Dove Cameron shares that ‘kind’ Selena Gomez gave her advice before starring on a Disney Channel show as a child: ‘She had me over at her house’

Dove Cameron revealed that Selena Gomez told her she was ‘gonna kill it’ on the Disney Channel when she was cast in Liv And Maddy.

The 26-year-old actress-and-singer found it ‘really important’ to have the sage counsel of the former Wizards Of Waverly Place star before she made her debut in the hit show, in which she played the titular twin sisters from July 2013 to March 2017.

‘Selena gave me some advice on what not to do, and definitely things to do,’ she told BuzzFeed News.

And they stayed friends.

‘For a couple months following that, I would text her in a panic being like, “I don’t know what to do, I’ve never done this before!” And she’s like, “Be yourself; everybody wants you to be yourself. You’re gonna kill it.” That was really important to me,’ added Dove.

Dove was put into contact with Selena by Gary Marsh — who ran the Disney Channel — and feels indebted to him for all the success she has had in her career.

She said: ‘When I first started out on Disney Channel, the head of the network at the time, Gary Marsh, was also the person who had discovered Selena. I owe him everything, what he did for me and my career.

‘He loved Selena and he was like, “I really want you to do me a favor, would you go and meet with Selena? She can talk to you about what this is about to be because your life’s going to change.”‘

‘She was really kind. She had me over to her house. I had never even done anything. I wasn’t doing interviews or anything. We sat at her kitchen table for hours, I think she offered to make me toast.’
