JJJ spoke to Taj ahead of the premiere of his new show and learned 10 Fun Facts about him. Check ‘em out below!

  • 1. One of my biggest hobbies is skateboarding. I love and have so much fun skating and usually skate every day. Whether I’m skating with my friends or by myself, I end up making memories that somehow stick with me and never fade. I find skating for me, makes me feel free, and releases any bad energy that I might have.
  • 2. If I could have any superpower it would be to have the powers of Spider-Man. Like many other young lads, Spider-Man has always been my favorite superhero and I’ve always dreamed of swinging across skyscrapers and dramatically running into an alley to put the suit on.
  • 3. I listen to music everyday all day. I love finding new music or artists and then diving into every song they have out. I listen to my music on Spotify and have 16 playlists, and one of them is where I put all my favorite songs on and listen to the most. That Spotify playlist is over 10 hours long and still growing.
  • 4. Right next to Spider-Man, Batman was another one of my favorite superheroes. So I would watch every Batman movie that came out, including Christian Bale‘s trilogy. When I watched The Dark Night, I was speechless. Heath Ledger’s performance as Joker in The Dark Night was one of the main things that inspired me to act in film. His incredible work in that role is still my favorite performance of all time.
  • 5. When I was six years old, I got a Harry Potter wand, and I was convinced my magical powers were going to reveal. Me and my friend tried all day with the fiercest amount of conviction to get our wizard powers to work. They never showed… yet.
