Hello Dakota, hope you are doing well! How are you spending your days during the quarantine?
The good thing about being quarantined is that I have more time to practice my guitar and play music! I also love to watch movies with my mom and cook with her!
What’s the one thing you would say has helped you cope the most through the craziness?
Definitely music! I have more free time to practice the things that I love doing!
Alright let’s talk Coop & Cami. First, how has life changed for you since starring on a hit Disney Channel show?
I feel so grateful for this amazing opportunity to follow my passion and discover every day how much I love acting!
For those who haven’t seen it yet, why do you think people should tune-in?
I think people show tune in to Coop and Cami because it’s a fun show for the whole family to watch together!
And the biggest challenge about being on the show?
There is no real challenge in the show! It is so much fun to film and we have a blast on set!
What’s the funniest behind-the-scenes moment you’ve experienced there so far?
Every Tuesday is a theme day on set! We had a day that was Twin themed and I and my stand-in came to set in the same outfit! It was so funny!
Who inspires you and why?
Leonardo DiCaprio inspires me because not only is he an amazing actor but he also cares about the environment which is something I feel very passionate about!
If you weren’t a performer, what other type of career would you be interested in pursuing?
I would want to be an environmentalist or an educator on animal rights and environmental awareness!
Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you?
Something people don’t know about me is that I feel passionate about our Earth and I have a new song coming out April 3rd about the Earth and how we should all love and take care of it!
Biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is when someone is on their phone while you are hanging out with them.
Tell me one bad habit you are trying to change.
A bad habit that I have that I’m trying to cut off is saying the words “like” and “um” too much in a sentence!
My favorite food is probably Vegan Thai food or Vegan Italian food!
Least favorite food?
My least favorite food is oatmeal!
If you could pass a law everyone in the world had to follow, what would it be?
A law that would pass out that everyone would have to follow would be to not drink, eat, or contain items in plastic!
The Funk Bro’s are my favorite YouTubers because they do awesome stunts and pranks!
