Thomas Doherty is about to take Disney Channel by storm, as he's going to be appearing in the brand new international series The Lodge, and the upcoming movie Descendants 2. But up until pretty recently, nobody even knew that he was even interested in dancing, acting, and singing. (He's sensational at all three. So you see why we're already crushing on him, right?)
"Until his last year of high school, Thomas kept his love of acting and musical theater a secret. He led a Hannah Montana–esque existence as a soccer star to classmates while quietly nurturing thespian aspirations on the side," a new article reveals about the actor.
But there was a point when Thomas' talents and passions revealed themselves.
"Up until the age of 17, I wanted to play football, and I did acting on a parallel path," Thomas told the magazine. The true best of both worlds.
"There came a point where I had to decide what I wanted to do, and I chose acting."
We can't wait to see his first projects!
