5 Reasons Why Julian Dennison Should Be Your New Favourite Person
Julian Dennison, the Kiwi sensation, has now hit the big time in Hollywood and we are absolutely all about it.
The 15-year-old started out in the movie Shopping when he was 10-years-old and then progressed to starring in Paper Planes and Hunt for the Wilderpeople where he gained recognition for how funny and charming he was. But his biggest accomplishment to date is being cast in the new Deadpool 2 film starring alongside Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin and Morena Baccarin. Just a whole lot of yum if you ask us.
So with his star on the rise here are some of the reasons why Julian Dennison should be your new favourite person....
1. That Adorable Kiwi accent
Although his accent has gotten him into a few awkward situations, like when he told Jimmy Kimmel he usually does math on weekends which was heard in his accent as 'Meth.' LOL. The 15-year-old handled the situation very well by laughing it off along with the audience. Kiwi's really do have a great sense of humour.
2. He has starred in one of the biggest movies of 2018 and he's not even allowed to see it
He told Jimmy Kimmel that the movie is rated R16+ in New Zealand and that his mum wasn't going to allow him to watch the movie. Although he did say that New Zealand does have some different rules to America like the drinking age. He joked with Jimmy as he said "I know what I'll be doing when I'm 18" and then quickly apologised to his mum watching. Aw don't you love a mummas boy.
3. He is a proud Maori
When we sat down with the New Zealand native, he told us about how proud he was to be Maori. He also went on to say how special it is that a lot of young Maori kids will now be looking up to him. What a legend. Watch below....
4. He has a very mature outlook on life
Considering he's a teenager he seems to be a lot more mature than a lot of adults. He speaks about how the industry is very discriminatory against plus size superheros and how that needs to change. He has also spoken about always supporting his family and how he would love to start directing or producing one day. Don't you just love him
5. He's a little charmer
If you've seen Hunt for the Wilderpeople or the Lynx Australia ad you know how charming this fella is. He spoke to the director of Hunt for the Wilder People Taika Waititi and said "it takes about 40 minutes to choose an outfit because you'd want to impress the girls and want to look good."
It's safe to say Julian Dennison is an absolute sensation and destined to do huge things. We can't wait to watch this one play out.
