“They’re the people that I would consider my closest friends,” he told EW.
“I grew up on ‘A Girls Journey’ that’s just one of those things that is just so well crafted, it’s just so real and it just really brings out the humanity and the humanity of that kid.
I just wanted to be that kid that’s not afraid to make a joke, to be someone that is kind of a little different.
It just came about because of that experience.”
And then, just a few years later, he got a call from Disney, who wanted to produce the film.
And that’s when he became a regular on the set, making jokes and getting laughs.
“Disney said, ‘This is something you really want to be involved in.’
I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m really interested in this, and I’m going to be there.'”
