Last year, Aiden acted in a film titled “Kings” which was released in movie theaters in April 2018 and then later released on Netflix in September 2018.

This was his second acting job that was booked by his agent. His first acting job was Jimmy Kimmel’s Baby Bachelor In Paradise which he had such a fun time shooting for.

There are so many models agency for kids, so if you’ve ever considered submitting your children

Aiden auditioned for the role of “Jordan” in the film Kings sometime in October 2017. After his audition, we thought nothing of it, so we planned a trip to spend Thanksgiving 2017 in Bangkok and Phuket, Thailand.

As soon as we landed in Beijing where we had a long layover, Aiden’s agent at Zuri Model & Talent called us and informed us that the casting director loved meeting Aiden and wanted him to return for a call back.

PS: Aiden is signed with Zuri Model And Talent, which is one of the best child modeling agencies in the Los Angeles area.

A call back is basically when a casting director is interested in you and invites you to return for a second audition. We were excited about it, but then realized that we may not make it back in time due to being so far away.

Aiden’s agent was not happy when she realized that we were out of the country and we hadn’t booked him out. If you plan to travel with your child or are not available for whatever reason, it is required that you book your child out.

Booking out your child will help avoid the trouble of your child’s agent submitting your child for jobs that they won’t be available for. Many models agency for kids require you to do this.

Pro Tip: As a child actor, you have to be ready to audition for roles and be available for call backs. Sometimes Aiden gets audition notices a few hours before the audition, hence why living close by is very important.

Most of his auditions are in the Hollywood/Los Angeles area which is a forty-five minutes to an hour and half drive depending on traffic. Many models agency for kids in the Los Angeles area located around there.

After talking to Aiden’s agent, we figured he had lost the role but we weren’t bothered by it. We figured it wasn’t meant to be, and continued on with our vacation.

A few days after we returned from our Thanksgiving vacation in Thailand, I got a call from Aiden’s agent saying that the casting director was still interested in meeting Aiden again, and so we took him in for his call-back.

A few days after Aiden’s call-back, we got the exciting news that he had booked the role and will be playing the role of “Jordan,” one of Halle Berry’s foster kids. My husband and I, were so excited for him.

Not only was he playing a role in a film, but he was also playing alongside a well-known and famous actress. For us this was just a good reminder that “What is yours, will be yours.”

Pro Tip: Models agency for kids don’t make any money unless they book your kids paying jobs. That is how they get paid, so they expect you as a parent to make sure your child is available for auditions, call backs as well as available to work.

We’ve missed plenty of auditions and roles because of how often we travel. His agent is amazing and hasn’t made much fuss about us traveling especially because we travel a monthly basis.

We are so thankful and honored that our son was able to play in this film with such an amazing cast. Even though a small role, we hope that more doors will be opened for him and that this is just the beginning. Especially as he is signed with one of the best child modeling agencies.

Also, a big thank you to his agent at Zuri Model & Talent for landing him this role.

Here a few behind the scene photos, so that you can get a glimpse of what it is like to be on set. Aiden enjoyed every minute of being on set and acting in this film. He tells everyone he works in Hollywood, he’s such a star and loves the attention.
