Nash Grier has come a long way since he first burst onto the Vine scene and quickly became one of the most buzzed-about social media stars, whether it was good or bad. As part of the OG MagCon crew, he became one of the most recognizable faces on the Internet and with those piercing blue eyes, it's easy to see why. But since the hype around well being a web star has died down a bit what has Nash been up to? Well, he's actually been super busy really getting into his acting career and had roles in projects you might not even know about.
OK, so we all know he starred in the movie The Outfield alongside fellow social media king Cameron Dallas in 2015, marking his movie debut as Jack Sanders the baseball player who is torn between the sport and his true passion, art.
From there, he starred in the Fullscreen series The Deleted, and in the AwesomenessTV series High School Cupid, a Cupid Inc. Story. Just recently, he starred in the Netflix movie You Get Me, which co-starred Bella Thorne. So he's really been getting out there, doing this acting thing. But along with these on-camera roles, he's also done voiceover work too. Nash was the voice of a mouse named Gavin in the animated movie, Air Bound back in 2015 and he just recently shared a pic of the DVD he happened to have laying around. Casual.
He sent a follow-up tweet letting everyone know voicing animated characters is something he's actually very passionate about and has more in the works.
I love animated movies/shows. Get ready for a few more projects in that realm 😏

According to the official IMDB page, he recorded the voice ole of Trey in the upcoming animated film, Gnome Alone, which is set to be released in 2018 and features a star-studded cast of Olivia Holt, Becky G, Josh Peck and George Lopez. Who knew Nash's true calling was a voice-acting career? As he once said in an interview in 2016, telling stories has always been the goal.
"What I want to do is tell stories. I want to bring stories to life. I started doing that naturally, without even knowing it, as a kid – on a phone, on a desktop computer, I started to tell stories, to record stories, and eventually fell in love with the whole language of telling stories," Nash explained. And so it seems animated movies are his next big project, which is something when you first followed him on every social media platform all these years ago you prob never expected! Along with acting though, Nash is still posting YouTube videos, focusing on creating visual storytelling there too. Plus, he's head over heels in love with his longtime girlfriend Taylor Giavasis and they just recently moved into a place together too.
So yeah, Nash is still slaying the game.
