Become a Disney Channel Star
Being a Disney Channel star is all about acting over the top. Practice by making faces in the mirror and screaming; that's all there is to it. Do not act natural. Instead, act like a cartoon character. Even better: act like a cartoon character in a soap opera that has overloaded on an energy drink. Perfect! You're on your way to becoming a fabulous Disney Channel star!
Don't Act or Look Your Age
Jason Earles played Hannah's older brother in 'Hannah Montana' from 2006 to 2011. Contrary to his appearance, he began this role at the mature age of 29 and ended it at 34. Take a cue from him; if you are short, have a childish face, or can disguise yourself as an adolescent, you can make it big on the Disney Channel!
Forget child labor laws and the pressure of youngsters learning while working; Disney will be begging 18 year olds and up to act on their shows. All you have to do is look and act immature. Pigtails are your friend. Sneakers, jeans, and graphic T-shirts will have you looking like the boy or girl next door. Revert to your younger years by reminiscing. Now what was it I yelled to my parents after they gave me that stupid curfew? Whine repeatedly, be extremely bubbly, or just plain be loud.
To look like a star meant for Disney magic, you have to be overzealous in your appearance. Males should probably wear skinny jeans, a T-shirt, a vest, sneakers and a hat. Neon or bright colors should be randomly placed for that tacky, layered look. The ladies can have even more fun with layers! Start with an oddly printed shirt, add leggings, throw over a skirt, wear a vest or jacket, add several necklaces, wear 20 bracelets, and 2 scarves (matching is not required). You might want to add some fake neon pink hair or get extremely long extensions. For both, remember that you are acting like a cartoon character in a soap opera; you have to look the part, too!
