Astro Teases Love for Dash on 'Red Band Society' & Dishes on His Upcoming Album (JJJ Interview)

Astro gives JJJ the goods in this brand new interview!

The 18-year-old actor/rapper stars as Dash on one of our favorite new shows – Red Band Society!

And not only is he a talented actor, but Astro is set to drop his album Computer Era on his website and iTunes on December 2, so pre-order it now!

He describes it as “a little old school flavor with a new school feel.” We can’t wait to hear it!

Meanwhile, Red Band Society airs Wednesdays @ 9/8c on Fox!

JustJaredJr: Tell us about the moment you found out you got the role. What was that like?

Astro: I read for a few different roles in Red Band Society, so when I heard I got the part, I said; “Which one?”

JJJ: Dash and Leo are obviously best friends. Did you get to hang out with Charlie [Rowe] and bond at all before filming?

Astro: Not for the pilot. We actually met the day before filming for the pilot started. We had a chance to really hang out before we started filming for the series episodes.

JJJ: Dash was the one to catch on to Charlie’s jealousy concerning Jordi (Nolan Sotillo) and Emma (Ciara Bravo). Will he continue to fight in Charlie’s corner?

Astro: Dash is a friend-to-the-end type of guy, so he’ll always fight for his friends.

JJJ: Any chance we’ll see Dash have some luck in the love department soon?

Astro: YUP.

JJJ: Mysterious! So far, we’ve seen mostly the very happy side of Dash. Will we get to see the darker side of his disorder this season?

Astro: Yes. Dash will have a lot of serious issues with his sickness. Some very close calls.

JJJ: We know that you’re also a rapper. Do you ever break into song on set? What’s your go-to song?

Astro: Not really, I keep my alter ego undercover on set.

JJJ: Favorite memory from filming the show so far?

Astro: Griffin Gluck falling asleep while filming and then waking up in the middle of the scene when his character is suppose to be in a coma. Hilarious!

JJJ: In terms of your album, what can fans expect lyrics-wise? Are they driven by real-life experience?

Astro: Yes. Most of my music comes from realness. Life experiences or things I observe in life.

JJJ: Who are some of the music idols who helped inspire you to do the album?

Astro: The greats. Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac & Naz.
