Not only has the young man, born Nils Allen Stewart, Jr., done work on that iconic film franchise, but he has a popular music group, along with his sisters Maegan and Fivel. The band is called TSC (The Stewart Clan).
He is also set for another big role in a 2012 film entitledWhite Frog. But not only that, he’s also a young martial arts master and was inducted into the Martial Arts Junior Hall of Fame at the age of 10.
He was nicknamed Boo Boo as a youngster due to the fact that he would often be seen sucking two fingers and his mother decided that he had a “booboo” face. Boo Boo also has quite a diverse ethnic mix.
The young American has told the press that he has Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Scottish and Blackfoot (Native American) ancestry. Here, DA MAN‘s team in the USA spent some time with the young man for some exclusive fashion photos and an interview.
DA MAN: Can you tell us about your favorite Twilight ‘on set’ moment with your co-stars?
Boo Boo Stewart: I guess I had a lot of fun joking around and just listening to Robert [Pattinson], he is really a funny guy.
DA MAN: What was your last day on set of Twilight like?
Boo Boo Stewart: It was exciting knowing that these films were going to be huge—and the possible opportunities because of them and sad, too—knowing we would never all be together again like this … it was over.
DA MAN: What three people would you invite to a dinner party?
Boo Boo Stewart: Jesus, Heath Ledger and Paul Newman.
DA MAN: What are you looking forward to achieving in your life?
Boo Boo Stewart: Being a successful actor, being happy, feeling like I accomplished everything I wanted to do.
DA MAN: What are you working on now?
Boo Boo Stewart: Right now I am between films, so I am really concentrating on our music. My sister Fivel and I should be releasing our album soon.
DA MAN: We hear you and your sister Fivel sing, can you tell us about that and what style your music is?
Boo Boo Stewart: Well, what some people don’t know is I started in music, I got my first record deal when I was 12—so music is something I am pretty passionate about. Our style is pop rock and family friendly. Fivel is the lead singer and plays piano, my older sister Maegan plays the bass and I sing and play guitar.
DA MAN: Tell us about the upcoming film White Frog?
Boo Boo Stewart: I play a teen with autism. The only person my character relates to is his older brother (Harry Shum, Jr.) and he dies—my ‘perfect’ family falls apart. In my own way I have to bring them back together; it’s a great story and I am really proud and excited about it.
DA MAN: What attracted you to such a script/project?
Boo Boo Stewart: The character I play is so different than anything I have ever done and the story was just really touching.
DA MAN: Who would you like to act alongside in the future?
Boo Boo Stewart: Jim Caviezel.
DA MAN: Is there anything you’d like to say to your fans in Asia?
Boo Boo Stewart: I would just like to say thanks for all the support and I would love to have the chance to visit one day.
