David Henrie may only be 21-years-old, but he's already got an Emmy, a writing credit and a hit show under his belt.
The "Wizards of Waverly Place" star is featured on the cover of My Touch magazine, where he opens up about his family, his goals, and more. David was also just named the United Way's national youth spokesperson for early education.
On working with Disney: Disney has been my family for the past four seasons of the show, and I feel blessed and hopeful to continue the relationship with Disney into the next step . . . the feature film world. Relationships are important to maintain, just as it has been throughout the four seasons on Wizards. Everyone on the show has been very supportive of one another, on and off
set, which I believe is key to the show's success and gave us a genuine family bond.
On growing up" What is good is defined by the beholder, and everyone has a different definition of what good is,"But if you come up with a moral system of what is right or wrong, whether it's religious or spiritual, or however you define it, practice what you preach. I believe that's what growing up is, and that's what becoming a man is, and that's what I've always been trying to do in my life and what I will continue to do as I get older.
On improv: What's great about improv is that you can use it in all different facets of life. You're pretty much riding in the moment, so it teaches you to be creative and live in the moment.
On moving back home: We get along real well, so I've got an awesome situation
at home-home-cooked meals, bed made in the morning, and any house I could lease is not going to be as cool as the one my parents live in. I really have no problem being there at all. Plus, my little brother's my best friend. When it comes to being a big brother, I'm definitely tough with him.
I kick him in the butt. But I'm a good big brother to him. And I'm his biggest fan.
On his goals: One of my goals is to live morally appropriate to the finest set of rules I can find. I'm going to do what I feel is right in my heart, and be my own person, and that's how I will continue to lead.
David is working on his directorial debut, Bliss, which is a short film that will star his little brother Lorenzo. The short film will be set amid the world of teen actors and will reflect what they've seen can go wrong with their contemporaries who are more influenced by peer pressure than family. David will also be writing another episode of Wizards as well as producing a bunch of projects.
There are some very exciting things happening for David. We can't wait!
