaron Tveit, Jane Krakowski, Jaime Camil, and Tituss Burgess at the event.

While there, Dove confirmed that she did in fact audition for the role of Glinda in the upcoming Wicked movie adaptation, a role she has been fan cast for for years!

See what she said about auditioning inside…

“I definitely went out for it,” she told TheWrap. “I know that for everybody who did go out for it, it was a very long process. It was one of the longer processes I’ve been a part of.”

She is however, excited for her friend and Hairspray Live co-star Ariana Grande, who of course landed the role.

“I’m so excited for Ariana. She’s a genuinely dear friend of mine. We met when we were super young. I think she’s gonna kill it,” Dove added. “I think the whole cast is phenomenal head to toe. So, like, as a fan, I’m really, really excited to see it.”

If you recall, like Ariana, Dove has a long history with the original Broadway Glinda, Kristin Chenoweth, who she has worked with multiple times.

The two of course played mother and daughter in Descendants and Hairspray Live, and currently are co-stars on Schmigadoon!

Back in 2015, Dove even sang the Wicked duet “For Good” with Kristin, marking the first time Kristin sang Elphaba’s part in the song!
