Adjusting to fame isn’t easy!

Before Dove Cameron became the queen of Disney Channel, she was just an ordinary teenager in Seattle, Washington, trying to find her place in the world.

Her life turned upside down she was cast for ‘Liv and Maddie‘ in 2013, which catapulted her into the spotlight, something she just wasn’t ready for. Dove admitted that she struggled with her sudden popularity, and could barely keep it together when fans spotted her in public.

“The first time I got recognized, I had a panic attack and had to go into a Nordstrom for half an hour and cry,” she spilled. “Humans are not evolutionarily prepared to get that much attention.”
