Even though Austin & Ally isn't off the air, the cast has officially ceased filming, and Ross Lynch is opening up about how he really feels about his Disney days. In a recent interview, he explains that he thought of playing Austin as a job — and actually thought that it wasn't a horrible experience.
“When you’re a part of the Disney family per se, they do kind of give you guidelines. Like listen, don’t post any [scandalous photos], or anything like that obviously. But I actually don’t think the rebelling is because you were a part of Disney. I don’t think that’s it," he told CBS Philly.

He says that he thinks stars like to go crazy after they leave the network because they're upset about being perceived in a particular way.
"People start to think that because you come from Disney that you’re a certain way, or people just perceive you in a certain light that a lot of people don’t want to be perceived as…When you come out of Disney you have a certain perception that people think of you, and I think that’s just what people want to break, and they just do it with extreme measures."
In fact, Ross says that being on the Disney Channel is really "just a good job," no matter what anyone says.
"You are perceived to be such an angel, and really you’re just an actor that booked a job. But everyone thinks that it’s who you are, like they found you. They like raised you. But really it’s just a good job.”
Well, it's refreshing to hear his pragmatic approach!
