Now that the second season of Disney Channel’s Andi Mack is back in full swing, you’ll be seeing a lot more of Asher Angel on your tv screen!

The actor, who plays Jonah Beck on Disney’s popular show, recently caught up with Teen Daily to chat about his music, his career goals and what TV show he’s loving right now.

Asher’s Career Goals

While Asher has been busy working on Andi Mack, the actor revealed that he has big plans when it comes to his career.

“I just want to keep working as much as possible,” he said. “It’s what I love to do and I just want to keep working because I love it.”

As for the type of work he wants to do, Asher says that he wants to do: “everything. I want to be able to do music, theatre, and TV as well.”

Asher also dished on the actors that he admires, saying:

“I really look up to Robert De Niro [and] Ryan Gosling, but I think my top number one would have to be Leonardo DiCaprio. I love Leonardo DiCaprio. Sometimes, I would go into auditions and after I finished my scene they’d be like, ‘Oh, you remind me of a young Leonardo DiCaprio!’ I’m like ‘What?!’ I just freak out, I love him so much.”

Asher’s Music Plans:

Asher also has some other new projects in the works that he’s excited to share with his fans.

“A lot of my fans are now realizing that I sing and I love music,” Asher said, “and so all my fans have been asking me, ‘When are you going to release your music?’”

“I just want to tell them that I know it’s been a wait, but it’s going to happen very, very soon. I’m just over the top excited for them to hear it,” he said.

Other Things Asher is Loving:

Like many other teens, Asher is also sure to make time for fun — especially when it’s with his family and co-stars.

“I do a lot of things, honestly,” he said. “I hang out with my family. There’s an Olympic park up there that we go to where they have rope courses, [and] bobsledding in the winter. It’s great.”

“I would say the winters are the best part. When we’re filming in the winter, there’s snow everywhere and [I do] snowball fights with my family, [and] with the Andi Mack cast,” he said.

When he’s not hanging out with his family and friends, Asher also likes catching up on some of his favourite shows.

“I am obsessed with Stranger Things,” he sai. “It’s actually really funny because our season 2 and their season 2 comes out the same day, October 27th. That’s my biggest obsession right now, I’m ready to watch season 2 of that show.”

You can catch Asher in the new season of Andi Mack, airing Friday nights at 8 P.M. on the Disney Channel!

Season two of Disney Channel’s Andi Mack is almost here!

The celebrate Andi Mack‘s new season, we caught up with one of the show’s stars, Asher Angel, to find out all about what’s to come in season two.

However, the finale also teased some other relationships that were growing stronger — namely those between Buffy (Sofia Wylie) and Marty (Garren Stitt), and Bex (Lilan Bowden) and Bowie (Trent Garrett).

So, what’s going to happen to Andi and her friends and family when the show picks back up again?

“I don’t really want to give anything away,” Asher told Teen Daily about the new season. “I’m just gonna say a lot more fun, [and] a lot more secrets.”

What’s to come for Jonah Beck in Season 2

Asher did, however, reveal a little more about his character, Jonah Beck, who went through several ups and downs with his friendship with Andi during season one.

“During season one, he was kind of oblivious I would say,” he said. “He didn’t really know what was going on around him, and I think now [in season 2] he actually knows that he can hurt someone.”

Asher also revealed that he feels close to Jonah Beck because the two share many similarities.

“He’s a popular, charming guy,” Asher said. “Pretty thoughtful, sensitive and people really love him and the energy that he brings to the table. And that’s kind of like me, I’m totally energetic all the time. He’s just a blast to play.”

“I’m [also] really thoughtful and I really care about people,” Asher added.

Working on Andi Mack

While Asher is enjoying his time working on the show, the actor also revealed that his friendship with the Andi Mack cast is what makes the show so fun.

“The cast and the crew obviously are amazing, we’re all just so close,” Asher said. “Josh (Joshua Rush), he’s like my brother, Peyton’s like my sister, and we just do everything together. I know we’re together every day, but when we’re not together we miss each other so much. We’re just so close.”

As for Asher’s favourite episode that he got to film with the cast in season one, he said: “Episode four, it’s the party episode. [It was] so much fun. Extras were everywhere, it was a party, [and] we had Silly String and were silly stringing each other.”

Asher’s dream Andi Mack guest star

While Asher loves spending time with his castmates on-set, the actor also revealed that he knows just who he’d love to see as a guest star in the future. “If I could have anyone guest star, I think I’m gonna have to go with David Henrie from Wizards of Waverly Place,” he said. “He’s just a really cool guy and I think if he guest starred, he could come in as Jonah Beck’s older brother. I think David Henrie would be a good fit to the show.”

You can catch Asher in the one-hour season 2 premiere of Andi Mack this Friday, October 27, at 8 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel!
