Did You Know Joshua Bassett Was Almost On This TV Series?!

Did You Know Joshua Bassett Was Almost On This TV Series?!

Joshua Bassett is revealing he was super close to being a lead in a Netflix TV show!

In a recent video interview, the 20-year-old musician and actor shared that it was down to him and one other actor on this hit series.

While opening up about his first times with Buzzfeed, Joshua talked about the first role he auditioned for but didn’t get.

“I mean, I started coming out to LA when I was about 16,” he said. “There were, I mean, there were a handful of roles. I was really close to the role in Sabrina The Teenage Witch. It was down to me and Ross Lynch, and he got it. I’m super happy for him, but I was definitely really hoping for that one.”

“There’s a couple others, but that one, I guess, stands out to the one where I was, I got really close and I was really excited about it, and it just didn’t work out,” Joshua said. “But ultimately everything worked out.”

If Joshua had landed the CAOS role of Harvey, he very well may not be on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series!

Joshua Bassett just released his long awaited, self titled EP!

The 20-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star has been working on the EP for the last two years, and it’s finally here.

“My debut EP is a rollercoaster of stories and emotions,” Joshua said in a statement. “It was written over the span of two years, so every song represents a different chapter of my life recently. It’s all about the messiness of relationships, the back and forth of falling into and falling out of love, and how those stories somehow come together into a cohesive chaos.”

In addition to releasing his EP, Joshua also just premiered the music video for the song “Telling Myself,” which co-stars fellow Disney star, Zombies 2 actress Chandler Kinney!

Joshua Bassett Opens Up About Removing Sabrina Carpenter Duet From EP

Joshua Bassett is speaking out about no longer releasing his upcoming duet with Sabrina Carpenter on his debut EP.

The 20-year-old HSMTMTS star opened up about the decision in a new interview with Billboard.

Joshua told the site that both he and Sabrina were “super excited” about the song, but in the end, “it was a very much a mutual conversation about what is best right now for everybody and this whole situation.”

“I didn’t want my EP to be overshadowed by some other narrative that people were trying to make,” Joshua added. “I really want the focus to be on the art instead of some of the talk and the chatter. You shouldn’t live to please everybody, but at the same time, there are ways to be sensitive to situations where maybe [‘We Both Know’] has a better chance at a different time.”

Joshua and Sabrina‘s song “We Both Know” was originally supposed to be the 5th song on the EP, but has been replaced with the track “Telling Myself.” Sabrina even teased the duet earlier this month.

The self titled EP will be out on March 12th.

In case you missed it, see his video reaction to being mentioned on SNL last weekend!

“First, I was in disbelief — [I was] mostly proud of Olivia,” he told Billboard about the sketch. “The fact that they were using her song in a sketch, I was like, ‘This is great. This is incredible!’”

“I was like, ‘I think I’m honored?’” he added about when the mentioned him. “They poke fun at everyone and everything. That’s the point of the show. I thought it was hilarious.”
