She seems like the rare Disney Channel star who can make an easy transition to other kinds of work in Hollywood. People already have her pegged for great things.

16 Her Personal Style Is So Unique
We already discussed how Dove is basically a beauty guru, but she could totally be a fashion guru, too. Her personal style is amazing! She always seems to be finding unique pieces that you wouldn’t see on anyone else in Hollywood. She accessorizes with lots of amazing jewelry, and you are just as likely to see her rocking an all black outfit as you are a more colorful ensemble.
Honestly, who else could pull off that jacket?
We think that the various roles she has taken on over the years have inspired some of her looks, especially her character Mal in the Descendants! After scrolling through her Instagram for a bit, you’ll be hitting up thrift stores and department stores alike trying to recreate her looks. Maybe we should just tweet at her and ask if she would ever consider starting a clothing line. We would drop some serious cash on those clothes.
15 She Uses Her Platform To Express Her Gratitude
Dove has worked very hard to get where she is today. But just like anyone else, she has had to accept help from other people along the way. Some people might get famous and forget about everyone who gave them a helping hand, but not Dove. She is always using her platform o express her gratitude for everyone who made it possible for her to make it in Hollywood. Just look at this adorable photo that she posted on her Instagram.
After she was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Liv and Maddie, Disney sent her this congratulatory card and flowers.
Naturally, the first thing she did was hop on Instagram to give them a shoutout and thank them for giving her a chance when they cast her for Liv and Maddie. It’s always nice to see a celebrity who remembers where they came from.
14 Her And Her Boyfriend Are #Goals
Okay, yes, that is a photo of Dove’s boyfriend wearing a jacket with her face on it. Totally extra? Yes. Totally adorable? Also yes. How many guys out there would be willing to do something like that? We’re willing to bet the answer is “not many.” She is currently dating Thomas Doherty, who is one of her fellow cast members in the Descendants series. She is always posting cute photos of the two of them hanging out together, traveling the world, and just generally being #relationshipgoals.

Dove is clearly very close with her family, and she has actually used to social media to open up about family matters that she typically keeps quiet about offline. When Dove was eighteen, her father passed away, and this was obviously a very difficult time for her family. She rarely talks to the press about this time in her life, but she posted a touching tribute to her father on Instagram in his memory. She also posts old photos of herself with her mother and sister.

11 She Is Always Boosting Up Her Friends
Dove always seems to be using her platform for good—that’s why she is such a great role model to her young audience! Just look at this adorable Instagram photo of her with some of her close friends at Coachella. Dove could make her social media platform all about her, and her fans probably wouldn’t mind—but instead, she also uses it to give her close friends a shout out every once in a while! Dove has lots of friends who aren’t famous at all, but to her, that doesn’t matter. She still supports them one hundred percent, and it’s clear that she doesn’t choose her social circle based on money or status.

Yes, her time on Liv and Maddie has ended, but if you like fantasy musicals, you will definitely want to check out the Descendants series that she stars in. Fantasy not quite your thing? Well, what about superheroes? Then you should tune into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where she plays a totally different kind of character.

However, she does not respond to comments on Instagram as frequently, so Instagram isn’t the best place to get in touch with her (although by this point, you already know that you should be following her on there anyway).

On both Twitter and Instagram, she has openly talked about the fact that she was bullied when she was young. She posted about her life before she started acting and revealed that girls from her school did not like her and would say cruel things to her on a daily basis. We can’t imagine that anyone would act that way towards Dove now, but it just goes to show you that anyone can rise above bullying. Maybe this is why she is always trying to boost up her family, friends, and fans—she knows what it’s like to be discouraged, to be overlooked, to be disrespected and left out.
