Olivia Holt Says Her And ‘I Didn’t Do It's Austin North Are Just Like Twins IRL And It’s A Little Weird
The Disney Channel has had its fair share of famous twins — Tia and Tamera, Zack and Cody, Sharpay and Ryan and Liv and Maddie are just a few of duos (both real and fictional) who have passed through the House of Mouse — and now Lindy and Logan Watson are taking twinning to the next level on Disney’s “I Didn’t Do It.”
Speaking to MTV News, Olivia Holt revealed how they’re switching things up for season two (bye bye flashbacks!), what that means for her character Lindy and her strange, twin-like connection with her co-star Austin North, who plays her twin brother Logan.
“Austin and I have this relationship where we’ve been saying the exact same things and we’re like, ‘Woah,’” Holt said. “It throws us off a little bit, but Austin and I have actually known each other since we were about 13 years old and then ironically, we booked this show and now we’re playing siblings.” Holt and North are kind of like the Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of the Disney Channel; the two played love interests on Disney Channel’s “Kickin It” before they were cast as teenage twin siblings on “I Didn’t Do It.” (Hey, great chemistry is hard to come by!)
As for what fans can expect on the second season of “I Didn’t Do It,” the show has graduated from its flashback storytelling now that the gang finds themselves in their sophomore year of high school. “We’re digging deep into the characters and really figuring out who they are as people,” said Holt.
And Lindy, well, she’s more ambitious than ever this season, which will no doubt get her into a few sticky situations. “She has such admiration for her friends, and that’s what I really love about her,” Holt said.
