Josh Edward Willcox is Liv's co-star in Voltage, as Garrison, Tess' love interest and a recurring character in Liv and Maddie, as well as being Maddie's love interest for seasons 3 and 4. He is married to Maddie Rooney.

Josh is portrayed by Lucas Adams.

PersonalityEdit

Josh was born in Hollywood, California. He likes boxlotti (a combo of boxing and Pilates), something he did with his friends in LA. Josh has played baseball since he was 2, with his position being a shortstop. He is very naïve at times, because he is unfamiliar with the Hollywood scene (despite living in Hollywood). He is a hardworker and believes that something worth doing is worth doing right. It is shown in episodes like Home Run-A-Rooney and Scoop-A-Rooney, that Josh is a romantic guy as she has shown this side of himself towards Maddie and how much he really cares for her. Also with the fact Josh has told Maddie he loves her many times. Josh is very caring towards Maddie, because he is willing to give up the most important thing for her - his love for her - but Maddie tells Josh she wants to be with him and not Diggie, therefore they stay together and he shows a much deeper thoughtful side to himself towards her. Josh is very laid back and a fun loving kind of guy as seen in Home Run-A-Rooney, when he goes along with Liv teasing him.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Josh is shown to be very handsome, tall and muscular due to doing physical activities like baseball and boxlotties. He has dirty blonde hair, green eyes, and tan skin. According to Maddie, Josh looks like a jock and she thinks he is very handsome. Josh is shown to wear very casual, but cool kind of clothes and then when he acts as Garrison, his clothing style is different, and is usually seen wearing Garrison's trademark flat cap.

RelationshipsEdit

FamilyEdit

Sarah WillcoxEdit

Mother

Josh has mentioned his mother times before, but not by name. Sarah introduces herself and is first seen in Time-A-Rooney, when Josh takes Maddie to meet his family for the first time. Like Mike and Amy, Sarah is very fond of Maddie and already sees her as family even before she becomes part of the family.

Mike WillcoxEdit

Father

Mike is mentioned once, but not by name by Josh. Mike introduces himself and is first seen in Time-A-Rooney, when Josh takes Maddie to meet his family for the first time. Mike likes Maddie very much, along with her other siblings, but especially Maddie and knows that she is perfect for Josh. Mike even gets along very well with Pete and they have a lot in common, after meeting each other for the first time in Wedding-A-Rooney.

Amy WillcoxEdit

Younger Sister

Josh mentioned Amy to Maddie before and by name, before he even mentioned his parents. Josh likes to tease Amy since she's his little sister, but they get along well, although she has admitted to being jealous of him at times since she wants to be an actress and that he got into the business, whilst she hasn't.

Mosh!! 💜

Maddie is Josh's wife. The two first met in Cowbell-A-Rooney and Josh was revealed to have feelings for Maddie, after instantly falling in love with her, which he revealed to Liv. In Secret-Admirer-A-Rooney, Josh wanted to ask Maddie out and she was revealed to like him back. Josh also hinted he loved Maddie. The two had a romantic, somewhat intense moment, where they locked eyes and almost kissed. Then in Vive-La-Rooney, the two start to hang out more, and Josh finally admits his feelings for Maddie, which she also tells him. Maddie decides she is ready to start dating again, and asks Josh out, which he gets excited about and says yes. The two become an official couple. They go on their first date in Homerun-A-Rooney and are still happily dating in Scoop-A-Rooney. Maddie chooses Josh when she realises he is the one she truly loves, and they stay together until the end of the show. Josh also hinted to proposing to Maddie in Time-A-Rooney and he took her to meet his family for the first time. They share their very first kiss in Dance-A-Rooney. In Valentines Day-A-Rooney, Josh proposes to Maddie and she says yes, after being together for a year and they admit they love each other and they go on vacation together for the first time in Vacation-A-Rooney to Barbados.

They get married in Wedding-A-Rooney and go on their honeymoon in Honeymoon-A-Rooney to Venice Italy. Josh reveals to Maddie in Opportunity-A-Rooney, that he has been offered another acting job in LA, but isn't sure whether or not to take it because he knows how much Stevens Point means to Maddie, saying he'd rather keep Maddie happy than have a career, but Maddie tells Josh he can't pass it up, leaving the two confused on whether or not they should move to LA; and find out they film is a spy movie in Spy-A-Rooney. They have their first child, Daniel, at the age of 24, in Reveal-A-Rooney. Maddie and Josh start searching for new houses in House-A-Rooney, after starting a family. When Josh finds out that the movie is wanting to be filmed in LA, in Back-A-Rooney, he isn't sure at first because it means he and Maddie would have to move to LA temporarily for 6 months. Maddie tells Josh she finds it sweet he is willing to give the movie up for her, but he shouldn't and they decide to move to LA.

Josh helps Maddie when she gets a migraine in Help-A-Rooney and even offers to not work on Voltage for a couple of days, because he would rather help Maddie get better, especially because of Danny and Josh thinks Maddie isn't well enough to look after their son, whilst she is sick, so Josh looks after both Maddie and Danny, whilst she gets better, which she really appreciates, but doesn't expect it. In Try-A-Rooney, Josh comments that he feels lucky to be alive when he's with Maddie and that she's his whole life. Maddie tells Josh he is the love of her life in Memory-A-Rooney and that they again say they love each other.
