Dezmond "Dez" is a 15-year-old aspiring director who films everything that he can. He filmed Austin singing Ally's song, Double Take, and posted it online. His best friend is Austin. Dez easily annoys Trish a lot, but he never knows what he does wrong, and the two are currently frenemies. He has shown that he may have feelings for her in some episodes, as he is always nice to Trish. He also filmed the short horror-adventure-drama-action-thriller, Claws: Dun Dun Dun .
Dez is portrayed by Calum Worthy.
Dez is a funny, random, crazy, awkward, sometimes disgusting, clumsy, and quirky guy. He is Austin’s best friend and he also directs Austin's music videos. His weird habit of pulling anything and everything out of his backpack (like a ham, a turtle, an Abraham Lincoln ice-sculpture or jam, etc.) amuses his friends. He really is one-of-a-kind. He has red hair, and often notices when people or things look different, but he can never figure out what has changed. He can eat things that would be considered gross or inedible to most people. In other words, he is mostly in his "own little world." He also seems to be "easy going" sometimes, as he can also be sensitive. He is also shown to be very strong, as shown in World Records & Work Wreckers, when he can spin a basketball, hold three boxes and a birthday cake, at the same time. He is brutally honest whether characters ask him for his opinion or not. He also stated once that he never breaks a promise. Even though he is a bit wacky, he still has his moments where he shows intelligence, i.e. in Albums & Auditions where he explained to Trish and Austin about their misguided anger towards Ally for leaving.
