As Andi Mack comes to a close this week, we wanted to take a look back at how the actors got their roles on the show.
Throughout the week, JJJ will be sharing each of the core four’s casting stories, kicking off with Joshua Rush as Cyrus!
Joshua takes on the role of Cyrus Goodman, who is Disney’s first LGBTQ+ character. Cyrus first came out to Buffy in the season two premiere, revealing that he had a crush on Jonah Beck, at the same time as Andi Mack.
While Joshua was auditioning for the role, he was actually already booked as a lead in another Disney Channel pilot.
“He came in with a list of questions about my plans for Cyrus’ storyline, which I had to answer before he would even consider auditioning. I don’t know if he ever actually read the sides. He was already Cyrus. The other pilot was never made. (Belatedly, I’m feeling very guilty about that.),” creator Terri Minsky shared about his casting.
Be sure to stay tuned to JustJaredJr.com for the rest of the week to see how stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Sofia Wylie and Asher Angel all got their roles on Andi Mack!
The Andi Mack series finale will air on Friday (July 26) at 8pm on Disney Channel.
