We are so excited for the second part of K.C. Undercover‘s season one finale to premiere on Disney Channel!
With just a few hours left ’till it airs, CelebSecrets4U is giving you the inside scoop on what to expect from the big episode straight from Kamil McFadden, who plays Ernie Cooper on the series. Ernie Cooper is K.C.’s (Zendaya) pesky but endearing younger brother. He’s a genius when it comes to computers and hacking firewalls but is pretty clumsy at everything else.
In the season finale titled “K.C. and Brett: The Final Chapter,” Brett is back and his assignment is to eliminate K.C.! But when he can’t bring himself to complete his mission, K.C. decides to help protect him from The Other Side. Tonight in the second part of the finale, K.C. (Zendaya) enlists her family to help Brett (Ross Butler) escape from The Other Side. The Coopers find themselves in danger with enemy agents and The Organization.
In our interview with Kamil, the 19-year-old actor shares his favorite memory from filming the season one finale and why we should be tuning in this evening! He even opens up about how Ernie grows from season one to season two and the meaning behind his hashtag #MelaninMonday — make sure to read the full Q&A below!
The season one finale of K.C. Undercover airs TONIGHT, January 24th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
CS4U: You post #MelaninMonday on your Instagram as well as include it in your Twitter bio. Can you explain to us where that came from and what your are trying to do with this hashtag?
Kamil McFadden: “#MelaninMonday came from something I saw online. With the hashtag, I’m trying to promote love and positivity. Society doesn’t like to accept people’s difference, but this movement praises each other’s skin tones and celebrates being an individual.”
CS4U: You are often posting online about charities and going to charity events, what cause is the one that means the most to you?
Kamil McFadden: “It’s called Jingle All The Way. It involves reading to children and I’ve been named co-chair of the charity. Children are our future so I do what I can to sow into them and inspire them to be great.”
CS4U: Your character, Ernie, is the family computer genius. If you were in a family of spies, what skill would you contribute to the team?
Kamil McFadden: “I feel like if I was in a family of spies my contribution would be anything that requires someone with my small stature and my quickness.”
CS4U: Season 1 of KC Undercover is coming to a close this weekend — what can we expect from the finale episode?
Kamil McFadden: “From the season 1 finale, you can expect more action, more drama, and character breakthroughs.”
CS4U: Do you have a favorite episode and memory from season 1?
Kamil McFadden: “My favorite episode of season 1 is the season finale part 2. My favorite memory is when we were finished filming a scene we got ice cream and Tammy started singing Rolling On A River. It was so much fun!”
CS4U: Season 2 is coming back to Disney this spring. What can we expect from it? How has Ernie grown from season 1 to season 2?
Kamil McFadden: “From season 2, you can expect a lot of readjustment. The Coopers are in a situation they haven’t been before. There are also quite a few surprises on the upcoming season. Ernie definitely has grown when it comes to where he stands on the team. He is more of a contributor and he develops new relationships at school as well.”
CS4U: Since our website is called CelebSecrets4U, can you share a secret about yourself that fans wouldn’t know about you?
Kamil McFadden: “My hidden talent is I can recite the alphabet backwards.”
