He is currently being portrayed by Will Kindrachuk.
Asher is first seen in the Student Council meeting as he tries to stay the meeting before going to the restroom, and he is later seen at the dance after School of Rock was chosen as the musical act over DJ Igneous (Brilliant Disguise). He is then seen buying a cupcake from Tomika in her campaign to save the koala bear, but is then interrupted by Summer and ignored by both girls (I Put a Spell on You). He is seen as the secretary for the school's student council and commonly has to use the boys' bathroom (something Summer later uses as a way to leave Freddy and Kale behind in Total Eclipse of the Heart). He seems to know about Zack's ways to make money as he tries one of Zack's spicy sandwiches and has to pay for milk and has worked for Zack a few times in Season 2. After the events of Total Eclipse of the Heart, he may have feelings for Summer and may be caught in a love triangle of him, Summer, and Freddy.
Asher's debut is in Do You Want to Know a Secret? as he talks to other students about School of Rock before he and Kale sing Future Starts Right Now together and discuss the band further, knowing a lot about them. He then talks with Tomika and she accidentally reveals she plays bass for the band. However, Lawrence knocks him out with a Jiu Jitsu technique so that when he woke up, he wouldn't remember what Tomika told him. He appears again in Heroes and Villians, enjoying the comic book that Tomika made and Freddy later edited to humiliate Tomika. Later on, Asher refused to name the owner of the comic book he had, thus letting Principal Mullins and Clark pressure him to reveal the owner and threaten him with mega detention for not complying. Tomika steps in and saves Asher from an unfair punishment by saying she owned the comic book when it was Freddy who owned it.
Although Asher hasn't been around for that long, that doesn't take away his importance. As secretary of the student council and a journalist with the school newspaper, he shows himself as intelligent, dutiful, and involved with the student body. Outside of his school roles, Asher displays charity with having a cupcake to support Tomika's bake sale to save the koala, helpfulness with Zack's business on Lawrence, chivalry with giving Summer, someone he may have romantic feelings for, his jacket when she was cold, and loyalty with not naming the comic book owner (Freddy) when the school banned them. With these assets, Asher has more than enough to prove himself as a good person and friend.
Possible Crush/Good Friend
Main Article: Summer and Asher
Before Total Eclipse of the Heart, Summer and Asher were friends and worked together on the William B. Travis Prep School Student Council (Summer being the president and Asher being the secretary). After the episode, there could be a chance that Summer and Asher have feelings for each other.
Zack enlists Asher any time he has a business set up, and it is seen clearly in Takin' Care of Business where Asher is a security guard under Zack's employment.
In Season 2, Asher and Tomika are first seen interacting in I Put a Spell on You, with Asher helping Tomika's bake sale by having a red velvet cupcake. In Season 3, Asher has interacted with Tomika the most. In Do You Want to Know a Secret?, Tomika accidentally reveals she plays bass guitar for School of Rock to Asher, but is saved when Lawrence knocks him out with a Jiu Jitsu move. In Heroes and Villians, Tomika takes the fall for the comic book being present after the ban was imposed. This gives her mega detention instead of Asher, who refused to name names as Principal Mullins and Clark pressured him to reveal the name of the comic book owner. This action allowed Tomika to be deemed a hero, saving Asher from an unfair punishment.
