Jacob Bertrand was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 6 March 2000 – his zodiac sign is Pisces, he holds American nationality and is 20 years-old as of mid-2020. He is an actor, probably best known for his portrayal of the title role in “Kirby Buckets”, the eponymous half-animated comedy series created by Mike Alber and Gabe Snyder, and which also starred Mekai Curtis and Cade Sutton. The series follows a 13 year-old boy whose drawings come to life, and it won Carsen Warner a nomination for a Young Entertainer Award for Best Guest Starring Young Actor – Television Series, while Olivia Stuck was nominated for a Young Entertainer Award for Best Leading Young Actress – Television Series.
Childhood and education
Jacob was raised in Los Angeles alongside his younger brother Blake and his older sister Makenna, by their father who is an accountant and their mother who is working as a nurse at a local hospital.
Jacob began acting at a very early age, as his parents arranged for him to attend acting classes at a local theatre when he was five years old. He made his debut appearance in 2007 when he voiced the Boy in the fantasy film “Mitch Albom’s For One More Day”, starring Michael Imperioli and Ellen Burstyn and which is about a suicidal man who gets to spend a day with his deceased mother – the film won one award and was nominated for 11 others, including a Primetime Emmy, while it served as a launch pad for Jacob’s career.
He was very sporting while attending high school as he played soccer and football, but was mostly focused on working his way up in the film industry – upon matriculation in 2018, Jacob didn’t enroll at college but chose to focus on acting.
Jacob’s roles in movies
The year 2008 saw Jacob portray a supporting character in the horror film “House”, directed by Robby Henson and written by Ted Dekker and Rob Green, but which failed to attract much attention. The following year, Jacob played Thomas Wilkins in the crime thriller movie “Duress”, about a man haunted by the visions of his wife who committed suicide.
Jacob voiced (uncredited) a kid in the drama film “November Christmas”, which starred Sam Elliott, John Corbett and Sarah Paulson, and which is about a young girl who is fighting cancer with the help of her family and in the same year, he appeared in the romantic comedy movie “How Do You Know”, the romantic comedy film “Little Fockers” and the short family video “The Burying Beetle”. He went on to make uncredited appearances in three movies in 2011 – “Water for Elephants”, “Beyond the Blackboard” and “Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer”, before he was invited to portray a supporting character in the short comedy film “Little in Common” which was directed by Adam Bernstein, and is about three families who become friends because their children are playing for the same football team.
In 2012, Jacob voiced a boy in the comedy family movie “Tooth Fairy 2” which received rather poor reviews, and played Danny in the comedy mystery film “Sunset Stories” which was written and directed by Ernesto Foronda, and is about two people who are looking for a missing cooler around Los Angeles – it was a critical success as it won three awards and was nominated for three others. The same year also saw Jacob play Baxter Campbell in the short family movie “The Lepidoctor”, which won Jonathan Barenboim a Student Film Award at Hamptons International Film Festival, and he also voiced Bluthe Hollow Townperson in the hit animated adventure comedy movie “ParaNorman”, which starred Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and won 19 awards while it was nominated for 46 others, including an Oscar for Best Animated Feature (Sam Fell).

Love life and relationships
Jacob has been keeping details of his love life hidden from the media’s attention, but it’s believed that he was romantically linked to the American actress and model Peyton Roi List, whom he starred alongside in the movie “The Swap” in 2016.
