As Disney Channel’s Liv and Maddie comes close to its series finale, the show’s star Dove Cameron is recalling the heartfelt advice she received from one of the network’s biggest alums: Selena Gomez.

The 21-year-old actress tells PEOPLE that she was around the age of 16 — close to the time she filmed the show’s first season — when she and Gomez met up in the “It Ain’t Me” singer’s home.

“She was so lovely … We ended up just, like, barefoot on the floor in her kitchen,” Cameron says. “She was, like, ‘[The] most important thing is that you never deviate from your authenticity. You’re just open, you’re bare with your fans.’ ”

Cameron adds: “I have fully taken that in stride and I think that’s such a universal thing that really holds up and I would give that advice to anyone.”

Cameron had nothing but praise for Gomez, who she calls an “angel.” The actress adds of Gomez: “She’s the most amazing human.”

After nearly four years on the air, the popular Disney show is coming to an end — and Cameron says the final few episodes of the series are “really dramatic.”

“These last five episodes are, like, insanely emotional,” she reveals. “When I read the last episodes, they’re so beautiful. They answer every question. They wrap it up perfectly. I’m really proud of them.”
