Josh Wiggins, born November 2, 1998, is a successful actor with numerous movies under his belt. He is also an amateur singer with a self-published single. And while he has gotten a ton of positive reviews for his strong-willed performances, he was very nervous in his first acting role because he was acting alongside Aaron Paul, a three-time Emmy award winner. We are proud of Wiggins and will help you celebrate his special day right here.
Josh Wiggins’ boyish charm and superb acting skills have won him loads of fans. These attributes have also made him the darling of directors of coming-of-age films. Josh Wiggins was born on November 2, 1998, in Houston, Harris County, Texas. His parents are Jennifer and Steve Wiggins, and his zodiac sign is Scorpio. Wiggins grew up with his two older brothers, Jacob Wiggins and Luke Wiggins. His acting career took off when he was discovered by movie directors off some YouTube videos he did with friends. It was a funny turn of events as neither he nor his friends tried the videos to pitch to the filmmakers. The talent scouts just saw some videos off YouTube and contacted him to ask if he wanted to audition for a role in “Hellion” in 2014.
He hit pay dirt the following year when he landed a role in “Max” in 2015. That same year, he appeared in the action-thriller film “Lost in the Sun” with Josh Duhamel. The following year took Wiggins to Canada, where he starred in “Mean Dreams” (2016), a coming-of-age thriller where he also got the lead role.
In 2017, he was featured in “Walking Out,” a movie about a hunting trip that turned into a battle for survival, and “The Bachelors,” a drama. “The Bachelors” received good ratings from critics, and it further strengthened Wiggins’ reputation as a star. Wiggins played the lead role in Keith Behrman’s “Giant Little Ones” (2018), a movie that sheds light on teen sexuality.
