What Moises Arias Has Said About Disney Channel Days

During a 2013 interview with Tribute, the actor behind Rico revealed that Hannah Montana has been his most impactful role to date.

“I mean I grew up on Hannah Montana so you could say that’s been my favorite or most impactful,” he told the outlet. “I was on that show from when I was 10 years old to 16 and in between that I got to do all those other great projects such as Wizards, Everybody Hates Chris, and just a bunch of other TV shows and films. They’re all very different and really help you grow as an actor.”

He also explained that he doesn’t deny his Disney roots, and Rico remains one of his “favorite characters” that he’s ever done.

“Well the main thing that people mess up on is denying the fact that they were on something like that,” he said of former Disney actors. “A lot of people were embarrassed or something. That’s probably one of my favorite characters that I’ve ever done, to think that a lot of people have grown up with me. I think one of the biggest things is finding characters. I mean, Rico is a character. Biaggio, Bonzo and Antonio, they’re all characters. I think it’s really just quality over quantity as they say.”
