He's an actor, a singer, a Grade A Tweeter, and now Austin & Ally star Calum Worthy is adding something new to his resume: He's officially a writer.
Calum, who plays Dez on everybody's fave Disney Channel show, got the opportunity to write the script for the new episode Eggs & Extraterrestrials that's premiering as part of this weekend's Out of This World event. M chatted with Calum all about the episode and now we totally can't wait until Sunday to watch. (Ummm, can we get a sneak peek?!)
"Well, it’s your typical romantic comedy storyline," Calum tells M EXCLUSIVELY. "The gang goes to a Zalien Convention and end up meeting real Zaliens who try to eat their brains on their spaceship."
Woah, sounds intense, right, M Girls?! Calum also revealed to M that he thinks writing is a really important skill to have.
"I would encourage any actor to also learn how to write," he says. "The industry is changing a lot and I believe it makes a fundamental difference to your career if you can create your own work."

Did you know that Calum ALWAYS wanted to write?
"We have the best writers in the business and from day one of Austin & Ally, I was really hoping I would get a chance to learn from our incredible team," Calum admits. "When we were filming our second season, I would stay late after work to sit in the writers' room to learn how the process works."
