They’re not as different as you might have thought!

Even though she plays the bad guy (or in this case, bad girl!) in Disney Channel’s Descendants 2, 19-year-old China Anne McClain shares a lot of similarities with her on-screen personality.

In a recent interview, the actress revealed what characteristics she shares with Uma, and what she most admires about the teal-loving villain: her determination! China, who’s been working in the industry since she was 5-years-old, can seriously relate to Uma’s willingness to do what she needs to do and work as hard as she can to get it.

“The determination and the not taking “no” for an answer if you really want something. And working as hard as you can to get it. I think that is a very good message for young girls and I hope that they take that away from the character Uma.”
