Casey Simpson has successfully transformed his ineptitude into a venture. As a child, he loved talking and was a bit of a nerd but that was exactly what got him into the acting arena at the age of 3. Since then, he has achieved success in acting, becoming a child celebrity as well as a social media personality, where he is building an empire comparable to actors and actresses that are decades older.
Casey Simpson Bio, Age
Maybe because he was born on the lap of entertainment or maybe he was born to add to the spice of showbiz, whatever the case was, he took to acting really quick. Casey West Simpson, born on the 6th of April 2004 in Los Angeles, California started his acting career as early as the age of three.
In 2007, he landed a gig on Frank TV in a comedy skit called Santa. The opportunity came about when his mom took him along with his sister who was an aspiring actress to try out for a local acting agency. His talent was immediately discovered by some agents who worked there while he talked with them. Although it was his sister who was the aspirant, Casey was signed to the agency and has been acting since then.
Subsequently, he has featured in numerous commercials. He has also evolved into a fine actor with roles in series such as Demi Moore‘s Lifetime television movie Five (2011), ABC’s The Goldbergs (2014) and films such as Memoria (2014), Bukowski (2015), Escape from Mr Lemoncello’s Library (2017) as well as a voice role in Despicable Me 2 in 2013. However, the prodigy became a household name when he was cast the following year as one of the lead characters as Ricky Harper on the hit Nickelodeon series, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn (2014-present) alongside Mace Coronel, Aidan Gallagher and Lizzy Greene.
As a child too, he not only took to acting but also loves memorizing even if it means learning on his own. As a testament, Casey Simpson knows the 44 US presidents by heart, can say the alphabet backward, and even the state capitals. He also loves to solve riddles, is a talented rapper and might even have some original music coming soon. He has earned recognition for his performances with nominations for a Kids Choice Award in 2016 and 2017.
Where Is He Now?
While starring in his explosive role as Ricky on the Nickelodeon series, Casey started building a social media empire in 2015. He launched his Musical.ly account where he started posting hilarious videos. With his consistent and qualitative videos, he became a phenom therein with over 5 million fans. Interestingly, he has garnered more followers on social media than watch the show
He is also prominent for his slick dance moves and impressive lip-syncing, enchanting his followers on the platform since he debuted there. Besides musical.ly, he is also a force to reckon with on other social media apps like YouTube and Instagram where he has amassed a combined following of more than 8 million who he refers as to #Caseynators.
When he is not acting or connecting with his fans on social media, he loves to sing and play sports.
Casey Simpson Family, Siblings
The star was one of two children born to his parents and has an older sister named Sabrina (b. March 22, 1998). His folks’ names are not available probably for privacy sake, but that does not keep him from sharing beautiful moments with them on social media. He often flaunts his relationship with his mother and sister but surprisingly, he hardly mentions his father in his posts.
However, that does not negate the fact that his parents must really be proud of their son for achieving so much fame and fortune in his young career that many adults could only dream of. Perhaps as he gets older and further grows his career, he might let us in on their names.
Simpson is growing into a handsome bloke and as such, has many eyes set on him. That notwithstanding, he doesn’t have a girlfriend yet, at least not one that we know of and it can be deduced that he is busy focusing on his career and his stardom and doesn’t have the luxury of time and commitment to get tangled in datings.
However, being a star, he has been linked with several girls including MacKenzie Ziegler in 2016 and Jayden Bartels in 2017. Hopefully, he will share details about his relationship as soon as it happens.
Casey Simpson is still a young lad as he hasn’t reached the age of maturity at which point he would have stopped growing. That said, he might add a few more inches to his 5 feet 4 inches (1.63 m) height. He is also adored for his cute physique armed with a charming smile and further embellished with pretty blue eyes and signature blonde hair.
