Danielle Campbell Interview

Kidzworld talks to young rising star, Danielle Campbell, about Disney's hit new original movie Starstruck, fame and what's in store for her next!


Getting discovered

Danielle Campbell has already been marked for stardom and dubbed the "next Miley Cyrus". A Chicago native, the 15-year-old was discovered during a trip to the salon with her mom. "I never really thought about acting when I was little, I was just getting a haircut at a salon when I was 10 and a woman approached my mom about putting me forward for an audition!" she said.

Starstruck

The music-filled movie Starstruck has become a runaway hit with kids and tweens, along with the musical soundtrack. Danielle, who starred as Jessica Olson in the movie, said: "I'm really surprised at how popular Starstruck has become but I'm so thankful because we worked so hard on it and I'm happy that so many kids enjoy it. I'm also really happy at how the soundtrack turned out!"


Working with Sterling Knight

"I had so much fun filming Starstruck, it was an amazing experience and I bonded right away with Sterling Knight so we had loads of fun together!" she said.


Fame

When asked if fans have started to recognize her on the street, she tells us about a recent trip she took with her family to Mexico. "A bunch of school kids recognized me from Starstruck and I was taking pictures with them and signing autographs, it was amazing!"

Danielle is currently auditioning for some exciting new roles and looks forward to working on more projects very soon! We asked her if she ever gets really nervous before auditions or even before her first major role on the show Prison Break. "I don't really ever get nervous or shy, I just go in there and do my thing!" She adds that she would love to do some more dramas in the future but loves all kinds of acting!


With her first Disney movie under her belt, Danielle is well on her way to becoming a household name!


The Starstruck DVD and 2 Disc DVD and CD soundtrack are both available on June 8, 2010.

When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
