Why Two Nickelodeon Stars Decided to Go Public About Their Romance
Jace Norman has over 750k followers on Instagram, was nominated for a Kids’ Choice Award as Favorite TV Actor and is on one of Nickelodeon’s biggest TV shows, meaning that he has some seriously passionate fans. That being said, when he first ~confirmed~ he was dating fellow Nick star Isabela Moner, the world freaked the eff out. But while the 16-year-old wanted to share his happiness, he was a bit nervous about fans’ reactions.
“Honestly, I was a little bit worried about how they would react,” he recently told us when he recently stopped by for a chat “They’re my fans and obviously I want them to be happy, but it’s my life and if they don’t like it, there’s nothing I can do.”
So what made the young actors decide to go public? Nothing really! Jace explained:
“It’s not like there was this strategic decision we made, or a major discussion, it’s just a normal thing. I think everyone who follows me wants to know more about my life, and so it’s not something I am going to hide just because some people may get upset.”
Now, both Jace and Isabela post pictures together all. the. time, and fans have gotten used to seeing the couple looking completely ADORBS on social media. But when he’s not uploading photos with his beautiful girlfriend, the actor also likes to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at his life.
“I know some people are more private on Instagram, but it’s my life and I want to share it and be real. I don’t want to hide it or anything, unless it’s super personal. My relationship isn’t like a personal thing. its just a thing in my life right now. I have friends and post pics with them and I have a girlfriend and will post pictures with her.”
Obviously, a lot of Jace’s life revolves around Henry Danger, but despite the hectic schedule, he’s totally thankful to be a part of it.
“It’s really special to be a part of this show. The stars of [Dan Schneider’s] past shows come to visit and Nathan Kress from iCarly directs sometimes. It’s just a big family here.”
That very “family” has opened up tons of doors for Jace and has given him some amazing stories to tell… like the time he got super starstruck around a pro athlete!
“I met Steph Curry at Nickeoldeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards and it was awesome! I talked to him about his daughter Riley, actually. I feel like people would expect him to have a big personality, but he’s just a normal dude. I definitely got the most starstruck around him, though.”
The most exciting thing happening in Henry Danger’s life is about to happen, though! In an upcoming epic cross-over episode with The Thundermans, Captain Man, Kid Danger & Phoebe Thunderman infiltrate a secret villain meeting in Swellview where the villains plan to destroy Captain Man and Kid Danger. At the meeting Phoebe discovers an unexpected attendee, her brother Max.
