Charlie's first on-set memory with Runt costar Cameron happened early on during shooting, and Cameron would tell stories about what it was like to work with Adam Sandler in Grown Ups. 1091 Media / Via youtube.com Charlie shared, "He told me everything, every stupid little question I had. The kid had one of the biggest hearts. He was so nice to everyone around him. You can't not leave with a little bit of inspiration from that." 2. Charlie said the first time he met his Julie and the Phantoms costars (Madison Reyes, Owen Joyner, and Jeremy Shada), it was so seamless, and he felt as if they fit together "like train tracks."

And these three boys come in and make all these jokes, and she would just pick it up and throw it back. She was knocking it out of the park. She wasn't shy, she was one of us, and Jer was one of us, and Owen was one of us." 3. Charlie's first job was as a clothing and accessory salesperson, and he worked alongside his uncle.

He even joked, "I had a great sales pitch — I would oversell. I was just this little kid being like, 'Wow! You look beautiful in that dress.'" 4. One of the first times he was ever starstruck was when he saw John Mayer perform live.

He was also super starstruck after seeing Penguins player Sidney Crosby at the Andrews Hockey School in Prince Edward Island. Bruce Bennett / Getty Images He joked, "He comes onto the ice, and the whole crowd went 'Woo!' He was skating around and doing these tricks on the ice, and everyone was like, 'That's Sidney Crosby!' We were all freaking out." 6. One day while he was at the beach with his dog, a group of girls recognized him as Luke from Julie and the Phantoms, and they began to cry because they were so excited to meet him.

And so she starts screaming at her friends like, 'Come here, you guys, come!' She's like, 'This guy is Luke from Julie and the Phantoms!' And then the other girl turns around and starts crying: 'I love you so much, I love this show!'" 7. The first role he wanted but didn't get was a jazz pianist in a film called Flock of Four.

Charlie's first celebrity crush was Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Walt Disney Co. / Everett Collection He joked, "She was so cute with her red hair, and she could sing, 'Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?' And you'd just be like, 'Yeah, it's so cool! Go for it!'" 9. And finally, Charlie actually had to rerecord "Unsaid Emily" for JATP because the first time he recorded the song, he actually blew out his voice. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @charles_gillespie He revealed, "It was the first song I recorded. I was so stressed, you guys. I was on voice rest for two weeks. I was not allowed to talk because I had sung too many songs before, rehearsing without any proper training, and I kinda blew out my voice." Be sure to catch Charlie in Runt, which is currently playing in select theaters.
