Colin O’Brien’s Age, Birthday & Parents

On July 7, 2008, Colin O’Brien (age 14) took birth in Houston, Texas. His father and mother are camera shy and stay away from the limelight, which is why we do not know much about them, although we have found a photo where the young actor can be seen with his dad. “Wonka” actor is not the only child at home as he has an elder brother also.

Sources revealed that Col is a born actor; at 4, he made everyone at his preschool believe that he had a baby sister with his excellent acting skills. His parents quickly realized that their son could become an actor, and they started sending him to a local theatre, where he found an excellent acting coach that helped him polish his skills. Records revealed that the little guy worked on a total of 17 theatrical productions.

Colin O’Brien’s Acting Journey

After spending some time in the theatre, Col decided to go the extra mile to improve his acting skills; he learned about Boca Raton, Florida-based Green Room Acting Studio, and bought virtual lessons. Soon after completing G.R.A.S. classes, he received 19 audition calls. Due to cutthroat competition, he could not crack all of them but landed the part of Young Craig in “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone.”

It was Jason Blum’s production, the story of which revolves around a young man Craig (played by Jaeden Martell), who sends his dead friend Mr. Harrigan (portrayed by Donald Sutherland), a message and receives a reply in return making things bizarre and scary.
