The actress spent time away from her loved ones while filming her new show in Canada.
Dove Cameron had a life-changing experience while away from her friends and family during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a new interview with People, the 25-year-old actress opened up about how spending time away from her loved ones when filming her upcoming Apple TV+ series in Canada in 2020 forced her to confront many unresolved issues.
"I had to go through so many dark nights of the soul", she told the magazine. "But because I was alone and there was nowhere else for me to go, I could not escape myself. And I was dealing with things I hadn't faced."
Isolation, Cameron said, compelled her to process her split from ex-boyfriend Thomas Doherty as well as the tragic deaths of her father a decade earlier and her best friend Cameron Boyce in 2019.
"Whenever you go through a big loss, it drums up every other loss", the star said, adding that she began to record "theraphy-sessions" into her phone as a way of navigating her grief.
"I was facing my demons all at once", she explained.
Still, the Liv & Maddie alum said that going through that experience gave her a whole new perspective on life and assured that she's now feeling better than ever.
"I found this sense of self. I'm living alone, I'm single for the first time and I just feel born again", she shared. "My capacity for happiness is so much greater because of my past."
