In Hollywood, success and stardom have nothing to do with age. Just check Nick Robinson’s career graph before you defer. The actor, who was born in 1995, has already earned an impressive profile as an actor. His journey began when his parents, who are based in Seattle, noticed that their elder son is quite good at acting. At the age of 11, Nick got into a theatrical adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel ‘A Christmas Carol.’ A family friend who was present among the audience was awestruck by the boy’s stage presence, and recommended the name, Matt Casella. The legendary Catella is the last word in Hollywood when it comes to spotting talent.
At the age of 11, Nick Robinson reached in the safe hands of Casella. In 2009, Nick managed to debut with ABC family sitcom, ‘Melissa & Joey’, after which the Disney original, ‘Frenemies’ followed. Nick landed in supporting roles in movies like ‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Everything, Everything,’ and ‘The 5th Wave. His first major studio film ‘Love, Simon‘ freed him from the slew of supporting roles. His character Simon Spier, a closeted gay high school student who falls for an anonymous classmate through exchanging emails, earned him critical acclaim.
