One of the biggest contributions of the Disney conglomerate to the entertainment industry is its unending production of Child stars. As more shows hit the screens, so are new stars. Asher Angel is one of the newest kids on the block.
Asher Angel Biography
Born into a Jewish family in the suburbs of Arizona known as the Paradise Valley, Asher Angel is a fast-rising American Child actor who is 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. He was subsequently promised by his mother to be taken to Los Angeles if he “put in the work” which was later interpreted as doing 30 local shows.
The talented youngster is also an avid musician and a skilled guitar player. Doing multiple plays which included The little mermaid, Seussical, Mary Poppins and into the Woods at the Desert stage at the theatres in Scottsdale kickstarted Asher’s career. His mother subsequently kept her promise by taking the teen sensation to the city of stars -Los Angeles, where his evident talent was put on the show.
He auditioned for the role of Jonah Beck in Andi Mack and his exceptionally brilliant performance at the auditions put off the challenge of other aspiring actors. After he landed the role, in an effort to show some family solidarity, Asher’s family moved out to Utah to accommodate and facilitate his filming schedules.
Before his 14th birthday, he has already had roles on the television shows Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. He’s been in the movies Jolene, Hate from a Distance and How do you do that Voodoo?
Asher Angel is certainly someone whose star is growing rapidly in Hollywood, this was depicted clearly when it was announced that he was to play the role of Billy Watson in the film adaptation of DC Comics SHAZAM which is the further instalment to 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) that transforms him into the mighty Captain Marvel. The team on the Shazam project include director David F. Sandberg, producer Peter Safran, and Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke, co-writing the screenplay. Asher Angel would be hoping that the new Dc Comics flick becomes an instant household name and blows up like the Harry Potter series.
As at 2017, Asher confirmed that he wasn’t going to let his music skills go untapped, actively pursuing his music career, singing, playing and writing music. He had a live performance at the Future Disruptors showcase in June 2017.
Asher Height and Age
Asher has a small stature (which is understandable considering his age) and stands at a respectable height of 5 feet 4 inches which is approximately 1.62m. He is also quite light and weighs 43kg. He was born on the 6th of September 2002, making him 15 years old.
Asher Angel’s Girlfriend
Asher Angel has such a huge chemistry on TV with fellow Andi and Mack star Peyton Elizabeth Lee. What started as a crush in Season 1 of the production has blossomed into something in real life. He was even quoted as saying that he and Peyton were really close and she knew literally everything about him. He says Peyton is more like a sister but admits the feelings can be a lot different and complicated. It’s widely believed that the pair like each other but then again, the entire cast is very close. Fans try to fabricate the boyfriend/girlfriend thing but the truth remains that the two are not dating.
Asher Angels Family
Asher Dov Angel currently lives with his family. Asher is the oldest of three siblings, he has a younger brother and sister. The brother’s name is Avi while his sister’s name is London. Avi is very into fashion and likes to model. He would like to do the runway and live in New York.
Asher’s mum Coco has had a very hands-on approach to helping her son live a balanced life, Coco has made jokes that the family may just be travelling with Asher until he’s married. For now, they’re 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, often reminding the kids not to lose focus on education as the major means to success and achievement.
