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!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
