Seventeen-year-old Austin North is on the way to becoming a household name with his Disney Channel show, I Didn’t Do It. Here are 10 fun facts every aspiring fan should know.
Following in the footsteps of heartthrobs like Zac Efron and Shia LaBeouf, Austin North has joined Disney Channel. The young actor stars in the series, I Didn’t Do It, which follows the story of two fraternal twins Logan (North) and Lindy (Olivia Holt) Watson as they navigate their freshman year of high school. Though the 17-year-old actor is on his rise to fame, he filled us in on 10 facts you should know before he becomes a household name.

In fact, his Facebook and Twitter accounts both mention the food.
“I would go into a yogurt shop and put every single topping on my yogurt,” North tells us.

He’s looking forward to the return.
“I would love to be on that show,” North said. “That would be awesome.”
3. Things he hates
The first thing he hates is when people he’s with walk too slowly. The second is when he wakes up and his throat is too dry, so he needs water in the morning. The last is when people cut him off in traffic.
4. He’s grounded
Despite the growing fame, North and Holt credit their families with keeping them grounded.

7. The best present he’s ever received is a drum set from his grandmother
“Drumming’s just one of those things that you can’t really put a price on,” North said. “It’s just one of those things that I love to do and I’m very passionate about now. I’m just so happy that she gave me the drum set and sparked something.”
