Today my guest on Hometown to Hollywood is Brenna D’Amico. Brenna is best known for her role as Jane on Disney Descendants, The Wicked World animated series, and Descendants 2, which comes out this summer. [UPDATE: Brenna is also in the upcoming Descendants 3!]



Brenna D’Amico is only 16 but she has some very insightful things to say about acting, auditioning, keeping a positive attitude, and about life in general. We discuss how she broke into the business from her native Chicago, what landing in Hollywood has been like, challenges, and advice for young actors.

Some of my favorite quotes:

  • “I let the word ‘no’ motivate me to get that ‘yes’.”
  • “I always think, if one of my idols can do it, I can too!”
  • “If you work hard enough, and you believe in yourself, anything is possible.”
  • “Don’t let negativity in your life. Push it aside.”
  • “Don’t ‘play’ the character. BE that person.”
  • “Don’t get lazy. And never, never give up.”
