Aster is basically everyone's dream girl. She is currently dating the most popular guy in school and everyone thinks she's perfect since her dad is the deacon at the local church. Despite all of this, she hopes to find someone who sees her for who she really is and not what they believe her to be.
This is Alexxis' first breakout role. She previously appeared in the TV movies Truth or Dare and The Art of Murder.
Wolfgang Novogratz as Trig Carson
Trig is the typical popular kid in school. While he is the star of the high school football team, he is not very bright and believes that everyone is in love with him. He is easily able to get away with things and he is currently in a relationship with Aster.
The Half of It isn't Wolfgang's first Netflix role. He previously appeared as Drew in Sierra Burgess is a Loser.
