Since Austin & Ally officially wrapped last year, the cast has all moved on to exciting new projects. Raini Rodriguez has lent her voice to the animated series Mutt & Stuff, Laura Marano is busy working on new music and Calum Worthy still remains to be an active part of the Disney Channel family. And Ross Lynch? He is starring in two new films, Status Update and My Friend Dahmer – along with dropping new music with his band R5. So he's been super busy moving on to the next phase of his career too!
In recent interview though, Ross opened up about what the best part of moving on from Disney has been.
"It’s more opportunity to do films I really want to do," the Disney Channel alum dished.
As for whether he wants to pursue music or movies, he is not intending on choosing just one.
"I’m doing both. The thing with acting is I’m at the liberty of someone who wants to book me. With music, I can do it all the time. With acting, I could, too, if I wanted to write a script and do that whole thing, but music is a constant thing. Acting, I have to audition," Ross spilled.
So what does R5 think about Ross taking time away from the band to focus on acting? Turns out, they're totally cool about it.
"No. I think they appreciate that I am an actor. They feed each other," Ross revealed.
Aw, we just love how the siblings support each other with their passions outside of the band.
Despite the fact that Ross admitted he would go back to Disney just about a week ago, his most recent thoughts on the subject suggest that those days might just actually behind him for good. Cue the tears.
"I love to do anything I haven’t done before. I love variety. While I wouldn’t say that I’m going to do another Disney TV show, I would like to do another comedy or something musical. But I like doing the dark independent stuff as well," the R5 frontman said.
Well, never say never! Perhaps one day he'll feel inspired to head back to the network that gave him his start! Teen Beach 3, anyone?
