One of the biggest contributions of the Disney conglomerate to the entertainment industry is the never-ending production of child stars. The more shows come to the screens, the more new stars are born. Asher Angel is one of the newest kids on the block.
Asher Angel Biography
Asher Angel, born into a Jewish family in the suburbs of Arizona known as Paradise Valley, is a fast-rising American child actor famous for his role in the Disney Channel series – Andi Mack. The child prodigy took a special interest in acting at the age of 5. Later, he was promised by his mother that he would be brought to Los Angeles if he “joined in”, which was later interpreted as 30 local shows.
The talented young man is also an enthusiastic musician and a skilled guitarist. Several plays, including The Little Mermaid, Seussical, Mary Poppins, and In the Woods at the Desert on the desert stage at the Scottsdale theaters were the prelude to Asher’s career. His mother kept her promise by bringing the teenage sensation to the city of stars – to Los Angeles, where his obvious talent was brought to the show.
He auditioned for the role of Jonah Beck in Andi Mack, and his exceptionally brilliant performance at the auditions scared off the other aspiring actors. After he got the role, Asher’s family moved to Utah to show solidarity with his family and facilitate his shooting.
Before his 14th birthday, he had already played roles in the TV shows Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. He has starred in the films Jolene, Hate from afar and How to do this voodoo?
Asher Angel is undoubtedly someone whose star is growing rapidly in Hollywood. This was made clear when it became known that he will play the role of Billy Watson in the DC Comics SHAZAM film adaptation, which is the next installment of the Dc Extended Universe.
The film follows the adventures of Billy Bastion and his discovery of the magic word Shazam! (an acronym for Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury), which turns him into the mighty Captain Marvel. The Shazam Project team includes director David F. Sandberg, producer Peter Safran, and Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke, who co-wrote the screenplay. Asher Angel hopes that the new Dc comic film will immediately become a household name and will go down in history like the Harry Potter series.
In 2017 Asher confirmed that he will not let his musical skills go to waste as he actively continues his music career, singing, playing and writing music. In June 2017 he had a live performance at the Future Disruptors showcase.
Asher Height and Age
Asher is small in stature (which is understandable given his age) and stands at a respectable height of 1.62 m (5 feet 4 inches). He is also quite light and weighs 43 kg. He was born on September 6, 2002, which makes him 15 years old.
Asher Angel’s Girlfriend
The chemistry between Asher Angel and his Andi colleague and Mack star Peyton Elizabeth Lee on TV is so enormous. What started as a crush in season 1 of the production has developed into something in real life. He was even quoted as saying that he and Peyton were close and she knew everything about him. He says Peyton is more like a sister but admits that feelings can be very different and complicated. It’s widely believed that the two of them like each other, but on the other hand, the entire cast is very closely connected. Fans try to make up the boyfriend/girlfriend thing, but the truth remains that the two are not together.
Asher Angels Family
Asher Dov Angel currently lives with his family. Asher is the oldest of three siblings, he has a younger brother and a younger sister. The brother’s name is Avi, while his sister’s name is London. Avi is very fashion-conscious and likes to model. He would love to do the catwalk and live in New York.
Asher’s mother Coco has helped her son in a very practical way to lead a balanced life. Coco joked that the family might only travel with Asher until he is married. For now, they are at home in Paradise Valley waiting to see how well the first season of Andi Mack is received.
Asher’s father Jodi Angel has always been the more traditional of the two and often reminded the children not to lose sight of education as the most important means of success and achievement.
