Career as an actor
Izzy made his debut film appearance in 2012 when he was seven years old, but gained recognition only after being featured in the short film “Star Stuff: The Story of Carl Sagan” shot in 2015. Carl Sagan was born on 9 November 1934 and died on 20 December 1996 from bone marrow cancer, and was an astronomer, educator, and author; the short film follows his life, especially his love of life as Carl married three times.
In 2017 Izzy was invited to appear in the “Party Dress” short drama film, which stars Lily Ewald, Alexandra Girellini, and follows Harper Klein who is celebrating his 12th birthday wearing a pink party dress. In the same year, he was cast to portray Tween One in the “Brad’s Status” comedy drama film, which stars Ben Stiller and Austin Abrams and follows a father who is taking his son to see the colleges on the East Coast, while he meets a friend along the way who makes him feel bad for the life he’s living.
Izzy became somewhat famous after being invited to play Sadie Marks in the “Good Girls” comedy crime TV series, which began airing in 2018.

Love life and relationships
Izzy was born as a girl, but has made it clear from a very early age that he wants to act as a boy and wants to dress as a boy. People became aware of this only after Izzy began portraying a transgender person in the “Dress Party” TV series, and while some people have judged the actor for making these kind of decisions at such an early age, others, including the LGBT community, have stood in his defence.
Rumor has it that the popular actor is currently dating a girl whom he met on the set of “Good Girls”, and that the two have been together for two years now. He often uploads pictures with girls onto his Instagram account, and while most of these are some of his closest friends, apparently he hasn’t uploaded a single picture of the girl he is rumored to be dating.
