Every year in the movie and TV industry, there is a newcomer who just steals the heart of everyone watching. Whether it is Dafne Keen in 'Logan' or Jacob Tremblay in 'Room,' little people make people go aww and then fall in love with them. This year was no exception both because another actor is making some moves in the show business and people love it.
Ja’Siah Young is the talented young performer who is making a case for himself as the next up and coming talent in Hollywood. With only three released credits to his name, the actor is slowly making his mark in the show business. The reason Ja’Siah shot into the limelight was because of his star-making performance in the Netflix sci-fi show 'Raising Dion.'
The eight-year-old actor was born on 9 August 2011 in Easton, Pennsylvania, and from a young age, there were signs of stardom in the little Ja’Siah. He's listed with Look Models Actors Agency through which the little actor appeared in advertisements and magazine pages, and it was all made possible by a massive support system behind the actor.
Ja’siah Young’s Parents and Early Life
We all get to see the magic of Ja’Siah on screen because his mother allows him to audition and appear in commercials and movies. He is among us entertaining the masses because his mother and family are a massive support system, who make sure the actor is comfortable in what he is doing.
Ja’Siah’s mother is Lawaine Young, who drives the young actor to auditions and shooting while also taking care of a little daughter. Ja’Siah is not the only child of her mother; he’s got a two-year-old sister. He is also looked after by his grandmother, who lives with the family.
There no mention of the father; however, it seems he is out of the family picture, and the two ladies are raising the kids. There is no mention of his father in the resume or the Instagram account, which is monitored by his mother.
The actor also seems to be extremely close to his sister, which is nice to see and adorable when their mother posts on his Instagram page. The whole family lives in Pennsylvania, and he is most probably going to school there as well.
