Kelvin Harrison Jr, Who Played Joseph Bologne in “Chevalier”
Kelvin Harrison Jr. (age: 28 years; born July 23, 1994) is a talented American actor who has worked on small and big screens. He first caught audiences’ attention with his small yet impactful roles in the critically acclaimed films “Ender’s Game” and “12 Years a Slave” in 2013. However, his breakthrough performance as Travis in the 2017 horror film “It Comes at Night” truly put him on the map.
Since then, Harrison Jr. has continued to impress audiences and critics with his impressive range and depth as an actor. In 2019, he received widespread recognition for his outstanding work in “Luce” and “Waves,” earning him nominations for prestigious awards such as the British Academy Film Award, Gotham Award, and Independent Spirit Award.
These days this brilliant artist is in the talks because he played the lead character Joseph Bologne, aka Chevalier de Saint-Georges, in the Stephen Williams-directed “Chevalier,” which landed in cinemas on April 21, 2023. It is a biographical drama based on the life of Joseph Bologne, who rose to heights in French society with his excellent skills as a musician.
How Old is Kelvin Harrison Jr?
Born on July 23, 1994, to accomplished musicians Shirlita and Kelvin Harrison, Kelvin Harrison Jr was raised in the Garden District before moving to The Westbank. From a young age, it was clear that Harrison possessed a natural gift for music, and he spent much of his childhood honing his skills on the piano, trumpet, and as a singer.
The legendary Ellis Marsalis trained Harrison’s father and grew up with Harry Connick Jr., giving him a rich musical heritage to draw from. Kelvin studied under Jason Marsalis, recorded with Delfeayo Marsalis, and even had the privilege of meeting Wynton Marsalis.
Despite his passion for music, Kelvin ultimately decided to pursue a career in acting. After graduating from a private high school where he struggled to fit in, he studied studio engineering and marketing. However, it wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles, California, to take acting classes that he discovered his true calling.
Kelvin Harrison Jr’s Acting Journey
Kelvin was 18 when he stepped into Hollywood with the highly-anticipated movie “Ender’s Game,” based on the famous 1985 novel. This movie allowed him to work alongside acclaimed actors such as Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, and Viola Davis.
After his first significant movie role, Harrison went on to appear in other notable films, such as the critically-acclaimed drama “12 Years a Slave,” as well as WGN America’s “Underground” and the 2016 remake of “Roots,” both of which were produced in his home state of Louisiana. Despite some initial hesitation to participate in “Roots,” Kelvin realized the importance of the project and the opportunity it provided to tell meaningful stories.
The New Orleans native continued to impress audiences with his performances, receiving critical acclaim for his role in Trey Edward Shults’ psychological horror film “It Comes at Night,” which premiered at the Overlook Film Festival in Oregon. His portrayal of Travis, a young man hiding from a deadly disease, earned him a nomination for Breakthrough Actor at the Gotham Awards and renewed his passion for acting.
In 2018, Kel made a splash at the Sundance Film Festival, starring in three films that premiered there: “Monsters and Men,” “Monster,” and “Assassination Nation.” He portrayed a gifted teenage baseball player in “Monsters and Men,” a friend of the female protagonists in “Assassination Nation,” and the lead character in “Monster,” a movie based on Walter Dean Myers’ novel.
In 2020, he expanded his CV by taking on more lighthearted and comedic roles, such as his supporting role in “The Photograph” and his male lead in “The High Note.” In 2021, Harrison was cast in Joe Wright’s “Cyrano.”
