There Was Almost a Chance Sofia Carson Wouldn't Have Been In 'Descendants'

Sofia Carson revealed that there was almost a chance that she wasn’t in the Descendants movies!

In a new interview on Chicks In The Office, the 27-year-old Songbird actress shared that after doing a guest star spot on Austin & Ally, she had an audition for another Disney Channel series, and if she got that role, she couldn’t have been able to make it to her audition for Descendants.

“That opened the door to everything, and it actually happened shortly after Austin & Ally, because I remember I shot Austin & Ally over the summer, and I think my first audition for Descendants was that fall,” Sofia said. “Disney Channel, the casting world had already kind of gotten to know me a little bit, but when I was up for my first role for Descendants, I didn’t get it.

“It was not until I think February, I was up for a role on Liv and Maddie, another guest starring role, and I got sick,” she continued. “And for some reason, I couldn’t do the guest starring role, and that was the reason I was able to go to the Descendants callback.”

“It was this whole weird thing that have I gotten the Liv and Maddie role, I wouldn’t have been able to be cast as Evie.”

We are so glad that Sofia was able to make her Descendants callback!!

Dove Cameron Spills On How They Filmed 'Liv & Maddie'

Dove Cameron is revealing some things about Liv & Maddie that you may have never known!

In a recent interview, the 23-year-old dished on the difficult part of filming the first season, as well as how they pulled off her playing twin characters.

“I’ve never tried to play twins before. It was complicated at first. In the first season it was complicated because we still had the same amount of time as every other sitcom. On the Disney lot, we had three days of rehearsal and two days of filming. And we had to do everything twice, so that was a little bit crazy,” Dove said. “Disney was like, ‘You have three days to film, that’s totally fine.’ Then they asked us to do it once in two days, because it’s obviously way less expensive. And they were like, ‘Oh you can do it. Do it like that forever!’ It was SO hard for the first season, then we figured it out. Then it was second nature.”

She also dished how they pulled it off playing two roles – she had two body doubles!

“You get a body double, who’s your height, your general body size, and then we all wore wigs because everybody’s hair looks different. Even if you have the same hair color, your hair texture and length,” Dove added. “Whenever I was Maddie, my body double Emmy would play Liv, and then when I was Liv, my body double Shelby would play Maddie. Whenever you see me on camera, it’s always me, it’s never another girl. But if you see me hugging somebody, that’s a body double. It’s a long story, camera trickery.”
