We recently had the amazing opportunity of chatting with Joshua Rush from Disney Channel’s “Andi Mack.” Joshua opened up about his start in the entertainment industry, working on “Andi Mack”, filming, and more!
Check it out below!
1. How did you get your start in the entertainment industry?
I got my start in Houston, Texas! My mom is a video producer (of a different type) by trade, so she noticed I was a real ham from the start! She was the one that got me a coach and an agent in Houston, and then we tried it out in Los Angeles!
2. What was your first project?
My first project ever was a commercial in Spanish for SafeCo! I was really young back then, but I still have very fond memories of shooting that commercial!
3. Can you tell us about “Andi Mack”?
Andi Mack is a modern-day coming of age story about Andi, whose life gets turned upside down when her sister comes home and reveals a big family secret!
4. How would you describe your character?
Cyrus Goodman is one of Andi’s two best friends. He’s quirky, not athletic, and generally just a little awkward. He’s got a sense of humor that can make just about anyone laugh. Cyrus doesn’t fit in with anyone but Andi and Buffy… and he wouldn’t want to anyway.
5. How are you similar and different to your character?
I really felt a great connection to him that grew over the course of the season and through the course of the auditioning process! It’s been a joy to give him a voice. My first impression of him was “wow, this kid sounds a lot like me!”
6. What has been your favorite episode to film so far?
I loved shooting episode 4! It actually comes out this Friday (April 21st)! The dancing scenes were really fun to shoot!
7. What makes “Andi Mack” stand out from other shows?
I think Andi Mack is very real! It’s very special to have a show that touches on real family values and talks about things that could really be happening next door! I think it’s exciting and cool!
8. What can fans expect to see on upcoming episodes?
Fans can expect to see the best dance moves they’ve ever seen from me. Their eyes will be dazzled by all THREE of my dance moves!
9. Do you have any other upcoming projects?
I’m really focusing on Andi Mack for now! It’s been my focus and my prize for the last long while!
10. What are your social media accounts where your fans can follow you?
My social media is mainly under @JoshuaRush (Twitter, Instagram) and @TrueJoshuaRush (Snapchat and a few others). My Tumblr is persongoingfast.tumblr.com, and my Facebook is /JoshuaRushOfficial. I do a few live streams once in a while on my Instagram, so your best chance at getting a response from me is there!
