Joshua Rush (born December 14, 2001) is an American teen actor best known for playing Cyrus on the Disney Channel series Andi Mack, Turner in the film Parental Guidance, Bunga on the Disney Junior series The Lion Guard, young versions of Gabriel Gray on Heroes, Chuck Bartowski on Chuck, and multiple animated films through the medium of ADR.
Rush was ten months old when he first appeared in a local television special, and then several ads and catalogs shortly thereafter. By age 2 1⁄2, he had the uncanny ability to identify cars by logo and body style, and was soon featured on the KHOU morning news in a segment on how to raise "smart kids."
Before working on Heroes, Rush appeared on Private Practice. His film credits include Blue Boy, The Journal, and Mindsight, and he played Carlos in the Baby Jamz: Daily Lessons and Jamz Sessions children's video with Solange Knowles. He has also acted in commercials for Space Center Houston and Safeco Insurance, and a video e-card for AmericanGreetings.com. In 2009, Rush appeared on The Jay Leno Show as the "Super Duper Nanny Son." The same year he also appeared on Medium as Tanner Campbel, the boy in the banana costume, and on Criminal Minds as Ronny Downey.
Rush's first major television role came in 2009 when he was cast on Heroes. He played Zachary Quinto's character Gabriel Gray at a young age. This recurring role was part of a major plot point in season three. After Heroes, Rush had minor roles on Parenthood, CSI: NY, and Special Agent Oso.
In 2010, Rush began portraying a young version of Zachary Levi’s character Chuck Bartowski on Chuck. In this role, he worked with such actors as Scott Bakula and Linda Hamilton. Following his work on Chuck, Rush did ADR work on the Hallmark Channel movie "November Christmas", and commercials for McDonald's and GameStop.
In 2012, Rush appeared as Turner Simmons in the feature film Parental Guidance, which earned him a Young Artist Award nomination as Best Supporting Young Actor Age Ten and Under in a Feature Film. He is also in the thriller film Emelie (2015).
Rush plays Cyrus, one of Andi's two best friends, on the Disney Channel series Andi Mack. The series premiered on Disney Channel on April 7, 2017 with the one hour premiere amassing over 14 million views.
Rush was born in Houston, Texas. His father is a marketing strategist and his mother is a corporate documentary producer. Rush is fluent in English and Spanish (having learned Spanish from his nanny and in bilingual immersion schools). Rush is Jewish, and currently lives in Carson, California.
