Disney Channel star meets with fans in East Tennessee

GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Sevier County is becoming quite the destination for Disney Channel stars to meet with fans.

Blake Michael, who plays Tyler on "Dog with a Blog," stopped by Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies Saturday afternoon.

Although this is Michael's first trip to Tennessee, he says he loves the southern hospitality.

For those kids looking to appear on TV, he shared a little advice.

"A lot of work, effort, stress, traveling, auditioning, being judged, and being told 'no' goes into this. So, it just takes a lot of hard work and dedication," he said.

Michael says he is hoping to launch a career in music later this year.

He says his ultimate aspiration is to be a director.
