At only 12 years old, JACOB TREMBLAY (Max) has quickly
established himself as one of the industry's finest young actors.
Tremblay garnered international recognition for his breakout performance
opposite Brie Larson in the critically acclaimed,
Oscar-nominated film Room. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the film was adapted
from the international best-selling book by author Emma Donoghue. Tremblay
received the Breakthrough Performance Award from the National Board of Review, a
Critics' Choice Award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for Best Young
Actor and a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a
Supporting Role by the Screen Actors Guild, among other accolades, for his
performance in the film.
In November 2017, Tremblay starred in Stephen Chbosky's box-office hit
Wonder, based on The New York Times best-selling novel by R.J. Palacio. Tremblay
played Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with facial differences who begins
mainstream school for the first time. Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Mandy
Patinkin co-star in the film, which received critical acclaim around the world.
In September 2018, Tremblay starred in The Predator opposite Boyd Holbrook,
Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key and Sterling K. Brown. Shane Black directed the
20th Century Fox reboot of the sci-fi action franchise, which premiered at the
2018 Toronto International Film Festival, just prior to its wide release.
That same month, Tremblay starred in Xavier Dolan's The Death and Life of
John F. Donovan, which also premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film
Festival. The film co-stars Kit Harington, Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandon and
Kathy Bates, and follows an American movie star who finds his correspondence
with an 11-year-old exposed, prompting assumptions that begin to destroy his
life and career.
Tremblay began his career in 2010 when he was featured in several
commercials. At five years old, Tremblay quickly transitioned to the big screen
when he was cast in Raja Gosnell's The Smurfs 2. In the film, Tremblay plays the
young son of Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays.
