Marcanthonee Reis had a goal. As a five-year-old, Marcanthonee knew he wanted to take on Hollywood à la his favorite actors from the Nickelodeon shows he loved to watch. His parents helped him make his dream a reality, and three years later, Marcanthonee not only has some impressive guest spots under his belt, he is now making his big-screen debut in Joon-ho Bong’s award-winning film, “Snowpiercer.” The film had its US premier on June 11 in Los Angeles after first premiering in South Korea a little under one year ago, and hits theatres on June 27.
The sci-fi flick, based on a French novel, transports audiences to life on Earth after a devastating ice age that leaves nothing other than a few survivors who took shelter on a massive train, Snowpiercer, that continuously circles the globe. Guests aboard, see a class system reminiscent of the Titanic, where the elite are separated from the poverty-stricken, living very different existences on opposite ends of the train.
Now, after guest starring on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “GLEE,” and “Parenthood,” among others, eight-year-old Marcanthonee stars alongside some of Hollywood’s elite. Filming in Prague, Marcanthonee stars as the son of Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer. Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton, and Oscar nominated actors John Hurt and Ed Harris also star in this dramatic thriller, where Marcanthonee delivers a performance that has sealed his fate as the most-sought after child actor in Hollywood.
