Disney Channel is keeping the laughs going on Sundays with their new original series, I Didn't Do It. Olivia Holt and Austin North star as siblings Lindy and Logan, who constantly have to explain their way out of strange situations. BFTV spoke with Austin on Friday about the series and his emerging career with Disney.

"A lot of crazy disasters are happening," Austin laughed, teasing the first season of I Didn't Do It, which just started airing last week. "This next episode, coming up on Sunday, there's spaghetti sauce that gets thrown on just about everybody in the cast. The next episode after that, we go skydiving."

Check out a clip from today's episode using the embedded media player with this article, and tune in to Disney Channel to see what happens next.

Austin has spent most of his career so far working with Disney, including guest spots on A.N.T. Farm and Kickin' It, but this is the first series on which he's been front and center. "It's been amazing, really. It's a dream," he told us of getting his first starring part. "One of my main goals was to book a series regular [role], on Disney preferably, and it's crazy just to see the process."

"It's kind of like a family," he continued. "My first Disney role was on Kickin' It and then they just had me come in for other stuff."

That first role also introduced him to Olivia Holt, one of the stars of Kickin' It, who now plays Austin's on-screen sibling. "I met her like three years ago and we've been friends ever since," Austin told us. "We've kind of got this brother-sister relationship in real life."

And that friendship extends to the rest of the I Didn't Do It cast as well. "Ever since the day we met, we've all hit it off," he added. "We hang out on and off the set."

When he's not playing Logan, Austin has other talents that you might not know about. "[Playing the] drums is a big one of them," he said. "I'd love to incorporate some of my drumming into the show. I love just staying active; I lift weights a lot and I go and play basketball."

And you might just catch him checking out his own show. "I'll watch it. I'm very critical of myself though," he admitted. "I'll sit there and look at every little thing that I do. But I do watch it and I learn from watching it."

What else does he watch? "I'm really into like streaming movies and Netflix. I watch a lot of just random stuff," Austin said. "I do love action movies. I love the TV show 24 with Jack Bauer. I also love comedies as well. I'm kind of just like an anything kind of guy."

I Didn't Do It airs Sundays on Disney Channel; check your local listings for specific airtime and channel. For more on Austin, you can visit his website (austinnorth.com) and follow him on Twitter (@AustinNorth55).
