JJJ is getting to know Lyon Daniels!

The young actor stars as one of the kid superheroes in the new film We Can Be Heroes, now streaming on Netflix.

Lyon plays Noodles in the movie, which is actually his feature film debut! He’s previously had roles on Prime Video series Patriot and Fundamentally Cynical.

Here’s a synopsis: When alien invaders kidnap Earth’s superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno (YaYa Gosselin) will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno (Pedro Pascal).

Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada (Priyanka Chopra Jonas). If they’re going to save their parents, they’ll have to work together by using their individual powers — from elasticity to time control to predicting the future — and form an out-of-this-world team.

Robert [Rodriguez] has been the most amazing director to work with since he is always so nice and chill,” Lyon said of the movie’s director. “While he is directing us he sometimes busts out his guitar and plays little riffs. He also gives us drawing assignments to help keep our creativity flowing. We had a dinosaur illustration wall hanging up on set where we would hang up our best drawings.”

Check out 10 Fun Facts with Lyon Daniels below:

  • 1. I am really into drawing, and I like to illustrate dinosaurs the most. I am really into dinosaurs and can name many of them like the Dryptosaurus, Oxalaia, eoraptor, and more.
  • 2. I’m a big fan of Godzilla. I have watched most of the films. I love any form of kaiju or giant monster films, for that matter.
  • 3. My spirit animal is a panther. I think they are really cool and to be honest, they are my favorite animal.
  • 4. I film, edit, and produce my own movies. I usually make films about dinosaurs, or I make films with my brothers, usually thrillers.
  • 5. My zodiac sign is Gemini, so I’m a party animal.

JJJ got to know more about Nathan with 10 Fun Facts – and even a bonus fact!

“One thing I share with my mom is a love of vintage shopping. She knows ALL the best spots in LA and we have a blast doing that together. And of course, I’m always on the lookout for rad 80’s threads,” Nathan told us.

Check out his 10 Fun Facts below:

  • 1. Since my mom is French-Canadian, she wanted me to learn to speak French. So from pre-K through 5th grade, I attended a full-immersion French school in Los Angeles.
  • 2.I was already way into filmmaking by 6th grade, so for middle school, I attended a Film Academy. It was an amazing 3 years and I got to make my first 7 short films there. Btw, I’m proud to say, all seven made it into film festivals.
  • 3. My family and I LOVE animals, which is why we have so many pets. A Bearded Dragon (Harry), a Chameleon (LUCKY), a French Bulldog (COCO), two black cats (TOOTHLESS and the other one, we just got, so we haven’t decided on a name yet), a white and gray Cockatiel (HEDWIG) and a bunch of clownfish.
  • 4. I love trying to figure out how to play songs on the piano. Most of the time they are either Elton John or Queen songs. This Christmas, I also worked on learning the soundtrack to Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi Trio. I love those songs.
  • 5. Okay, so, I do have this weird thing where any dial (temperature, volume, etc.) needs to be on a 0 or a 5. Like, it can’t be 44, I would change it to 45. I know, it’s a little Sheldon Cooper, but…
