AC­TOR-AC­TIVIST

Nick­elodeon’s “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn” star looks to break out in the up­com­ing Net­flix show “The Um­brella Academy,” based on the pop­u­lar comic book. “I play a 58-yearold time-trav­el­ing as­sas­sin who’s stuck in a 13-year-old body,” he says. “It’s such an honor to bring this char­ac­ter to life from the graphic novel. It’s dra­matic, comedic and ac­tion­packed.” A fer­vent en­vi­ron­men­tal ac­tivist, he is a youth ad­vo­cate for Water­keeper Al­liance, Physi­cian’s Com­mit­tee, Oceanic Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety and Vul­can Prods., and was also re­cently des­ig­nated as a North Amer­i­can Good­will Am­bas­sador for UN En­vi­ron­ment, the youngest am­bas­sador in the UN sys­tem. “I be­lieve that if to­day’s youth work to­gether rais­ing our col­lec­tive voice, we can ef­fect positive en­vi­ron­men­tal change.”
