Other than his acting roles, the budding star has a love for photography.
“I always had them around and was always taking pictures of the randomest things,” Corey told MTV News in September 2016. “It sparked something and now it’s like one of my biggest passions.”
Of course, other than sharing his photographs on social media, the actor continues to nab roles. Once Girl Meets World came to an end, Corey appeared in Hulu’s Into The Dark: School Spirit as Brett, whom he told HollywoodLife in August 2019 helped him learn “a lot about levels of emotion” on camera.
“I feel like he’s just such a sweet kid and I really feel for him. He likes to follow the rules and he wants everyone to be safe and respect the school. I just feel like he’s a good influence on people and I hope that I embody some of that in my life with my friends and the people that I surround myself with. But it was also the product in general. I love the show,” Corey shared at the time. “I feel like before I even had the role, I was really excited at the prospect of doing it because it’s super out of the box and I feel like they’re telling really weird, risky and wacky stories, which is cool because I feel like it’s awesome to take risks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but at least they’re trying. I feel like most of the time with them it really works, so I applaud them for that.”
During the same interview, the California native spoke candidly about moving on from his Disney Channel days.
“I think with each new character that I’m able to play, I’m able to step into roles that are more multifaceted,” Corey explained. “So with this one, he has so many levels and layers and it’s cool, especially coming from Disney sitcom where it can be very one-note at times. It is really awesome to start getting the opportunity to just challenge yourself in that way and then to have levels of darkness and all the other things to show growth in my work as I’m growing in my life.”
