There’s so much to love about Jonah Beck!

Following the series finale of “Andi Mack,” which aired on Disney Channel late last month (and which we’re still not over, by the way), Asher Angel is opening up about his heartthrob role.

In a recent interview, the 17-year-old “One Thought Away” singer got real about why portraying such a real and raw character was important to him, and explained that it wasn’t until Jonah transitioned from being a seemingly perfect person to revealing some of his internal helplessness that Asher truly felt connected to his on-camera counterpart. Ultimately, it’s that imperfectness that he says is his favorite part about Jonah. We couldn’t agree more!

“From anxiety attacks to financial issues at home, it is those moments that I felt allowed the audience to better connect to the character. Life is not perfect for anybody. It is the struggle that is important and how you respond to the struggle that defines the type of person you are.”

In case you missed it, the creator of “Andi Mack” recently teased a possible spinoff movie in the works!
