The Disney Life “Kylie Cantrall”

Kylie

There are kids all around the world who dream of being on Disney and how cool that would be. A young lady living in LA is one of these kids. Kylie Cantrall is a clever and quirky twelve-year-old whose whole existence is primarily based around Disney .  Those who follow her on social media knows how true this is. Many people may recognize  her on social media as, “Hello Kylie”. If you are one of these people, then you know her obsession. The Disney life is what she was born to live.

Kylie is one of those people who seems to be literally born talented, it all flows through her naturally. She is ridiculously funny, quick witted and extremely smart. Kylie is also a sensational vocalist, certainly one of the best in her age group. This appears to be natural as well. In the interview she said, “I guess you can say I never really started singing,  it was just always there. I started recording as early as two years old”. How crazy is that, recording at two! That’s awesome. With her dad being a music producer, singing was in her blood.

Outside of Kylie’s music videos, she performs live as well. She has performed a great deal live, and she says opening up for Post Malone was one of her favorites. “I was only ten, and he was playing a sold out event in Orange County, 5 thousand people! And at first they were like,  What’s this little kid doing on stage”, says Kylie. Needless to say, everyone at the sold out show loved her.

Songwriting is another skill she has been showing off, and can be heard in the lyrics in her song, “Shake”. This song was co-written by her along with Dwight Watson and Jeff Hoeppner. This song flows very well and it will get stuck in your head. She said this is a cut loose and have a good time song. Part of the reason she wrote the song, was because of her addiction to chocolate milkshakes. (who isn’t right)

The video for “Shake” is a blast to watch, the choreography is brilliant. The idea for the video came from Kylie along with the director Nayip Ramos. It was all filmed in a warehouse in North Hollywood. She says they went that morning and bought all the plants Home Depot had, shot the video and then returned them. (That’s funny, but clever). Whoever hasn’t seen this video yet needs to check it out, it carries a good Disney vibe. Kids will love it.

Currently, Kylie has four songs recorded and published. She says, she is always working on new material and is in the process of signing her first label deal. For now she cannot say what her new single will be that’s coming out, but she says, “It’s gonna be Hot”! Also she has some pop songs, trap music, and will even be singing in Spanish, a little something for everyone.

Kylie is a huge Disney fan and has been lucky to spend a great deal of her time there. “It feels like a second home” says Kylie. Her Disney dreaming is paying off. Soon there’s an  episode of Bizaardvark that will air Kylie will be in. In this episode, Kylie will be playing Tessa, Bernie Shots assistant. “I have some great funny moments joking” says Kylie. Keep an eye out for this episode, you don’t want to miss it.

Being a huge Disney fan she does have some favorites, one of them is, Raven’s Home. One of the reasons Kylie likes this show so much is, one of her friends is on it, Sky Katz. (Sky co-stars on Raven’s Home and prior to that on America’s Got Talent rapping, awesome rapper) Kylie says Sky is one of the coolest people she knows.

TV has already been a big part of her life with her first TV show being at seven years old. Her mom works for a station called, Estrella TV. Her mom helped her to get on one of the dance shows. Since then, she has been on a couple other shows and commercials. “I really love the TV side of entertainment” says Kylie.

Along with music videos, she has also been producing a series called, Hello Kylie. She now has twelve episodes and they are all hilarious. In these episodes she talks about things or people she likes. They are mostly music related and will usually find her singing and dancing to some of her favorite songs. One of her favorites to produce was episode 12, Pentatonix.  “I got to cast a bunch of kids my age to play the “Kid Version” of the Pentatonix. We shot that whole Episode in our living room” says Kylie. It was a family production, her and her dad came up with the outline and her mom did the hair and make-up.  This episode is a blast to watch.

Even when Kylie is not making videos, she is always doing something that is fun and entertaining. When Kylie was asked what other fun things she likes do, here is what she said: “I have three main passions right now: Watching scary movies, playing “Fortnight” and developing my skills as a “Baby Goat Whisperer”. LOL
People often ask me what its like being a “Goat Whisperer”? I say “it not BahahahahaD. Its’ obvious she is just a blast all the time.

Kylie is well gifted in many areas of entertainment, along with a huge personality. Her creativity and vision is well beyond her years. Watching her videos, her delivery does not appear to be scripted, just all ad-lib. She has the likability factor that will take her a long way in entertainment. However, her natural ability with comedy, dance and singing will launch her career further than Zendaya. Any network could easily create a show around Kylie, it would be a household hit. Keep watching for more great things from Kylie.

Ciara Wilson

One of the best things about TV shows and films are the comedians that play in many of them. There’s nothing better than a good laugh. Ciara Wilson is one of these comedians that can spawn  one of those laughs. She is gifted in comedy, she can create a laugh from people through movements, facial expressions and verbally. 

Ciara started her career at eight years of age in Portland Oregon. Her first roles were voice-overs for Fred Mayer/Kroger grocery stores. She ended up being involved with several commercials in Portland before heading to LA. Once Ciara arrived in LA, her first project would be a co-starring role on, Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger. After this she would go on to be a guest-star on Disney’s Bizaardvark as Vicki “Hot Head” Fuego. Also on Dreamworks TV series “OMG” Ciara is recurring appearing in thirty sketches so far.  

The Disney episode of Bizaardvark vs. Hot Head is extremely funny. This show is fun for the audience and fun for Ciara. “Playing Vicki Fuego was one of the most fun and interesting experiences I’ve ever had” said Ciara. Surprisingly, playing the role of a fighter came easily for her. As it turns out, she has had a little training in the martial art style of Taekwondo. “But it was my professional Hip Hop dance career and athleticism that really helped me land the role” said Ciara. This episode is a blast to watch. Some of the faces Ciara makes in her scenes are “classic”, you cannot help but laugh. One of the cool things for Ciara, was the role of a tough and aggressive girl which is totally opposite of who she really is. 

In this episode there were a stretch of scenes with “Vicki” breaking several props. There was a cinder block which she punched to pieces and then chopped three wooden shelves in half. One of the funniest scenes was of Vicki pulling a stuffed bunny apart. She started pulling it apart by hand, then pulls its ear off with her teeth, and the look on her face was priceless. Pulling it apart with her teeth was not in the scripted.  “On the last take, I decided to take a risk and pull the last ear off with my teeth! Everyone in the room was laughing, and the director decided to keep it in the show” said Ciara.

Dreamworks TV is a bit like home for Ciara with her recurring on “OMG”. She says this has been fun filming and has met many lifelong friends through it. “Sketch  comedy is one of my favorite things to do and the OMG sketches were so funny and over the top” said Ciara. Cheerleaders were one of her favorite episodes to film. In this episode Ciara got to play alongside one of her best friends. They played cheerleaders who cheered for people in the worst situations. Some of these situations include, during a science fair, on a first date, babysitting, plus many more. 

Her talent as an actress has not been going unnoticed. In the spring of 2017 she won the Young Entertainer Award for Best Guest Starring Actress in a TV series for her role on Bizaardvark. She was also nominated for a Young Entertainer Award for her Dreamworks TV sketches as well as two Young Entertainer Awards for the same roles.  



Ciara may have played a mean tough girl on TV, but in real life she has a heart of gold. She is part of, The Children’s Outreach. This organization donates clothes, shoes and toys to kids. When volunteering you get assigned a child to pick out a package for specifically. “We always wonder where exactly our donations are going, so I love how personal the Children’s Outreach is” says Ciara.  Her favorite time to volunteer is during Christmas because many of the children come from financial backgrounds that do not allow them to have presents at all. “It’s heartwarming reading about their favorite toys and wish lists and imagining their faces when they receive their packages” said Ciara. She is happy to be able to can make a difference in their lives.  

For her fans, she says never be afraid to reach out. “I love love to talk to my supporters about their dreams, passions and favorite things to do” says Ciara. She also says, she responds to comments and direct messages often and its the best way to keep in touch with her. Ciara loves to inspire others.

 

Kiersey Clemons (Austin and Ally)

 There is a fantastic new face coming to Austin and Ally very soon, and this lovely young lady is, Kiersey Clemons. While she may be new to Austin and Ally, she is not new to Disney. If you are a Disney fan, then you have seen her on Shake It Up, where she played the mean cheerleader (Danielle) that Gunther wanted to date. Then Kiersey appeared on Good Luck Charley as the new girl (Alicia) that Teddy was trying to convince Emmet to go to their school dance with. Now all of Kiersey’s fans and the new ones to come, can catch her regular on Disney’s hit series, Austin and Ally.

 Kiersey is really going to make a great addition to Austin and Ally; she has an amazing personality, and is a very sweet and funny girl. When she was asked what her reaction was when she got the part of Kira Starr, she said, “I was more than excited!! I watch the show and it’s hilarious. I couldn’t wait to meet everyone, they’re so talented”.  On the show Kira is Jimmy Starr’s daughter, and watch out, you just might see some sparks fly from Austin and Kira. The first episode Kiersey will make her debut appearance on as Kira is, “Ferris Wheels and Funky Breath”. When they picked Kiersey for the role of Kira, they could not have made a better decision, she fits prefect. Kira is the most forgiving person in the world, and even though she is the daughter of a record label owner she is a very down to earth girl. She is always happy and fits in really well. This is Kiersey to a “T”.

Kiersey Clemons at stars2come Kiersey has been filming for a while, and she says it has been amazing. She has enjoyed working with the cast and crew. She loves the live tapings because everyone’s energy is so high and Ross’ (Austin) family comes, and her friends come and everyone gets to hangout and has a good time. When not on camera the cast will often hangout in Calum’s (Dez) dressing room and laugh, tell stories and sometimes play Rock Band, but she says she is really not that good at it, but it`s fun.  Also when off camera someone is always singing something. Kiersey was asked if there was a prankster among the cast and she said, if she expected a prank from someone it would be Ross, he’ll hit the back of her knee and it will give out or he’ll trip her. Watch out Ross, she just might return the favor. She says the whole cast are all really nice and funny. Kiersey’s favorite thing about the cast is, Calum always seems to have the best stories, Laura (Ally) is the most positive and genuine person, Ross just wants to have fun all the time, “she loves that”, and Raini (Trish) is the best person for girl time. Kiersey just loves them all.

 Like many of us Kiersey grew up watching Disney, and she was always wishing she was Lizzie McGuire and Raven. Now that she is part of the Disney family, she says it is a real satisfying feeling. She says to watch out for season 2, because it is going to be crazy!

 Just like Kiersey there are many others out there looking to be where she is now. Kiersey’s advice to them is: “It’s a tough business, you get knocked down a lot so you have to make sure you are in it for the right reasons. Otherwise, it won’t feel worth it. Passion, perseverance and positivity are key”. Kiersey’s addition to this great and funny show will make it even funnier. Kiersey says to keep an ear out because she is working on some music and that will be coming soon. Don’t miss any episodes of Austin and Ally. To stay on top of all the episodes visit the Disney Channel regular for all dates and times.

 

Davis Cleveland “Shake It Up”

Davis Cleveland at stars2come Davis is nine years old, a fantastic young actor currently staring in “Shake It Up”. Davis is originally from Texas, but now residing in LA. He plays the role of Flynn Jones on “Shake It Up” a hot new Disney show that is about two girls Rocky Blue ( Zendaya) and his sister Ce Ce (Bella Thorne)  that made it on to a Chicago TV dance show called “Shake It Up Chicago”. This is a very funny and entertaining show. Flynn`s character is more of a care free person with an outgoing personality. No matter what happens nothing seems to bother him in the least, and anything can happen when he is around. In one episode he found a energy drink on the table “Bang Pow Zoom!” he zoomed alright, all around the apartment non stop for hours, causing Rocky and Ce Ce not to get any sleep before thier dance marathon. In all the episodes he does amazingly well and always very funny. He is hysterical, you never know what he is going to say or do. Davis is certainly the perfect person for this role, Disney gets two thumbs up for choosing Davis. His talent far exceeds his age.

 When watching Davis, another great actor comes to mind, Kurt Russel. He is similar to Kurt when he was at his age. Kurt started out on Disney as well, beginning his career on the Mickey Mouse Club, then went on to star in many TV shows and movies. Davis how ever didn`t start with the Mickey Mouse Club, he began his career  in commercials from McDonald’s to Nintendo along with many others.  Davis has not appeared in any movies yet, but he is racking up the TV shows with nine under his belt so far, not to mention he stared in the pilot of “Sons Of Tucson”. With Davis gaining so much experience at a young age, and his love of acting,  he is sure to rise up to be a great actor taking his place along side other actors who started at a young age, like Kurt.

 After following him on twitter for a while, and watching some interviews of him, it is easy to see that he is a very intelligent and witty person. From the interviews he seems to be the happiest kid on the planet, and not just that, there is something about him that just lights up the screen and makes you pay attention to what he is doing and saying. He has a glow about him. This is something that you either have or you don`t, and he has it. This wit and glow he has shows on and off screen. When talking to people on twitter all of this comes through in his conversations, it is always interesting what he has to say.  Davis is someone who truly appreciates his fans, he is always kind and polite. Davis may be an  actor, but he enjoys doing regular kid stuff like anyone else, like hanging out with friends and listening to music. He likes pop and hip hop, but he also enjoys music from the 80`s. His dad is a big fan of 80`s music and some of this has rubbed off on him. One of the artists he has been listening to recently is Billy Ocean, a great artist from the 80`s, showing that Davis also has a excellent taste in music.

 Davis has a great start on his career and it is going to be interesting to see where he goes with it. “Shake It Up” is one of the best shows that Disney has put on. The whole cast does an amazing job in their roles. It is always a blast to watch Flynn, you just never know what is going to happen, but you will laugh. If you have never seen “Shake It Up” be-sure to stop by Disney Channel and check it out, you will be glad you did.
