8. What kinds of professional acting have you done?
I do a lot of films. I just filmed a movie that was about a girl who was really sad, I gave her advice, and she listened to me and that helped her. I also do voiceovers a lot. Also with Garden Street I competed at Access Broadway last year, I won Young Mr. Access Broadway and Best Vocalist out of the entire competition. I'm going back this year and can't wait.
9. Are you in anything that Garden Street families would see right now?
Yeah, I am in House of Cards. I play the character of Charlie, he is the son of a governor and he has a little sister and he meets the president. I'm in a bunch of episodes and come in during the middle of the new season. I’m also going to be in Jacob and I which is a film. I'm up for a few films right now but can't say what they are yet.
10. What was your favorite thing about filming House of Cards?
My most favorite thing was getting to jump on the bed in the White House and say my lines. I get to jump on the bed and my tv dad (Joel Kinnaman) pretends to shave my hair but he doesn’t actually do it. We play on the bed with my tv mom and roll around and stuff. It's really silly.
11. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Maybe dancing and singing on big stages like Broadway. I also see myself on tv and in movies a lot.
I have been to Disneyworld. It was awesome because I got to go in a pool with a waterslide that had a clown mouth at the end. The first time I did it I didn’t want to do it, it was so scary. But the second time I went down it was so fun and I kept wanting to do it.
