Laura Marano is busy right now taking on the pop world with her debut single, "Boombox," but if there's one thing we know about her, she'll never forget where it all began. Yes, we're talking about her beloved TV show, Austin & Ally, and in a recent interview, the starlet spoke about exactly why her time playing Ally Dawson will always have such a special place in her heart.
"What's awesome to me is I've always loved music It was an amazing opportunity and an amazing experience. [Ally] had such a cool character arc. She was really shy and insecure in the first and beginning of the second season but she became more and more confident and I love that," Laura explained. "When Ross, Raini and Calum and I would do meet and greets and meet all these fans, it's still surreal and so cool. And social media is a whole big part of it too. For us, we didn't even know if we were coming back for a fourth season and our fans are incredible and literally trended every day that they wanted season four of Austin & Ally. We had a really awesome range [of fans]. I still have five-year-olds come to me and say they're huge fans and then I have 22-year-olds."
Laura is just so grateful to have been a part of such a beloved show and it's obvious a piece of her will remain Ally forever. The feels right now.
