Originally, Liv and Maddie was called Bits & Pieces and there were no twins.
Dove Cameron slayed both her roles as twins Liv and Maddie but when she auditioned, the show was totally different and she wasn't even sure she could pull off playing both parts.
"It didn't start out with me playing twins! So when I came on set, I didn't think I was going to be able to do it. I was a nervous wreck, because I didn't audition to play the twins. I only auditioned to play one person, it was a completely different show in the beginning," Dove explained. "I played one girl named Alanna who is neither Liv nor Maddie, and she didn't have a twin – there was no twins. We went away for testing after we filmed the pilot and everybody got to say [what they wanted more of.] So the day I found out we got picked up, they were like, also it's about twins, and you're the twins!"
