New Kid on the Block: Jacob Kyle Young

Ask any major movie star how they began their journey in Hollywood and the first thing that they will tell you was that it wasn’t easy. Most careers end before they even begin. A few adages that make Hollywood are ‘You either make it or break it’, ‘It’s a dog-eat-dog industry, ‘Fame does not last long’ and so on. In spite of such claims, people with pure and raw talent converge in Los Angeles and give their best to become the best. Among the thousands of aspiring actors that go to Hollywood to become the next best thing, only a few make it to the top. One such name, who is very well on his way, is Jacob Kyle Young.

Born on September 28, 1993, Young was born and raised in the Texan city of Plano. The two driving forces for him since a very young age were movies and sports. Blessed to have parents who supported him with everything he wanted to pursue in life, Young found it easy excelling in both. His interest in sports lay mainly with football and soccer. Owing to this, Young naturally developed a sculpted body by training hard and eating right. He categorically condemns the use of steroids by saying, “it does more harm than good”. He started out as a fitness trainer in Austin, Texas where he was declared the number one fitness trainer in the United States of America. While in Austin he also enrolled in acting classes, and after successfully completing his stint there, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor.
