'Scariest 10-Year-Old' Jackson Robert Scott Is Now 12 and Busy with His Growing Acting Career
Child actor Jackson Robert Scott got his first big break playing Georgie Denbrough in It Chapter One in 2017. Scott, who was once deemed the 'scariest 10-year-old in America' for his role in the supernatural horror film, may look cute and innocent, but as an actor, he is very fierce, and there is no stopping him as he lands bigger, better roles by the day.
He Recently Turned 12
Scott's Instagram bio claims that his mother handles his social media account. Even then, the child actor makes sure to update the fans on whatever is happening in his life.
For instance, in October 2020, when he turned 12 years old, he shared a few highlights of his birthday on his Instagram handle. He seemed excited and happy celebrating his birthday with his Locke and Key family.
Moreover, the 12-year-old has multiple fan pages on social media, thanks to his amazing acting. Most of these fan pages also wished him on his birthday.
Scott's Latest Projects
While most actors wait for years to land a major role in their career, this young actor has already made his mark at the age of 12.
Scott has played a prominent role as Bode in the supernatural drama series Locke and Key. When the series was picked up for season 3 back in December 2020, he took to Instagram to share his excitement.
More recently, the It actor also starred in WandaVision, Rising, and Gossamer Folds.
With the success of his acting career, Scott is broadening his horizon. He recently launched his own merchandise, as he proudly announced on Instagram. The limited-edition merch included t-shirts, hoodies, and masks.
He Started His Career At The Age Of 7
Scott started auditioning for acting gigs when he was only seven years old. He landed a major role in his first project itself in the TV series Criminal Minds in 2015.
In 2017, he appeared in season 3 of the fan-favorite TV series Fear the Walking Dead as the younger version of Troy Otto's character.
However, when he landed his role in It, it changed the game for him. Within a short span of time, he managed to land more extensive projects. Some of which include The Prodigy, It Chapter Two, and Skin.
In fact, his short film Skin went on to win an oscar for its compelling storyline in 2018.
The Scott Family
The Pheonix, Arizona native was born to parents Dan and Robin Scott. There isn't much information about them as they like to keep their lives away from the limelight.
We do, however, know that he has a sister, Addison. There seem to be just as many pictures of her on the 12-year-old's social media as his own.
For instance, being a proud brother, he cheered her on when she was about to perform her first-ever vocal showcase. But that was just one of the many things that make him a good brother.
