Asher Angel

Asher Angel became interested in acting at the age of five, and appeared in the 2008 film Jolene. At the age of seven, Desert Stages Theatre held auditions for musical Oliver and Angel auditioned and won a role in the production. His mother promised to take him to Los Angeles if he "put in the work and [did] 30 [local] shows", and he went on to act in multiple plays including The Little Mermaid, Seussical, Mary Poppins, and Into the Woods at the Desert Stages Theatre in Scottsdale. His mother kept her promise, and Angel traveled to Los Angeles where, at age 12, he auditioned for and won the part of Jonah Beck in the Disney Channel television series Andi Mack. His whole family moved to Utah to accommodate filming for the series.

Angel recently starred as the lead role of Billy Batson, with Zachary Levi playing his adult superhero alter-ego, in the film adaptation of DC Comics' Shazam!, which is a further installment to the DC Extended Universe.
