Andi Mack's Joshua Rush & Peyton Elizabeth Lee Talk About Acceptance Theme in Season 2

Andi Mack's Joshua Rush & Peyton Elizabeth Lee Talk About Acceptance Theme in Season 2

Andi Mack came out strong with their second season premiere last week with a powerful storyline where Cyrus realizes his feelings for Jonah on the Disney Channel program.

It’s a storyline that creator Terri Minsky worked on with child development experts and screened for organizations such as GLAAD and PFLAG.

“I know there are a lot of kids out there who think that they’re weird and different,” she shared in a new featurette. “I guess I kind of wanted Buffy to say it to all of them, and I wanted it to feel like acceptance.”

Joshua Rush adds that he “hopes people, out of Cyrus’s storyline, get this feeling like you can be who are, and if there’s something you’re thinking about, you should talk about it.”

Peyton Elizabeth Lee is more than proud about storyline, saying that she loves that the show can create conversation between families.

“I hope it gives kids the confidence to be proud of who they are and just be happy with themselves,” she shared. “All of the stories in Andi Mack, particularly Cyrus’ story, give this amazing opportunity to open conversation between parents and kids, or between friends.”

Peyon Elizabeth Lee and the rest of the cast all took the chance to thank viewers for their positive reactions and praise for the episode.

“An enormous thank you to everyone who watched our premiere last night. I couldn’t be more proud of Andi Mack. It supports and celebrates everything I believe in so strongly. My heart leaps from my chest every time I see that incredibly portrayed scene between Josh and Sofia, and frankly any time I see any cuts of the episodes,” Peyton wrote.

She added, “I believe in the world we live in. I believe that we can all stand together. Hand in hand. I believe that the love in the world can beat the hate. And that the beautiful melody of kindness and support can drown out the unwelcome detestation. The fact that our show could add, in any way, to that energy. That invincible force pulling us all together. I could not ask for anything more. #yourenodifferent”

Joshua Rush said that he was “overwhelmed by all the support” while Sofia Wylie added that she “can’t thank you all enough for the love!”

Cyrus Confesses His Feelings For Jonah on 'Andi Mack' Season Two Premiere (Video)

Andi Mack had a major TV moment on tonight’s season two premiere episode.

During the premiere, Cyrus (Joshua Rush) realized his feelings for Jonah (Asher Angel), and confided in best friend Buffy (Sofia Wylie) about them.

“I feel weird,” he confesses to her. “Different.”

Buffy tells him, without missing a beat: “You’ve always been weird, but you’re no different.”

Cyrus is the first main character on a Disney Channel series to come out as gay. Disney announced the storyline earlier this week.

Joshua Rush's Typical Day on the 'Andi Mack' Set is Seriously Busy

Joshua Rush's Typical Day on the 'Andi Mack' Set is Seriously Busy

Like most young actors, Joshua Rush has crazy busy days on the Andi Mack set — however, we didn’t realize just how crazy is was.

Speaking with Huffington Post, the young actor, who plays Cyrus on the show, laid out his typical plans on set.

“I’ll wake up about an hour and a half before my call time, get ready and dressed and drive to wherever the set is that day,” he explains. “Sometimes I’ll rendezvous with Sofia [Wylie] and carpool with her because we live in the same apartment building.”

“I’ll arrive on set, where I order the same breakfast as every other day — a breakfast burrito with egg, potato, bacon and spinach — and head to my trailer to get dressed and then go to hair and makeup,” Josh continues. “After 45 minutes or so in prep (which includes getting breakfast), I’m ready to go!”

However, from there — that’s where it gets hectic because Andi Mack isn’t just based on a studio lot — it’s a bunch of different places all around the Salt Lake City area.

“I can be on set for 9 1/2 hours, of which three have to be in school, and 30 minutes has to be lunch,” Josh says. “While we’re on set, we go to a variety of locations. We go to Magna, UT, which is where the Spoon (the hangout diner for the Good Hair Crew) is, or to a real middle school in the foothills of the Wasatch mountains to film any scenes at the school.”

He adds, “Our studio (where the house is and a few other assorted sets) is in Salt Lake, and that’s where we spend most of our time. After I leave set, I’ll meet up with Sofia in our apartment clubhouse to play pool and prep our lines for tomorrow. I’ll head home and eat dinner, maybe watch ESPN, and then go to sleep!”

So, anyone else tired just by reading this? Us, too.

Andi Mack premieres TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
