Early Life & Background
Jack Champion came into this world on November 16, 2004. He was born in the town of Blacksburg, Virginia, right here in the United States, and was raised by his mother who happens to be a microbiologist.
Jack credits his journey into acting to his mother as he said she was the one who motivated and supported him all through.
That much being said the teenage actor actually began his journey when he was 8 years old.
He started appearing on stage in school theater productions, and from there, he gradually dipped his toes into the world of short films.
Acting Career and Rise To Fame
Back in 2015, Jack made his debut on the small screen with a modest role in the documentary series, “American Genius.”
Fast forward to 2017, and here’s where things get exciting. Jack scored a screen test for none other than James Cameron’s groundbreaking sci-fi extravaganza, “Avatar: The Way of Water.”
But that’s not all, just before landing that epic role, he popped up in the superhero blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019. Talk about starting big!
In between these mega-projects, he took the lead in the spine-tingling horror flick, “The Night Sitter” in 2018. Not bad for a young talent, right?
At the ripe age of 12, after enduring four months of nerve-wracking auditions, Jack snagged the role of Spider, a human teenager living amongst the awe-inspiring Na’vis on Pandora. But here’s the kicker – he had to film every single scene twice! First, in performance on a soundstage, and then in live-action in the landscapes of New Zealand.
To look the part, Jack committed to a grueling fitness regime with a personal trainer and chowed down on a high-protein diet because, well, his character spends a lot of screen time shirtless.
But that’s not all; he even learned the fine arts of freediving and scuba diving for those breathtaking underwater scenes. Talk about dedication!
After an epic five-year production journey, “Avatar: The Way of Water” finally hit the screens in 2022, coinciding with Jack’s 18th birthday. And it rocked the world, raking in over $2 billion worldwide, placing it as the third highest-grossing film ever.
2023 and Future Projects
Fast forward to 2023, Jack joined the stellar ensemble cast in the heart-pounding slasher flick, “Scream VI,” playing the role of Ethan Landry.
On the 25th of this month (August), you’ll see him as Liam Neeson’s and Lilly Aspell’s brother son in the thriller “Retribution,” a remake of the 2015 Spanish hit. Plus, he’s set to shine in Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s “Freaky Tales” and Jon S. Baird’s touching family drama, “Everything’s Going to Be Great.”
But Jack is not resting yet as he is currently working on the sequel, “Avatar 3,” slated for a 2025 release, and even parts of “Avatar 4,” scheduled for 2029. All this is to ensure that he doesn’t outgrow his role.
