Your Advantage & Awareness

Academy Newsletter Interview - February 2021

Young Artist Academy™ Award Winner Christopher Convery follows his passions from Broadway to Hollywood.  The 13-year old from Los Angeles talks about his favorite projects and what he loves about working in Entertainment.

Not only am I an actor, but I am also a professional singer and pianist and love to play and sing any chance I get.  I was on Broadway in New York as a principal for two years in Kinky Boots. I also love to game and I am pretty good at it. I love to sing and play piano, listen to music and it just inspires me with ideas and creativity.  One day I would like to direct my own movie! 
I have worked on many film and tv projects, and I just recently finished filming Brahms: The Boy 2 with Katie Holmes, Ralph Ineson, and Owain Yeoman.  It was great being able to play opposite of Katie Holmes and I learnt a lot as an actor!  I was lucky to have this film come out right before Covid so that I could see it in the theaters so I could see it on the big screen.  I also did The Girl In The Spider's Web with Clair Foy, Stranger Things as Young Billy, and penguins partner in crime for Gotham, etc.  I love being able to play any type of character, one day you can be a superhero or a normal kid.  You also get to make so many friends along the way that are like-minded.
