Valentine, of Crossing Jordan fame, plays a magician in Wizards Of Waverly Place The Movie, premiering Friday (Aug. 28) on the Disney Channel.
His character accidentally changes his girlfriend into a parrot, which left Valentine working closely with a bird for the entire flick.
Ruby the parrot was perched on his shoulder the whole time, and the pair got so close Valentine found himself having full-on conversations with the bird.
Hed tell his parrot girlfriend she looked lovely and shed squawk back, acknowledging their connection.
Valentine says Ruby was a classy lady and never once pooped on him while filming, though she did nibble on his ear out of fright during a scene where he ran with her through the forest.
While the duo have parted ways, Valentine hopes they can flock together again someday if Rubys big-time agent will allow it.
