How did you get into acting?
Trevor: It started from dancing, then one thing led to another when I was 7 yrs old and we went on a dance trip in NYC. They told my Mom to put me in anything but dance when we got back home since they already knew I could do that. I auditioned for the local Beef & Boards Christmas show and got the lead. After that, I was blessed to be Young Simba in Broadway Show of The Lion King for three years and I have been acting ever since.
