Have you always wanted to be an actor? What motivates you to continue following your dream?
I discovered that I enjoy acting when I worked on my first independent short film. I had just turned eight. I had never acted in front of a camera with a director and crew, but it was fun and I felt very comfortable. When I had finished filming, I knew that it was something I wanted to do again. I think I’m motivated by the excitement of getting the next role and getting back on set.

Are there specific roles or characters you enjoy playing more than others?
Every role is a learning experience for me. The role of “Adam Warren” has been the role that challenged me the most so far. It gave me the chance to develop the character. I’d like to try different types of roles in the future, especially a comedic role.

Is the character of Young Adam on “The Family” a tough role for you to play?
No, it wasn’t too tough. The role was serious at times, but it’s something I really enjoy doing. Plus, the actors that I got to work with are very nice and supportive.

What do you like doing on your free time?
When I’m not acting or in school, I hang out with my friends and play video games. Do you have any other special talents? I’m good at playing video games! I also enjoy running. I run on my school’s track and field team and like running in the 100 and 200 meter events.
