Astro Talks Red Band Society & Cystic Fibrosis: 'Dash Lives It Up'

Astro chills out at the bottom of some stairs in his new feature for the January 2015 issue of NKD mag.

The 18-year-old actor/rapper opened up to the glossy about music, acting and more. Check it:

On how he got attached to Red Band Society: “Some of the scripts [sent to me] are just great, to the point where it’s like, ‘I wanna be a part of it. I have to be a part of it.’ Red Band was one of those scripts. It was amazing, it was playful. It was selling the story of the teenager from the teenager’s perspective. It wasn’t, like, old man from the middle of nowhere trying to tell our story like a lot of TV shows do.”

On Dash and cystic fibrosis: “[Dash is] one of the wildest kids in the hospital, in the sense that he enjoys every moment of his life I’m very ambitious and I like to have fun all the time, but I think he [Dash] also tells the tale of a kid with cystic fibrosis. I met some kids with cystic fibrosis and … as much as they were going through, they weren’t sad at all. They were enjoying every moment of their lives, because they knew tomorrow wasn’t promised. I think he [Dash] lives it up for that reason because he knows he could die at any given moment.”

On his music plans: “We gotta grind to get to that point first. I’m not trying to put out an official album yet. This is more like a proper introduction to me. This is introducing the people, this is who ASTRO is.”
