You’re not the only one who loves Ross Lynch!

We recently caught up with Will Buie Jr. (from Disney Channel’s “Bunk’d“) — who told us that it was the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” star (and “Austin and Ally” alum) who inspired him to jump into acting in the first place. How cool is that?!

He grew up watching Ross on screen, and actually got the chance to meet him briefly once, but was too shy to talk to him for long. Now that Will’s had his big break as Finn, he’d love to thank the 23-year-old actor for having such a meaningful impact on his life:

“He was the person who made me want to start acting…”Austin and Ally” was my favorite show…I was like ‘Mom, I want to be an actor.’ [If I ever met him again,] I would probably say something like, ‘you made me want to act when I was younger and you are the reason why I’m here today. Thank you so much!”

In case you missed it, Ross Lynch recently got real about how playing Harvey Kinkle made him a better actor.
