Are you familiar with Dove Cameron? The fresh-faced blonde is best known for her work on the Disney Channel. She currently stars as both title characters in the fourth and final season of Liv and Maddie, and she will reprise the role of Mal, Maleficent’s daughter, in the upcoming Descendants sequel.

On Liv and Maddie, Cameron plays twin sisters who are total opposites, and in a new interview and photo shoot with Galore magazine, the actress reveals two sides to her own personality. She says, “So much of what I’m about is positivity and really keeping your thoughts and intentions pure,“ while also confessing her love for playing evil characters. “I think the villains, all across the board, are always more interesting people. I always loved Maleficent because she’s the most evil of them all, and if you’re going to like a villain, you might as well go all in.”

Cameron turned 21 on January 15, and told the magazine she’s excited about getting older. She celebrated her birthday in Las Vegas with vodka, a few martinis and a tiny new tattoo. Though Cameron says she’s often mistaken for a sixteen year old, she looks all grown up in her Galore pictorial. In the gorgeous images, Cameron channels Marilyn Monroe and looks both sweet and sultry. The photos were shot by Galore’s founders, creative duo Prince + Jacob, and they do the perfect job of capturing Cameron’s transition from child star to starlet.
