13 Crazy Disney Channel Rumors That Were Proven False
Ross Lynch and Laura Marano from Austin & Ally also dated in real life
It’s no secret that practically every Austin & Ally fan shipped Ross and Laura as a real-life couple. But since the two are close friends in real life, it only took a few cutesy pics of them on social media for fans to start jumping to conclusions. Though it makes sense that their real-life bond made their on-screen romance more believable, fans went as far as taking this as a sign that they were definitely dating.
Laura, however, cleared things up and stated that she, as well as the rest of the cast, made a pact to not date any costars. She explained: “I think it’s very much because we are very professional. I know for me — I’ve been acting since I was 5 — I’ve always been taught that you really should never date a costar while you’re working with someone because then you can get together then not get together. Can you imagine?” …Yeah, that would be way too awkward. Just ask actors like Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder.
