Feel-Good Interview: Pop star and Disney actor Kevin Quinn: 9 Things To Know About Him Including his Dream Singing Partner

By Markos Papadatos, #PowerJournalist
Kevin Quinn is a pop star, actor, Disney alum, and social media phenom. He is known for his starring role as Xander in the hit original Disney series Bunk'd, as well as for his roles in the original Disney movie Adventures in Babysitting and the 2021 Netflix movie A Week Away where he stars opposite Bailee Madison.
Quinn just released his new pop single "Blessed," and his upcoming CD "Real Me" will be out in January of 2024.  He shared nine exciting and interesting things about him.
Kevin Quinn's Favorite TV Series 
He listed Friends, South Park and The Office as his favorite series to binge-watch. Friends is my go-to and RIP Matthew Perry, that was a shock. I was very disheartened to hear that. I still watch that show all the time. I have to watch the same shows over and over again. It’s good for my anxiety,” he said. “The same holds true for The Office. That would also be my go-to. I’ve seen every episode at least 10 times. I also enjoy South Park just because I think it’s so absurd, and the comedy is so absurd, and it’s great.” 
Kevin's Favorite Movie 
He claimed that Silver Linings Playbook is his favorite movie of all time, which stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. 
Favorite Cheat Meal 
His favorite cheat meal is Indian food, namely Chicken tikka masala and curry. “That is my jam,” he admitted. 
Kevin Quinn's Motto to Live by 
Ironically enough, his favorite motto to live by comes from a lyric from his song “It’s About Time”: “Life’s too short to live like it’s going to be long,” he said. “It’s true though, at any moment, we can keel over and die tomorrow,” he admitted. “You need to live each day and each second like it’s your last. I’ve been trying to do that more.” 
Favorite Sports to Watch and to Play 
He revealed that his favorite sport to watch is ice hockey and noted that he is a big Chicago Blackhawks fan. “That’s my team, I got an ESPN+ subscription just to watch them,” he said. “This season is a good season for them, and I feel more confident.” 
Dream Collaboration Choices in Acting and Music 
Quinn listed Leonardo DiCaprio as his dream acting partner. “I grew up as a big fan of his,” he said. 
In music, he shared that he would love to do a dream duet with a female artist. “If I had to choose someone, it would be Taylor Swift, she’s on fire right now,” he said.
Superpower of Choice 
He listed flying as his superpower of choice. “If I have a dream where I am flying, then I don’t want to wake up; it’s the best thing ever,” he said. “If I could do that in real life, that would be so sick.” 
On His Life Now
On the title of the current chapter of his life, Quinn said, “Real Me.” Ironically enough, that is the title of the album. I am coming into myself more,” he said. “I feel like a reborn version of myself, and I hope I can inspire the fans to be the most authentic version of themselves.” 
Kevin Quinn's Definition of Success 
Regarding his definition of the word success, Quinn said, “When I first started in the industry, it would be a big role or a big contract, or a record deal. Success is not money or fame; I can tell you that. For me, as I get older, I’ve entered in a relationship with the most amazing woman, and we have a dog together. It’s cool to be responsible for another life, even if it’s a dog.” 
“This inspires me hopefully to someday become a father and be responsible for my kids’ lives and I am looking forward to that. Success to me is about the love and happiness that I bring into my home,” he added.
