Introduction: Who I Am

Kameron Badgers Headshots July 2016My name is Kameron Rie Badgers. I’m an actor, circus performer, and student at Lake Highlands High School.

I’m 15 years old, and I live with my grandparents and four dogs named Jasmine, Jack, Raglan, and Suchi. Jasmine is a medium-sized dog who is part German Shepherd and several other breeds. Jack is a big guy — he weighs almost as much as me, and he’s taller than I am when he stands on his hind legs. He’s part Irish Setter and part Australian Shepherd, so he’s really pretty: think of a caramel, black and white Irish Setter with the big plumed tail and the “feathery” tips on his legs.

Raglan and Suchi are Tibetan Terriers. Jack and Jasmine came from the pound, but Raglan and Suchi come from a famous breeder who wins all kinds of big awards for her dogs. Raglan and Suchi aren’t show dogs, though. They’re just part of the family. My grandma calls them Tibetan Terrorists sometimes because they love to play and chew things up.

I play guitar, juggle, and like to “base” acrobatic pyramids. I also love aerial silks and trapeze. I perform with and take classes with the Lone Star Circus School and I also perform at private parties, street fairs and festivals.  The Lone Star Circus School is the BEST place for kids who love circus. The teachers are awesome.

We work hard, but we have lots of fun.  You don’t have to know anything at all about gymnastics or dance or circus to come to a class — I didn’t. Everybody can be in the circus!

Kameron Badgers & Julio FurlanI take classes with Julio Ramazini at Lone Star — he’s fabulous! This spring, I got to perform with him in a routine that included clowning and juggling. That was so much fun! This summer was my fourth year at Circus Smirkus, in Vermont. It’s awesome – I can’t wait for my next trip!

I’m an actor, and I’ve worked on several movies and TV shows. I take acting classes from Nancy Chartier. (If you’re a fan of the Netflix series Longmire, be sure to catch her this season!) She’s great, and she teaches kids, teens, and adults — so many famous faces come through the door there.  I found out about Nancy from my agent, Linda McAlister of Linda McAlister Talent.

A lot of the best actors in this area are on Linda McAlister Talent’s roster — and so are a lot of the big names in Hollywood. I feel pretty lucky to get to work with such cool people, who really know all about helping a kid actor get started in the movie business even though I’m still pretty much a beginner when it comes to acting.

The thing that I like most is spending time with my family.  We like to go to live shows (magic, circus, theater, and concerts), and to travel. I’ve been to a lot of places (New York City, Boston, Nashville). This summer, we decided to drive home from summer camp in Vermont, and we went to Niagara Falls, Ohio, Pennsylvania, upstate New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas. I was only home for one day before I left for Las Vegas. I can’t wait for the next trip!

You can find me on Twitter as @kameronbadgers, and on Facebook as Kameron Badgers, or on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) at http://www.imdb.me/kameronbadgers.  I have a YouTube Channel where I have been uploading videos from the circus, school events, and other things. I want to do more of that when I get time.

  6. Hi Kameron! Nancy Chartier was my associate coach at R.E.A.C.T. for 17 years. She’s great with kids and teens!!!!

  7. I agree, Ms. Condrey — Nancy Chartier is a great teacher! I have been in two or three movies where every person under 21 in the film was one of her students. I feel lucky to be in her classes. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. Hi Kameron, I was looking for information on how fast radish seeds grow (I needed answers right away, so I couldn’t just go out and plant some myself) and I stumbled across your blog. You are one impressive kid, and a really engaging writer. Keep it up!

  9. Kameron, Can you email me a link for your complete Seedling/EMF project? What I saw on the web was before the Science Fair and you said complete work would be posted after the Fair. Thank you!
