Meet the handsome and dapper young Native American men that are part of #RealNDNZRetakeHollywood
Noah Watts, from the Crow /Blackfeet nation in Montana is a talented actor and musician who’s charming good looks can be compared with James Dean, or even Elvis Presley and even to a young Bencio del toro. I’ve known of Noah for over eight years. I first met him when I produce a short film that he was cast in. I saw the natural talent in Noah and his range in his acting ability is amazing, I even compared him to others as the “Native” James Dean, and then when I saw him preform with his band, Nickel & Bones I saw that of young Elvis Presley on stage. Noah is an extremely talented young man and I do hope to see him in more films in the future.
Kholan Studie from the Cherokee nation, recently moved to Los Angeles from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Kholan has a classic charm which is why I compared him to a young Tony Curtis. Kholan has been studying acting since he was a kid, as he has a father that is an actor too. I met Kholan a few months ago, and immediately saw his ability and drive to become successful entertainer. What I admire about Kholan is his desire to become a positive role model to Native youth living on tribal reservation, which I definitely see him achieving.
Brian Vallie from the Crow Nation in Montana now lives in Los Angeles. Although he doesn’t have a strong desire to act, he does partner well with his girlfriend as Warren Beatty’s from Bonnie and Clyde. Brian moved to Los Angeles to work as a writer to change the negative perceptions of how people see and view Native peoples in film and television. Although his desire is not to become a actor, I think he would do fine in print, advertising and commercials with his tall lean physique.
