Hey Norton, you started your acting career at a very young age, what inspired you to pursue acting?

I actually was scouted by Heidi Klum’s production team for Seriously Funny Kids, they held an open call at the primary school I attended at the time and I was fortunate enough to get a call back. Prior to that I had never thought about acting.

Do you have any rituals before filming a show?

I tend to become the character days prior to filming, it helps me bring the character to life.

Are there any acting projects in the works you can tell us about?

NC16, my character is the catalyst, its a web serious about High schools student trying to fit in. Water Dawg is a short I recently worked on, its a comedy horror which I really enjoyed working on.

What are your friends and parents thoughts on your career in acting?

My parents are very supported, the majority of my friends are actors as well, the ones that are not actors are also supportive.

What goals have you set out for yourself in your career?

That is a tough one, I really just take it from audition to audition.

Overall, how has this whole acting career experience been for you so far?

It has been a great experience, I have worked with some of the nicest actors.  I met two of my closest friends on sets.

What’s your favorite part about being an actor?

Making people laugh that is what it is all about for me.

Do you have any advice for anyone trying to make it as an actor?

It is a lot of work, keeping striving and giving up should not be an option. Make your dream a reality and most importantly have fun.

Do you have any other talents other than acting?

I can pilot a Cessna, play acoustic and bass guitar. Which I enjoy doing on spare time.

Do you have any last things you want to tell your fans?

Thank you for your support, it is appreciated. No matter what your dream is follow it.
