Okay, Jessie fans, prepare yourselves. Cameron Boyce, who plays Luke on the show, is back again with another interview! It’s been a little while since our first interview with the 15-year-old star, so we’re bringing you a much-needed update. We caught up with the actor to talk about how Luke’s growing up, what kind of silly (and sweet) stuff his fans send him, and, yes, about Frank the lizard. Check it out!

Q: This year you seem to be growing up a lot! How has that changed your character?

Cameron: I’m growing, yeah, and hopefully Luke is taking more baths this year compared to last year! (laughs) He’s not as smelly! Hopefully, we will start getting some girls for Luke besides Jessie . . . he has got to get over Jessie.

Q: So how is it working with everyone, including the lizard?

Cameron: The lizard’s name is Frank, and he is a dude. He’s pretty slow and he is not very intimidating. You think that he can run after you and eat you, but he’s really slow. He’s a big boy!

Q: What kind of stuff do you get from the fans?

Cameron: I get a lot of funny letters. The cutest ones I get are from really little girls, because they are full of misspelled words and words are backwards. They all pretty much say, “You’re cute . . . I like you a lot!” I also get a lot of things in the mail . . . like bracelets. I get a lot of bracelets. I got a stuffed Koala from Georgia.

Did you read our earlier interview with Cameron? Be sure to check that out, and also don’t miss our interview with his castmate Karan Brar (and take our Jessie Would You Rather quiz)! Are you excited to see what happens with Luke next? Are you a Jessie fan? What kind of fan mail would YOU send Cameron? Share your thoughts in the Comments below!

See y’all around,

Starting a new school year is never easy, but fear not! Some amazing Disney Channel stars are here to share their best back-to-school advice. Read what they have to say.

Don’t be afraid to meet new people and make new friends. There is always someone at your school who’s as nervous as you are about socializing with new people.

Kelli Berglund in How to Build a Better BoyHow to Build a Better Boy

Get ready for a new Disney Channel movie starring Kelli Berglund, China Anne McClain, and Marshal Williams. How to Build a Better Boy premieres at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 15. In the movie, best friends Mae and Gabby are super-smart tech whizzes but not very popular in school. When mean-girl Neveah (played by Ashley Argota) teases Mae about not having a date to the Homecoming Dance, the friends use a computer to program the perfect boy. What could possibly go wrong? Umm. . . lots.

First let’s meet the boy, played by Marshall Williams. Check out this video.

Now, let’s hear from Kelli.

Q: What’s the most embarrassing that’s happened to you?
Kelli: One time I was filming a scene, and I slipped and I fell right on my face. Billy [who plays her brother Chase on Lab Rats] and I tripped over each other and we just landed face-down in opposite directions. It was really funny! It was on camera, but we just got up and laughed it off.

Q: Can you tell me one thing that you think would help to make the world a better place?
Kelli: I think everyone should stop being so judgmental of everybody. I think if we started loving more–I honestly think that would definitely help make the world a better place.

Q: What’s the best book you ever read (besides this one)?
Kelli: The Maze Runner (for ages 12 and up) and they are actually turning it into a movie, which I am really excited about. It was so good. It’s kind of similar to The Hunger Games (for ages 12 and up) but the storyline is completely different. It involves a lot of action and character development. I actually auditioned to be in the movie! And I was like, “I read the book and I’m prepared,” but I ended up not booking it. But it was cool just to audition for it.

Watch Kelli talking about The Maze Runner in this brand new video.

Are you excited for Kelli’s new movie? Share your thoughts in the comments below! And don’t forget to read our earlier interview with Kelli and her Lab Rats castmates, as well as our interview with Kelli’s new costar, China Anne McClain!
