Recently, M had the chance to chat with Liv & Maddie actor Ryan McCartan, who is starring in the upcoming movie Summer Forever alongside some pretty famous names: Megan Nicole, Alyson Stoner, and Anna Grace Barlow. Ryan dished all about the film and of course, about his girlfriend Dove Cameron, but now, Ryan's revealing what it was like working with former Disney Channel star Alyson Stoner.
"We all knew of each other [going into it]," Ryan EXCLUSIVELY tells M. "Megan’s song has been stuck in my head for two years!" True, Ryan, true.
"The one weird thing," he admits, "was that I watched Alyson on the Disney Channel and in Cheaper by the Dozen when I was like, tiny. And so to work with her was like, 'Oh my God, you're Alyson Stoner!' She's been around the block a lot."
Considering Alyson has been in Disney projects like Camp Rock, Phineas and Ferb, and big blockbuster movies like Step Up and Cheaper by the Dozen, we can absolutely imagine how starstruck Ryan must've been meeting and working with her for the first time!
"But you know, [my co-stars have] seen Liv & Maddie and they were familiar with Heathers and stuff like that, stuff that I've done. It's just a weird industry in that you kind of work with people you happen to be fans of," Ryan admits.
So we wondered: Did it ever get awkward or strange on set interacting with people whose work you were familiar with?
"It never got weird, it was just kind of cool," Ryan clarifies. "It was like, 'look at all these amazing, talented, respected people in the same room making this thing together.'"
You're totally right, Ryan — it sounds like an insanely awesome opportunity to get to work with such talented people like Alyson and Megan Nicole. We absolutely can't wait for the movie to be released online; let the countdown begin!
