Jack Champion is capturing hearts and screens alike since his debut as Spider in Avatar: The Way of Water! Hailing from Virginia, this rising star has quickly made a name for himself in Hollywood and beyond. Keep reading to learn more about the young Hollywood star.

Early Beginnings and Breakthrough Roles

Born on November 16, 2004 (a Libra), Jack is originally from Virginia. His journey into the world of acting began at the age of 8, sparked by his mother’s encouragement. A microbiologist by profession, she fostered Jack’s budding interest in the arts, setting him on a path that would lead to remarkable achievements.

“So, I grew up in a small town in Virginia,” he told Man About Town in 2023. “I was never competitive in ball sports as a kid so I just very much leaned towards the theatre and the arts. Then, at around 10 years old, my mum really helped with the transition into film acting with short films, helping to build my résumé and get a small agent. I think for my whole life I have always been into the whole acting thing. 

In 2015, Jack made his mark with a memorable appearance in the documentary series American Genius. His talent caught the attention of audiences and industry insiders alike, propelling him towards more significant roles, like in the 2019 blockbuster Avengers: Endgame.

Jack’s career soared to new heights when he took on the role of Spider, a human teenager navigating the lush and dangerous world of Pandora in Avatar: The Way of Water. This eagerly anticipated sequel to James Cameron‘s epic saga has not only showcased Jack’s acting prowess but also endeared him to a global audience, especially among young fans.

His versatility as an actor was further highlighted in Scream VI, where he portrayed Ethan Landry in the gripping slasher film.
