Jaden Smith and the rest of the stars of The Get Down take over the red carpet at the show’s premiere at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday night (August 11) in New York City.
The 19-year-old actor was accompanied at the premiere by his cast mates Justice Smith, Herizen F. Guardiola, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Brown Jr, Jimmy Smits, Giancarlo Esposito, Mamoudou Athie, Zabryna Guevara and Daveed Diggs as well as director Baz Luhrmann.
Jaden recently opened up about how he got into hip-hope, saying, “I liked hip-hop before I saw You Got Served, but You Got Served is what got me into the culture of the dancing and the B-Boy steez of everything,” he told BET.
Jaden added, “Kids nowadays, they need to know where all this got started. They need to know how this all came about.”
