"Rockers & Writers"

Portrayed By

Ross Lynch

Austin Monica Moon is the lead protagonist of the show. He is a singer and dancer who became an overnight internet sensation after he uploaded a video that his friend Dez Wade directed of him singing Double Take, a song that he unintentionally stole from Ally Dawson. His manager is Trish De la Rosa. Dez, Ally and Trish are Austin's best friends, and his parents are Mimi and Mike Moon, owners of Moon's Mattress Kingdom. Austin has always dreamed of being a famous singer and dancer since he was young. It has been his life long dream to perform at Times Square, on New Year's Eve, which his friends helped him accomplish. He is always there for his loved ones, and even though he can be a little naive, he is still a sweet and funny guy, who will always try his best to help his friends in every situation. He is the boyfriend of Ally Dawson.

Austin is portrayed by Ross Lynch.



Austin is shown to be outgoing, sweet natured and very friendly. He's also somewhat of a musical prodigy, seeing as he can play several instruments (including a trumpet through another trumpet), can dance amazingly well and can sing. Still, he has trouble isolating thoughts with his fast pace thinking and can find it difficult to write a decent song. He is shown to be childish and a bit of an airhead. He loves stuffed animals and pancakes. He's more of a fun and rebellious person, who doesn't care about rules (he colors outside of the lines in a coloring book) and sees life as a big party. Despite his kindness and loyalty, he has trouble expressing his emotions and can be very indecisive about things. Austin is very talented, he can dance, sing, act, play basketball and more. He also loves his best friends and he never does anything without them knowing.


Ally DawsonEdit

Best Friend/Girlfriend/In Love With
Ally is Austin's songwriter/partner. They both admire and support each other even though they're opposites. They have hugged a lot and seem to enjoy it. In Magazines & Made-Up Stuff, Austin tells Ally that she's more important to him than getting on a national magazine cover. Austin and Ally are constantly helping each other out such as when Austin sang The Butterfly Song for Ally in Bloggers & Butterflies.

In Season 2, it is noted that there are hints throughout the season showing Austin and Ally's possible feelings for each other as wanting to be more than friends. In Backups & Breakups, Ally mentioned that if her and Austin were dating, Dez and Trish would feel it might affect their partnership with Team Austin. Austin then began to stutter and said that it would be weird for them to date with a nervous sound and a small smile across his face. It is believed that Austin and Ally do have a small crush on each other. Ally
finally admitted to having a crush on him in Girlfriends & Girl Friends. In Campers & Complications, Austin admitted having a crush on Ally. Dez even goes as far as to say that Austin loves her. They kissed in Chapters & Choices and became a couple in Partners & Parachutes when Austin tries to prove to Ally that she's the one he loves. Austin officially asks Ally out in Couples & Careers. They took a break in their relationship in Couples & Careers because they were both afraid that saying something about their different songs will cause them to be farther apart. Austin writes Steal Your Heart for Ally in Tunes & Trials and performs it, telling everybody its about nobody, even though its about Ally.

In Real Life & Reel Life they had a really big fight after Austin reveals he met with another songwriter when Ally conquered her stage fright, because he thought her career was going to take off, and she didn't need him anymore. Then Ally reveals that she had doubts about their partnership because Austin was so different from Ally back in Season 1 and she thought he would become a One Hit Wonder. But at the end of the episode they make up after Dez and Trish make them remake a scene from Chapters & Choices and they kiss for the second time.

In Fresh Starts & Farewells, Ally admits she still has feelings for Austin, but having to stay in Miami for her record deal to start of her career. When she shows up to say goodbye, Austin almost admitted he loves Ally by almost saying "I love you", but couldn't get the words out, so gives her a card with the words 'Thinking Of You' on the front. Inside of the card was an all-round Airline ticket, so Ally can meet up with them on tour, and see one of Austin's concerts. They agreed to see other people in Princesses & Prizes. Austin realized he still liked her and wanted to get back together with her in Hunks & Homecoming. However, Ally started dating Gavin at the end of the episode, leaving Austin heartbroken.

In Proms & Promises, Piper becomes suspicious about their relationship when Austin is being sweet with Ally by saying she always looks good, and holds her hand, making Ally blush. Ally also wonders if she's with the right guy. Is it possible that Austin is her perfect guy? At prom, Austin kept mentioning Ally, making Piper even more suspicious. At the end of the episode, Ally walks into prom and catch's Austin's eye, and he then realises he's made a huge mistake - he's meant to be at prom with Ally instead of Piper! In the next episode, Last Dances & Last Chances, they admitted they still have feelings for each other and never stopped. Austin then asked Ally out and she said yes. They then shared their third kiss and finally got back together. In Relationships & Red Carpets, Austin had to choose between Ally and his career. In the end, he chose Ally saying she's the best thing that ever happened to him. They both finally admitted they love each other and shared their fourth kiss


Best Friend/Manager
Trish is Austin's manager and they haven't been seen hanging around each other much, though they sometimes interact with each other. Austin takes the blame of messing up Face Puncher's jacket so Trish doesn't get her face punched. Soups & Stars was the episode where they danced for Ms. Suzy's Soups. They like hanging out together everyday with their friends, especially when everyone is hanging out at the beach club.


Best Friend/Practically Brothers
Dez is Austin's best friend and director of his music videos. Like Ally and Trish, they have been best friends since childhood. Dez and Austin are really close friends and they hang out with each other a lot. Dez knows all of Austin's secrets, including his fear of umbrellas, the fact that he only wears boxers with trucks on them, and the fact that his middle name is Monica. Dez was even the one to get Austin to realize had a crush on Ally. Austin also turns to Dez for advice, like during the "Auslly Arc" when Austin needs to choose either Kira or Ally. They appear to have been friends the longest on the show. They're practically brothers. They once tried to write a song together as well but the song turned out to be a terrible one.

She is still creepily obsessed with Austin, even going so far as to kidnap him, so he is scared of her

Kira StarrEdit

Austin first meets Kira on set while filming his music video, No Ordinary Day. At first, he considered her to be flawless. That was until he smelled her breath and instantly disliked her. He even went to the extent of lying about having a drooling problem to get her to quit so he wouldn't have to be around her.

In Girlfriends & Girl Friends, Kira's bad breath is gone and Austin becomes completely love struck. He asks her to go on a date, and despite her reluctance, she agrees. Ally helps Austin set up their "perfect date", really being Austin and Ally 's Perfect Date, because the first date between Kira and Austin went horribly wrong. They then went on a second date and played video games in Dez's basement. They began to date in this episode. Ally also gets jealous when setting up their date, and confesses her likes for Austin.

They met in Fashion Shows & First Impressions. After Austin decided to accept Gavin and Ally being together, he then saw Piper and began to like her. She found out he originally didn't want to date him because of her looks in a Nerd Day picture, so she called off their date because she didn't want to go out with someone so shallow. To prove to her that he wasn't shallow, he did a bunch of things for her that she said she believed in, like giving up certain luxuries as hair products, clothes, etc. They went to prom together in Proms & Promises. They broke up in Last Dances & Last Chances, because Austin wanted to be with Ally. Piper took the break up well, and knew Austin wanted to be with Ally. It is assumed that they stayed good friends.
