New behind the scenes pics for Descendents 2 are coming atcha for the sequel and Dove Cameron revealed that she almost lost her role in Hairspray Live because of it.
Let’s be real, being in demand is a champagne problem, but totally warranted when it means possibly missing out on an awesome opportunity.
Descendants 2 is coming your way next summer and to hold you over, Disney has released some new photos along with a behind the scenes video called “Making of Descendants 2” that will air on November 25th at 8pm during the Disney Parks Presents: A Descendants Magical Holiday Celebration special. The sequel of course stars Dove Cameron who recently revealed that she almost lost her role as Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray Live because of scheduling conflicts with the Descendants and rehearsals.
Dove revealed to Just Jared that her dream role was almost snatched away from her saying QUOTE – “I got the call they offered me the role half an hour before we went on and did the final curtain call for the last season of Liv and Maddie, so it was a very emotional moment for me. And then they took it back! They said they couldn’t offer me the role because I was going off to do Descendants 2, and I was going to miss too much rehearsal time. They didn’t feel safe letting me do something live with that little rehearsal time.”
Dove then went to New York to see Hamilton while she was promoting her EP when she received 5 missed calls from her reps saying that the suits at Hairspray Live wanted to see her one more time for a dance audition before officially solidifying her in the role. She continued the story saying QUOTE –“I walked out of Hamilton and flew back to L.A. the next morning. I got three hours of sleep, and then I went in to audition for choreographer Jerry Mitchell. I was so nervous because I’m not a dancer, I’m much an actor and singer. After the audition, Jerry said, ‘Alright, I’ll see you at the table read on Monday.’ So that was one of the most scary moments of my life.”
Good thing it all worked out because girlfriend is going to kill it in Hairspray Live. I want to hear what you guys think about these Descendants 2 pics and how about Dove’s crazy role tug-of-war?
