We are so excited for the season two premiere of Kirby Buckets tonight!
With only a few more minutes until we see what Conor, Ashley, Wendell and Franklin are up to next, CelebSecrets4U is giving you the inside scoop on the new DisneyXD series straight from Dawn Buckets herself, Olivia Stuck.
If you’re not familiar with the show already, Kirby Buckets introduces viewers to the vivid imagination of charismatic 13-year-old Kirby Buckets (Jacob Bertrand), who dreams of becoming a famous animator like his idol, Mac MacCallister. With his two best friends, Fish (Mekai Curtis) and Eli (Cade Sutton), by his side, Kirby navigates his eccentric town of Forest Hills where the trio usually find themselves trying to get out of a predicament before Kirby’s sister, Dawn (Olivia Stuck), and her best friend, Belinda (Tiffany Espensen), catch them. Along the way, Kirby is joined by his animated characters, each with their own vibrant personality that only he and viewers can see.
In the premiere episode called “Failure to Launch,” Kirby (Bertrand) launches his own web channel named Kirblammo, but Dawn (Stuck), tired of always being overshadowed, hijacks his channel to try and ruin his big day.
CelebSecrets4U recently caught up with Olivia Stuck, who plays Dawn on Kirby Buckets. Dawn is the older sister of Kirby and best friend to Belinda. She is always trying to find a way to get her brother in trouble and impress Mandy McDaniels, the coolest girl in school. In our interview, Olivia talks about the show and how she relates to Dawn. She also tells us what we can expect from the show’s second season and teases some super cool guest stars! Olivia even opened up about her new movie The Outfield with Cameron Dallas and Nash Grier, her original music, and her love for Japanese beauty products — make sure to check out the full Q&A below!
Kirby Buckets airs on Wednesdays at 8:00PM ET/PT on DisneyXD.
CS4U: You star as Dawn Buckets on Disney XD’s “Kirby Buckets.” The new season starts in a couple of weeks. What can we expect from the show and your character?
Olivia Stuck: “You can expect a ton of crazy story lines and plot twists. Dawn is definitely growing and maturing as time goes by, she is still terribly clumsy. She’s getting there.”
CS4U: You mentioned on Twitter a couple of cool guest stars. Can you give us any hints?
Olivia Stuck: “Can’t say too much, but I’m extremely fond of all of them. There isn’t one that’s even remotely similar to the other. They’re so funny and unique.”
CS4U: You’re also starring in the movie The Outfield. Can you tell us about that?
Olivia Stuck: “Yes ma’am! The Outfield is coming out so soon! I will surprise a few people, I’m sure. You see different sides of both Nash and Cameron. I’m beyond excited.”
CS4U: You’re starring opposite Vine star Cameron Dallas. What was it like working with him?
Olivia Stuck: “Cameron is a funny guy. It was great working with him.”
CS4U: Do you have Vine? Do you have any favorite Viners?
Olivia Stuck: “I do have a vine actually, but I don’t vine much! I don’t know if I have a favorite viner, but I love the funny vines and the music ones. ”
CS4U: You’re also a singer! You have new music coming out next year. What can you tell us about it?
Olivia Stuck: “I can tell you guys that its like a pop/alternative/rock hybrid. It’s fun.”
CS4U: Do you write your own songs? If so, where do you get the inspiration from?
Olivia Stuck: “I write most of them! I get inspiration from everything. I tend to just pull things from my memory.”
CS4U: Anything you’ve written that you’ve been too embarrassed to share?
Olivia Stuck: “I always get embarrassed. If i’m writing about love or anything like that it’s so difficult for me to share because I start blushing like an idiot haha.”
CS4U: You tweeted to Nicole Arbour, the YouTuber who made the video Dear Fat People. Was it important for you to let people know you disagreed with what was said in the video?
Olivia Stuck: “I tweeted Nicole Arbour about her YouTube video because I felt the entire video was just wrong and inappropriate. First of all, who is she to comment on somebody else’s body shape and immediately throw it into the category of ugly? I didn’t understand that. I think she forgot that there is a variety of different viewers on youtube and the younger generation does NOT need to associate being fat with being ugly. Because that is beyond incorrect. Overall I was disappointed because she was making these statements that suggested that she personally knows every single person who is overweight. She has absolutely no idea what people are going through whether they are currently trying to lose weight, or if they’re going through depression or anything of that sort. Promoting fat shaming and self hate in order to get down to a socially acceptable body weight is something that I refuse to find funny (because she claims to be a comedian).”
CS4U: Since we are CelebSecrets4U, can you tell us a secret about yourself that your fans may not know?
Olivia Stuck: “This isn’t a super deep secret, but I absolutely love Japanese beauty products and Japanese candy. The packaging is so adorable and its impossible to be in a bad mood when eating a green tea Kit Kat! Im obsessed! Haha.”
