Disney Channel's show Andi Mack premiered this spring and has had us both laughing and crying ever since. The TV series is already a mega hit, and it's recently been renewed for a second season. J-14 caught up with one of the stars of the show, Joshua Rush, who plays Andi's friend Cyrus Goodman. We asked him to share four things about himself that fans do not know. In the video below, Joshua shares four things that you may be surprised to learn about him, including his obsessions, his extracurriculars, and his pets. (His story about his bird Salsa literally made us LOL.) Watch the video to find out: "Who is Joshua Rush, really?
The show tells the story of 13-year-old Andi Mack, whose life is upended when her older sister Bex returns home. Throughout the show, she learns to cope with the news that Bex is actually her mother and that her mother Celia is actually her grandmother. Her BFFs Cyrus and Buffy are always there to support her, but still. That's quite a dramatic way to start your teenage years! The first season of Andi Mack was a roller coaster of emotion, and fans can expect an even more intriguing plot for the second season of the series.
It was recently announced that Joshua's character, Cyrus, will come out as gay on Andi Mack. In the upcoming season, his character will come to the realization that he has feelings for Jonah Beck, played by Asher Angel. While fans don't know when the pivotal episode will be happening, the storyline is groundbreaking. It will be the Disney Channel's first LGBTQ storyline ever. Cheers to that! Joshua had been teasing the "groundbreaking storyline" on Instagram, and we're excited to see it come to life.
