Asher Angel’s Bio
Angel was born as Asher Dov Angel on 6th September 2002 in Arizona, USA. Although he holds the American nationality, he belongs to the Jewish ethnic background. He has been raised in Paradise Valley, Arizona by his mother Coco Angel and his father, Jody Angel.
Asher is the eldest of his two siblings: a brother named Avi and a sister named London. Like him, his brother Avi is also an upcoming actor. He also very interested in fashion and modeling and has hopes that he will one day walk the runway and live in New York.
There’s not much information that has been revealed about his education. However, due to his busy acting career, it is clear that Asher and his family are often moving from Arizona to Utah and back.
According to the Arizona Jewish Life, his two siblings are enrolled in small private schools both in Arizona and Utah –and they usually switch schools depending on their current location. Following his rather busy schedule, it is easy to assume that his educational experience is close to that of his siblings.
Being Jewish, Asher’s family is also very religious. While in Utah, Asher has attended the Park City Synagogue and the Mormon Church alongside his family members.
Asher Angel’s Career –rise to stardom
Asher’s mother reveals that he would always imitate everybody as early as when he was aged 4 or 5. Speaking to the Arizona Jewish Life, she said, ‘he mostly would imitate me –which was yelling ‘Go to Your room!’ or ‘You are in trouble!’
When aged 5, Asher asked his mom whether he would go to Los Angeles and her answer was that if he put in the work and did 30 local shows –she would take him. And that is exactly how it played out. Most of the times, Asher would join his mom to watch the local shows at the Desert Stages Theatre in Scottsdale. It was, therefore, not a surprise that he started with acting roles for the local shows of the same theatre.
Some of the shows Asher starred in this stage include ‘Little Mermaid,’ ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Seussical’ and ‘Into the Woods.’ Within a short period of time, Asher had perfected his skills and mastered a lot of confidence from those experiences.
On his first trip to Los Angeles, Asher was introduced to the Osbrink Talent Agency in North Hollywood. Afterward, his mom would always accompany him whenever he had an audition –and the rest, as they say, is history.
His debut role in the 2008 film, Jolene subsequently opened up his doors to more roles and fame. When aged 12, he made yet another debut appearance in the Disney Channel television series Andi Mack. This was after he auditioned and won the role of Jonah Beck.
His family being ever supportive moved with him to Utah where most of the filming would take place.
Asher has had more roles in other films including ‘Hate from distance’ and ‘How do you do that Vodoo?’ Among the TV shows he has starred in include ‘Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders’ and ‘Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.’
In the near future, he is set for the lead role as Billy Watson, alongside Zachary Levi in the film adaptation, DC Comics’ Shazam! The film which is an extension to the DC Extended Universe is set for release in April 2019.
