Count your blessings Girl Meets World fans because Rowan Blanchard just revealed she almost didn’t audition for the role that launched her career.
We almost didn’t have Rowan Blanchard in our Disney repertoires and she explained why.
Though she has appeared in other projects such as Spy Kids 4, you probably know Rowan Blanchard best from her star making role in Girl Meet’s World alongside Sabrina Carpenter. But Rowan has revealed that her breakout role almost didn’t happen because she almost didn’t audition! She told The Edit QUOTE – «I was like, ‘I will not do Disney ever in my life.’ I watched Disney, but I thought that if you wanted to be a serious film actress then you couldn’t be a Disney actress… which is partially true — I do have to work harder to be taken seriously.»
Of course she did end up auditioning, got the role and the rest is history. Rowan said that she is glad she decided to audition because the exposure gave her the opportunity to use her platform to further her activism. She talked about how she worked to incorporate her passions into the show to start a dialogue amongst young viewers saying QUOTE – «We started thinking about what it could be like if we made this show that was funny for kids, but was also teaching them something. Then, when I started discovering activism, I think it made the show that much better, because we were really getting into these topics, having conversations… If I didn’t like something I would talk to [the writers] about it.»
Although she was afraid that getting her big break on Disney channel would stifle her acting career elsewhere, her success had proven her concerns wrong. She has since landed a role on the Goldbergs and in the highly anticipated film, A Wrinkle in Time. Surely it is only the beginning.
