A busy young local actor is up for a prestigious Hollywood award.
Seth Isaac Johnson, 12, is one of the nominees for the 34th annual Young Artists Awards, which will be held May 5 at Studio City.
Johnson is nominated for best performance in a supporting role in a TV series, recognizing his work as a regular in the award-winning, Vancouver-shot AMC crime drama, The Killing. He is competing for the award with Isaac Wright (Game of Thrones), Ian Patrick and Max Charles (The Neighbours), Justin MacDonald (Debra), Tyree Brown (Parenthood) and Maxim Knight (Falling Skies).
The Crescent Park Elementary student has won acclaim for emotional and dramatic performances on-screen, and is also a voice actor, with a lead in the upcoming PBS cartoon series, Jet Propulsion.
On the big screen, he will be seen this summer in the feature film, Red Machine, starring James Marsden and Billy Bob Thornton.
