celebrity who’s already on the rise to stardom.
Jojo’s humble beginnings
and his fortunate future
Born in Silverdale,
Washington, the 19-year old actor kick started his career at a very young age.
After landing a few commercial gigs and starring in short films such as Street
Ships, Please Just Smile and The Deserted he finally made it, becoming Michael
Dishon in A&E Network’s documentary show Cold Case. Jojo shares his talents
alongside his younger brother Mikey Tua, who is also a singer and actor.
In 2017 he performed
at the Teen Choice Awards alongside Lil Yachty and Kyle. Jojo isn’t sitting
quietly, and as a talented singer as well, he released his first single “Sommer
Ray” in mid-June 2020 and has recently dropped his second single “Space Jams”.
What are some
of his major achievements?
Young Tua has built
his impressive resume, but he really
stands out in his television work which has allowed him to branch out into
different ventures. “I enjoy working in front of the camera, the people you
meet, and the places you get to visit are amazing. My latest single ‘Space
Jams’ has to be one of my biggest achievements, I worked hard on it, put in the
time and effort and I know that the people will enjoy it,” Jojo shares with us.
acting, singing, and dancing, what are some other things he cares about?
“There’s so much
happening in the world right now, and young people need to be pro-active in the
movement of change. Being part of the betterment of society and helping where
you can, can bring change to our society. Having to choose is difficult, but
helping mentor those who have experienced drug abuse and poverty are two main
causes I will always support, not just here at home, but around the world in
places where it’s needed most too.”
him to always do better or try harder?
Jojo has built an
admirable reputation for himself, working his way up in Los Angeles and
building a successful career from a young age. Being so young and ambitious may
have its perks, but there is always someone or something that will help inspire
you to be better and do more. When asked who inspires him most, his answer is
“If I have to say, my
family, without a doubt. They’re the people you go to for advice, and the first
people you share good and bad news with. They’re the people that push you to do
more, try harder, and inspire you to become the person you want to be.”
Is there any
particular person he’s enjoyed working with the most?
“I haven’t been
acting for that long, but over time I have met some extremely talented and
hard-working people. I acted alongside my brother, Mikey in ‘Try To Smile’ back
in 2018 and had the opportunity to also work with artists like Cameo Sherrell,
Erica Denise Curry, Chuanda Mason, Sébastien Charmant, and Morgan Parsons.”
something he lives by?
“I think if you
discovered what you love in life, whether it’s dancing, acting, singing,
helping other people, whatever it may be – if it gives you the ambition to do
more and better, then you know that you’re on the right track. I trust my
instinct every time I go for an audition, I do my best and keep my head high,
even if I got the part or not.”
