Aramis Knight is remembered fondly by his growing pool of fans for playing the character, Bean in the movie Ender’s Game and for portraying M.K in AMC’s critically acclaimed series, Into the Badlands.
Knight has maintained a steadily growing string of television roles and few movie inclusions since he came on the scene in a minor role in Invasion in 2005. Aramis also remains one of the few actors to have played roles – albeit minor ones in his case – on both Marvel and DC Entertainment’s roster.
Aramis Knight – Bio
The actor was born on October 3, 1999, in Woodland Hills, California. Aramis has kept mum about his childhood years and his experiences growing up. Similarly, nothing is known about his education or any other part of his non-professional life.
All the information that is available is concerning his ethnicity. The actor is of Indian and Pakistani heritage, thanks to his father. From his mother, Rhonda Knight, he also inherited German, English, and Irish ancestry.
His interest in acting was triggered at an early age. His mother enrolled him in acting classes from the tender age of four. This would lead to the phase of his career that saw him appear in commercials and subsequently, minor screen roles.
