Today my guest on Hometown to Hollywood is Cameron Boyce. Cameron has done MANY film and TV projects, but he is best known for his roles in Mirrors, Eagle Eye, Grownups and Grownups 2, Jessie, Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything, Descendants, Descendants 2, and Descendants 3.
This is part two of my two-part conversation with Cameron. In this second half of our interview, Cameron covers auditions, dealing with fame, surprises along his journey, and much more!
Be sure to catch part one if you haven’t yet, where he shares about how he got started, who inspires him, training, school, and much more. We get into a lively conversation about the CHSPE that is relevant for any young actor considering taking that test so they can work as a “legal 18” in California.
Cameron’s thoughtful take on the entertainment industry reflects that fact that at the age of 18 he has already spent more than half his life working in it, and has worked with legends. Join us!
Some of my favorite quotes from our conversation:
- “Dancers are some of the best people to be around.”
- “If you beat yourself up, you’ll get sick of it really quickly.”
- “My ‘Butterfly Effect’ is really broad.”
- “I’ve never gotten used to the impact I have on people.”
- “If you’re passionate about becoming famous? Not a good deal.”
- “Stay persistent. Because it doesn’t come overnight.”
- “Give the script the respect that it deserves.”
- “When you are right for a character and role, it’ll happen.”
- “Trust the process.”
- “When you lose your self, you lose everything, so be yourself.”
