Spoilers ahead! After being instantly shocked about Andi Mack's real parents in the pilot episode of the Disney Channel series of the same name, we had a ton more questions. Okay, so Andi's sister Bex is actually her mom – but then, who is her dad? It's a question that Andi herself had to deal with for the first five episodes of the show, but eventually we were able to put a face to the title: his name is Bowie, and we have definitely seen the actor who plays him before!
What does Andi Mack's dad look like?
After much lead-up to the reveal of her father, we officially know that Andi's dad is Bowie, and thanks to Bex's secrecy, he had no idea that Andi was his daughter.
The character is played by actor Trent Garrett, who you may recognize from his other appearances on shows like New Girl and Baby Daddy.
How often is Andi Mack's dad going to be around?
Judging by Trent's IMDb page, his character is set to appear in at least five episodes of the series. After making his debut in "She Said, She Said," he is also going to be featured in the upcoming "Dad Influence," "Terms of Embarrassment," "Best Surprise Ever," and " Hey, Who Wants Pizza?" which will all be airing in 2017.
It looks like the father and daughter will definitely have a relationship – and actress Peyton Elizabeth Lee definitely loves acting with him.
How did we not know about Andi's dad sooner?
Trent didn't reveal that he was even a part of the show until his character made his debut on TV – which means we didn't meet him with the rest of the cast!
"I haven't been able to publicize this yet because the show wanted me to be a surprise but I can't begin to explain how much love I have for the entire cast and crew and am so privileged to have the opportunity to play such a pivotal role in such an amazingly funny and heartfelt show!!!! Tune in Friday's at 8:30pm EST on #disneychannel #andimack," Trent posted on Instagram when the news officially broke. "Thank you @peytonelizabethlee @yourfriendlilan @asherdovangel @joshuarush @sofia_wylie @terriminsky @marloubob @thewildersmith for creating a world that is SO much fun to live in! Last but not least thank you @anamelikedanicalifornia for giving me the opportunity to audition for this! Without you it never would have happened!!!!! 🙏😊."
Bonus fun fact: Trent is a real-life dad to his 1 1/2-year-old son, so clearly he's got experience!
