China Anne McClain and Nick Jonas' connection goes far beyond the fact that they both starred on Disney Channel. As a matter of fact, China just casually dropped a bomb about her history with the hottie. Yep, she and Nick share something that low-key connects them for life. In an interview, China revealed that Nick actually gave her one of his guitars when she was younger. Can you even imagine?!
"When I was like – maybe like 11, Nick Jonas gave me a guitar, one of his old guitars," China spilled.
OG Disney Channel viewers will recall the small role China played in the Jonas Brother's short-lived yet truly beloved musical-comedy Jonas, which was known as Jonas LA for the second season. China played the character Kiara in three episodes – "Band of Brothers," "Up in the Air" and "The Secret." Although this wasn't her first Disney Channel role (as she appeared in a 2009 episode of Hannah Montana) this was pre-A.N.T. Farm era.
So it's no secret that China and Nick worked together, but who knew that they were close enough that Nick literally gifted China something as sentimental as a guitar – his guitar, no less. Wow, he must have really seen something in China way early on to pass along such a meaningful hand-me-down.
Best part? China jams out on the thing to this day.
"It's at home. I use it in the studio – no, I use it all the time," the Descendants 2 star revealed.
Nick isn't the only star China goes way back with. In fact, China is really popular within the Mickey Mouse fam. And we're not just talking current stars of the network – she's right with Disney stars of all generations. Not only did she star alongside Selena Gomez in Wizards of Waverly Place back in the day, but she and her D2 co-star Cameron Boyce actually starred in Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2 together.
So yeah, it's safe to say China is a legend when it comes to these kinds of things.
