Colt Prattes is best described as a total package: he is an actor, a dancer, a stuntman, writer, and of course, a social media sensation. The multifaceted personality began his career professionally as a dancer.
He had his career breakthrough in 2017 after he was hired to play the fictional character Johnny Castle in ABC’s remake of the 80’s classic film, Dirty Dancing. When Colt was newly unveiled as Patrick Swayze’s replacement, a lot of people were deeply sceptical about his ability to fill in Swayze‘s shoes. But viewers’ confidence was eventually restored after his personality was unpacked.
When Prattes is not working out or spending time with his family or dancing, he usually writes. He reportedly writes for a newly-launched men’s lifestyle blog called New Age Gents.
