Check out our interview with 'A.N.T Farm' star
Welcome back to Celebuzz’s Meet & Greet, where we sit down and chat with rising young stars of film, television and music before they hit the big time. Watch out for these future A-listers!

We have been telling you all about Disney’s new show A.N.T Farm, which airs Friday’s at 8:30 pm on the Disney Channel, and it’s time for you to get to know another one of the stars! Sierra McCormick plays Olive Doyle, an 11-year-old student in the Advanced Natural Talents program who has a photographic memory.

So tell us, how did you get the role? 
Well I auditioned, of course, I auditioned because I worked with China on a previous pilot that never really got to see the light of day, called Jack and Janet Save the Planet. So they brought me in for this, because she had already been cast for Chyna. So I guess since I’ve played her best friend before it was easy to go through the process. We were already good friends so I guess the chemistry was already there so I got the part!

That’s great! So what are some of the favorite things about your character?
I love how smart she is and I love all the fun stuff she knows- like all the fun random stuff.

Do you think you are like her?
In a way, I’d say my memory isn’t like hers, but I’d say I have a pretty decent memory.

You already have an impressive acting resume! Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years, lets see ill be 23, and I definitely see myself still acting, and probably in college as well.

Who are some of your idols in the industry?
Natalie Portman, Ellen Page- I love her as an actress, that’s when it comes to acting ability. I also just love James Franco! Love him.

What sets you apart from Disney stars like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez who have come before you?
I think what sets me apart is that I am really happy to be here, I’m just so glad that I here because I think it’s a really good opportunity for me and I’m just having so much fun.

What do you like to do for fun?
I like to hang out with my friends and family of course, and I also like to go shopping. I love to read- you know the usuals. Pretty Little Liars and The Hunger Games. I haven’t read all of The Hunger Games series yet!
