During our Mary Poppins Returns and 25 Days of Christmas press junket, we had the opportunity to interview the cast of the show. They joined us during a holiday party. Between crafting, donating toys to Toys for Tots, and taking pictures, the stars (Insert names) answered our questions and shared their favorite things.
Get to Know Disney Channel’s Coop and Cami Ask the World
The Disney Channel’s Coop and Cami Ask the World is a live-action comedy series about Cooper and Cameron Wrather, two middle-school siblings who make nearly all of their decisions, both mundane and madcap, by crowdsourcing opinions from the millions of followers of Cooper’s online channel, Would You Wrather. Everyone in the family participates in WOULD YOU WRATHER – except for their oldest sister, Carrie, who doesn’t want anything to do with the channel. On the other hand, their little brother Ollie is always a willing test subject and even their mom, Jenna, wants in on the action. Along with Cooper’s best friend, Fred, the Wrathers will always adhere to their audience’s vote – crowd sourcing their lives, one question at a time.

The Coop and Cami’s cast’s favorite parts of Christmas
- Dakota’s favorite part is spending time with his family. He said, “I love just being able to spend time with friends and family during the holidays. I like decorating trees.“
- Fred enjoys decorating the Christmas tree and baking. “I love decorating the tree and putting up all the festive décor, and I also like baking stuff during Christmas, like the holidays.“
- Paxton looks forward to Christmas because it means he’ll get to see his grandma again. “My favorite part is my grandma comes home for Christmas. And that’s the one time of year I get to see my grandma.“
- Ruby shared her tradition that involves a neighbor, “The holidays are really just about spending time with family, but the thing that my family does every year is visit around the neighborhood. We have a crazy neighborhood, and they go all out like the front yard in our holiday episode. It’s like 10 times that but on every house, and so every year we go around to see all that.“
Finally we asked the Coop and Cami stars what they wanted for Christmas. They had a hard time coming up with an answer. Ruby said she”has everything she really wanted. “To my surprise, none of them are into video games, not even Fotynite. Dakota said that he’s really into his music. He chooses to filter out video games in order to help him focus on his creativity. Yes, he really said that!
For the Disney Channel Coop and Cami’s cast, the sky may be the limit but their feet are firmly on the ground. This holiday season, it’s great to see a cast that is kind, respectful and appreciative of all they have.
