American actor Asher Dov Angel was born on September 6, 2002. He made his acting debut as a young toddler in the Jessica Chastain-starring 2008 movie Jolene.
He gained notoriety for playing Jonah Beck in the Disney Channel sitcom Andi Mack in 2017. In the Shazam! movie from the DC Extended Universe that came out in 2019, Angel played Billy Batson.
Angel grew up in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and was born there. He is the oldest of three children—a brother and a sister—and the son of Jody and Coco Angel. He is a Jew. He plays the guitar and sings.
The 2008 movie Jolene featured 5-year-old Angel. Angel began his career by taking the stage in several plays.
The musical Oliver! held auditions when Angel was 7 years old. With his parents’ approval, Angel attended the auditions and was given a part in the production.
He went on to act in numerous plays at the Desert Stages Theatre in Scottsdale, including The Little Mermaid, Seussical, Mary Poppins, and Into the Woods, after his mother promised to take him to Los Angeles if he “put in the work and [did] 30 [local] shows.”
Angel’s mother maintained her word, and he moved to Los Angeles, where, at the age of 12, he participated in an audition for the Disney Channel television series Andi Mack and was selected for the role of Jonah Beck. His entire family relocated to Utah to be close to the series’ filming location.
The Shazam! movie adaptation from DC Comics starred Zachary Levi as Billy Batson’s adult superhero alter ego, and Angel played the title role in April 2019.
The movie, which is another entry in the DC Extended Universe, was well received when it was released.
