His new role in The Astronauts, the spaceship Odyssey II is set to launch to investigate a mysterious asteroid passing by Earth. Keith leads the ensemble cast who gather to watch the lift-off and sneak onto the empty ship with their parent's security clearance before the event, accidentally initiating the launch sequence. Blasting off into space with no proper training, a malfunctioning onboard AI system, and their parents watching from Earth; the kids embark on a journey of survival using only their smarts and friendship as tools.

I booked my first commercial when I was five years old. My older brother was acting and I wanted in on all the fun.

I love animals. I have a leopard gecko named Leo. Recently I picked up lawn boarding and enjoy gardening.

How do you select which role? What do you want your brand to be known for?

When I get an audition I always read the role description and age first. I want my brand to be known for diversity and equality.
