top 10 biggest Youtube stars and creators who played in popular films
Many people hope to reach YouTube fame, but not everyone can achieve it. Over the past 10 years the platform has launched the careers of several actors. Many of them got their start in small roles, and the YouTubers on this list are setting themselves up for careers on the big screen!
Bo Burnham has come a long way since his YouTube and Vine days. He has his own Netflix stand up special, but he started with a much smaller role on the big screen. Though it wasn’t the longest role of his career, Bo had a small cameo as the bartender in “Hall Pass”. This was one of the first times the film industry took advantage of a YouTuber’s online presence, which has proved to be a new industry standard. If you have over a million followers online, it makes you more likely to be cast in small roles in TV and Movies.
Another YouTube star who has been able to break into the film world is Troye Sivan.Troye Sivan started making YouTube videos at the age of 11, and it proved to pay off when he was 14. The YouTuber didn’t have just a cameo in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” he actually played young Wolverine. The movie is about the origins of one of X-Men’s most beloved characters, and he got to play the role of young Logan, or James if you want to get technical. He also got to flex some serious acting muscles, which were pretty impressive!
Of course, these two aren’t the only ones to make the leap from computer screens to the silver screen, and they won’t be the last. Be sure to keep a close eye out for more movies that have YouTuber’s hidden in them!
