Will Shadley Bio
You probably know Will Shadley as Ian in The Spy Next Door, which is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on May 18, 2010. Well, this talented young actor has quite a lot of work under his belt. Check out his bio below.
Will Shadley was born in Winter Park, Florida, where he started his career at the extremely young age of … 3! It’s true. Will posed for print ads and TV commercials for companies like Eddie Bauer and Disney. But it wasn’t until he landed the role of Tiny Tim in a theater production of A Christmas Carole that he discovered a passion for acting. He hasn't looked back since.
Before landing a role in The Spy Next Door, Will filmed a movie exclusively for the Hallmark Channel called Love Will Keep Us Together, about a workaholic ad agency exec who loses everything (we’re talking his job, life and wife) and has to play the role of "Mr. Dad" to Will. Will has also acted on an ABC TV show.
Onscreen acting isn’t the only thing this multi-talented kid does. Will loves lending his voice to animated projects. You can hear him in Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, among others films.
Even as his career is thriving, Will still manages to find the time to be a regular kid. Will is an avid basketball and chess player. And, since working with Jackie Chan on The Spy Next Door, he’s found a new appreciation for the mixed martial arts. Hi-ya!
