JJJ got to know the young actor with our exclusive 10 Fun Facts feature. Check ‘em out below:

  • 1. I read all kinds of books. I’ve read the entire “Harry Potter” series, the “Percy Jackson” series, the “Chronicles of Narnia” series and about 1/3 of the “Hardy Boys” book series. I reread my favorite books every day.
  • 2. I enjoy playing Nintendo Video games. My favorites are the The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros.
  • 3. I want to be a video game designer for Nintendo when I’m older. Currently, I’m playing the Game Builder Garage and really getting an idea of just how much goes into designing a game.
  • 4. I have fun building Lego sets. I have Star Wars, Harry Potter, Ninjago and Marvel sets. Sometimes I like to make my own creations with my Legos. I take apart the existing builds and use my imagination to create new ones.
  • 5. I love playing with my little sister Zoë. We play all the time and I’m very thankful that I have a little sister. Sometimes I play board games with my mom and dad.
  • 6. I have a lot of favorite foods. Pizza, edamame, chicken, lamb, mac & cheese, cherries and waffles just to name a few.
  • 7. I’ve been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I usually do a recital once a year.
  • 8. I’m an early morning person. I get up every day between 5:30am and 6:30am – no matter what time I fall asleep.
  • 9. I like swimming in the summer. I have flippers, a mask and snorkel. The flippers help me swim really fast.
  • 10. My favorite TV shows are mainly Ninjago and Wild Kratts. I sometimes watch the Magic School Bus with my sister. I think I’ve seen every episode of all 3 shows.
