I couldn’t believe that they asked me and I was excited and grateful for this unbelievable opportunity.

5. What can you share with us about your character in Disney’s “Magic Camp”?
AC Brown is part of a ragtag group of rookie magicians. He is nerdy, happy, and loves magic!
6. What is the movie about?
Disney’s “Magic Camp” is about a group of young inspiring magicians and a former camper whose field career as a magician makes him come back as a camp counselor to a ragtag group of kids. He is so inspired by the young campers that he rediscovers his love for magic.
