AGE: 22

HOMETOWN: Santa Monica

PRIOR WORK EXPERIENCE:  I was a junior lifeguard and gave kids private swimming lessons. I’m also a certified personal trainer and teach self-defense.

FIRST PROFESSIONAL GIG IN FRONT OF A CAMERA: I did a print modeling job for a thermometer company when I was 15 days old.

BIGGEST ROLE TO DATE: I just did a Nationwide commercial.

FAVORITE MOVIE: Goodfellas [1990].

ROLE MODELS: I love Robert De Niro and Johnny Depp. I love the Method-acting style, how you become your role.

MOST MEMORABLE AUDITION: I had to pretend to rob a bank, so they had me holding a gun and sticking them up. To escape, they made me bust through this door and climb out of a window.

BEST THING ABOUT THE MOVIE BUSINESS: I like to entertain people. It gives them a chance to escape reality.

MOST HOLLYWOOD EXPERIENCE: I was an extra in a Pepsi commercial with David Beckham and Sofia Vergara. The paparazzi were just insane.
