Asher An­gel

Girlfriend - - STAN GIRL -

Ac­tor, singer and all round cutie Asher An­gel is one to watch. The 16-year-old is pro­duc­ing qual­ity tunes all while ap­pear­ing in Dis­ney se­ries Andi Mack. He also stars in the up­com­ing su­per­hero movie Shazam! with Zachary Levi.

GF: What was your favourite part of film­ing sea­son three of Andi Mack?

Re­con­nect­ing with all my friends on set and hav­ing story lines that let me act and sing in the same episode.

GF: The se­ries deals with is­sues in­clud­ing teen preg­nancy. How does it feel to be part of a show that ad­dresses these sub­jects?

I feel lucky to be able to con­trib­ute to a show that dis­cusses rel­e­vant top­ics. One of the things that I ad­mire most about the show is its re­lata­bil­ity.

GF: Is there a pos­si­ble de­but EP or al­bum in the works? Ab­so­lutely – I am work­ing on that now. My fans can ex­pect dy­namic pop with cool melodies and some­thing I hope they can all sing along with. GF: How was the ex­pe­ri­ence of film­ing Shazam! ? Bucket-list amaz­ing. Work­ing on a big bud­get su­per­hero pro­duc­tion felt like a dream. I have al­ways been a su­per­hero fan. I re­mem­ber when my dad showed me his col­lec­tion of comic books. We read a bunch of them to­gether – in­clud­ing Shazam! GF: What would your su­per­power be? It was fly­ing, but these days Zachary Levi has me pretty much con­vinced that tele­por­ta­tion is the way to go. GF: How do you deal with haters on so­cial me­dia? It amazes me that peo­ple feel so com­fort­able say­ing such mean things be­hind the anonymity of a com­puter. What’s re­mark­able is that these peo­ple have the choice to say any­thing they want and choose neg­a­tive, hate­ful words. It re­in­forces me to never be that per­son.
