I love you to the moon and back!!! and like I explained in my last post about dad, that is a very, very, very long way, love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Likewise, Peter and Melissa find themselves blessed to have had such a talented child. Besides The Adam Project, Walker also appeared in the film Secret Headquarters in 2022. Also, he’s graced the stage of Entertainment Tonight and Today that same year.
This child actor began his acting while he was still in elementary school. But it was only after a trip to California, he decided to pursue a career professionally and started working on his craft.
He’s a big fan of superhero movies with favorites including Deadpool and Avengers: Endgame. And this was also the reason he was able to nail Ryan Reynolds’ impression in The Adam Project.
