It’s no secret that Dove Cameron was the star of Liv and Maddie, however, Laura Marano, Debby Ryan, Cameron Boyce and more stars had guest appearances on the show before it came to an end in March 2017. For four seasons, Dove starred as twins Liv and Maddie, who are leading different lives. One is a high school basketball star while the other is killing it in Hollywood.
“Liv and Maddie didn’t start out as a twin show, I actually played a different character in the beginning, and it was neither of the twins,” Dove told Teen Vogue ahead of the show’s series finale, when reflecting on her role. “It was a completely different show at first, and it took a long time to get it to where it is. I’ve actually been working on it for five years though it’s only been on the air for four — that’s a long time when you’re young. You’re just never prepared for it to tend, and to get there is surreal. I don’t know how to process it. It’s really sad, I couldn’t have asked for a better cast, and we’re going to keep in touch, it’s one of those lifelong friends … family, really.”
The Descendants actress starred alongside Joey Bragg, Tenzing Norgay Trainor and Ryan McCartan, but also made friends with her epic guest stars. She and Jordan Fisher became BFFs off screen and, years after Liv and Maddie, were cast in the move Field Notes on Love together.
“She has been a dear friend since before Liv and Maddie even was a thing, and we loved each other and loved the idea of working with each other,” Jordan told J-14 exclusively in October 2017 about his friendship with Dove. “We actually dreamed and schemed of an idea of me coming onto the show to play her boyfriend on Liv and Maddie and it worked out, thankfully, which is really nice. We love each other. We definitely want to continue to work together. We have an idea of a couple different Broadway shows we could end up being in together. Who knows? That’s something we’re both open to.”
