Disney is the place where generations of stars are born. Many of their actors and musicians have grown up into successful celebrities, making the company a legendary powerhouse for finding new stars. Starting with the Mickey Mouse Club, the variety TV show that aired from 1955 until 1996, Disney is no stranger to the habit of generating new batches of talent. Previous Disney stars who are now successful in their own industries include:
- Ryan Gosling
- Keri Russell
- Christina Aguilera
While Disney is renowned for bringing some of the biggest pop stars into the spotlight, like Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato, the competition is still tough. You’d think this new age of self-made talent, social media stars, Youtubers and Nickelodeon stars would deter the company from creating new musical talent. Well, you’d be wrong to assume that.
The new wave of Disney superstars is coming fast, and if you haven’t noticed they’re just as talented as ever. Here are 20 things you didn’t know about the new Disney music stars:
1. Dove Cameron—who is somehow 21 years old—is the star of Disney’s Liv and Maddie where she plays both characters. When she’s on set, she always brings her teddy bear friend, Stanley.
2. Born in Seattle, Cameron moved to Los Angeles at age 14. Before that, she spent a few years of her life living in France with family there, and is fluent in the language.
3. She was in a band called The Girl and the Dreamcatcher with her then-boyfriend Ryan McCartan. After the two broke up in 2016, the band moved on.
4. Cameron once had a scary experience with an eye injury, when a stack of paper scratched her cornea. “Just a big ole paper cut,” she told fans on Twitter after posting photos of herself in an eye patch. She’d have to wear the patch for a few days before recovering.
