“I remember being on Shake It Up and saying, ‘I’m not going to do this. I’m going to kiss him on the cheek because I haven’t been kissed yet, so I don’t want the kiss to be on camera,'” the 25-year-old actor recalled.
The Euphoria star starred in the Disney Channel comedy Shake It Up alongside Bella Thorne from 2010 to 2013.
