Disney Channel/Eric McCandless

While we are so excited that new episodes of BUNK’D are on Disney Channel, a lot has changed for the Ross siblings since we last saw them.

In the new season, Emma (Peyton List), Ravi (Karan Brar) and Zuri Ross (Skai Jackson) eagerly return to Camp Kikiwaka ready to forge new friendships and memories as counselors, only to discover several cabins were never rebuilt after the fire and previous owner Gladys has absconded with the insurance money.

With hopes of building a bigger and better camp solely operated by kids, the Ross siblings convince their parents to buy Kikiwaka and put them in charge. Now, Zuri, Ravi and Emma, along with fellow teen instructor Lou (Miranda May), work together to create summer magic for the younger kids, including new tween campers Matteo (Raphael Alejandro), Destiny (Mallory James Mahoney) and Lou’s little cousin Finn (Will Buie, Jr.).

Celeb Secrets caught up with Will Buie Jr. recently to get the inside scoop on what it’s like playing Finn and working on Bunk’d with some of your favorite Disney Channel stars!

Make sure to read the full Q&A below and catch new episodes of BUNK’D every Monday and Friday morning at 9AM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Celeb Secrets: What was it like when you met the original Bunk’d co-stars for the very first time?

Will Buie, Jr.: “I was really excited to meet everyone, especially Skai! We shared a homeroom together and she was so nice. She made me feel very welcome.”

Celeb Secrets: Were there any cast members you really got along with right away?

Will Buie, Jr.: “Yes. Mallory James Mahoney and I really got along because we both live outside of LA. Mallory is a great friend and I’m so happy I got to spend so much time with her.  

Raphael Alejandro is now one of my best friends and we talk to each other. One time, we played sports in the park and drove our parents crazy playing Uno and singing and dancing in my dressing room!”

Celeb Secrets: Have you ever had any funny bloopers during filming?

Will Buie, Jr.: “I have allergies and I sneezed a lot during filming. I have a really loud sneeze too. It was pretty funny and a little embarrassing.”

Celeb Secrets: What’s your favorite thing about playing Finn, and are you like him at all in real life?

Will Buie, Jr.: “My favorite thing about Finn is that he’s a fun guy, likes to explore and has a lot of energy. In that way I am very much like him. Finn also is messy and doesn’t mind getting dirty, that is one way where Finn and I are different.”

Celeb Secrets: Who are some of your acting role models?

Will Buie, Jr.: “Ross Lynch is one of my favorite actors. I loved watching him on Austin and Ally and really enjoy his music.”

Celeb Secrets: Have you ever gotten any advice from any of the actors you’ve worked with?

Will Buie, Jr.: “Yes! I enjoyed learning from all of the directors on Bunk’d. The best advice I have been given is from one of my favorite directors, Bob Koherr, ‘Make sure you’re always having fun.'”

Celeb Secrets: For Celeb Secrets, would you be able to share a fun secret about a project you’ve worked on?

Will Buie, Jr.: “Well, I think its ok if I share this, but Finn picks his nose and names his boogers in the first episode of Bunk’d Season 3. It’s a little gross but very funny.”
