“Me and my parents met with her and I think my parents had a very good balance in terms of being protective, in terms of, ‘Okay, we are not well versed in this world. We know there is all sorts of stuff that goes on, especially for a young person.’ To also being like, ‘We know this is what you want to do. We want to support you and what you want to do.’ And so one of the first things [Kéllé] said to me was, ‘Oh, Disney will eat you all up.’ I remember it so, so clearly, which is just crazy to me because that was not only the first job that I got was with Disney Channel, but then, you know, I have bit of a history with Disney!” exclaimed Scott.

“We’ve all been there when you feel uncomfortable or you’re not sure about something and if you speak up you’re kind of made to feel like, ‘Oh you’re being a bit difficult’ and I would just say it’s never going to be as bad as you think,” said the actress.

“You have to listen to that gut feeling and speak up if you don’t feel comfortable. You need to make sure you protect yourself and do whatever it is you need in order to do your job,” she added.
