Booboo Stewart biography
Date of Birth: January 21, 1994
Long before he was cast in The Twilight Saga movies, Booboo Stewart (born Nils Allen Stewart Jr.) was making movies as both an actor and a stunt performer.
Born in Beverly Hills, the son of stuntman/actor/producer Nils Allen Stewart and actress Renee Steward, Booboo started learning martial arts at a young age and was inducted into the Martial Arts Junior Hall of Fame at age 11. His first roles included playing a martial artist, a child warrior and a Power Ranger, but soon he began getting a wider range of roles.
In 2004, he was cast in a regular role in the drama/horror series Dante's Cove, which enjoyed two seasons. Roles in indie films followed, before he was cast as Seth, the youngest member of Jacob Black's tribe in The Twilight Saga Eclipse. He reprised his role in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 .
His role in Twilight brought him both fan and industry attention, and Booboo was soon making guest appearances on American series such as CSI: Miami, Disney Channel's Good Luck Charlie (for which he received a Young Artist Award nomination) and Hawaii Five-0.
Roles in movies such as X-Men: Days of Future Past also followed and in 2014, he was cast in a starring role in the Disney Channel TV movie Descendants, opposite Disney Channel stars such as Dove Cameron and Cameron Boyce.
In 2013 Booboo won a Best Actor award at the FilmOut film festival in San Diego for his starring role as a neglected teen with Asperger's syndrome in the indie film White Frog (2012).
