Being a true beauty, both inside and out, it really is no wonder that Malachi Barton can charm even the hardest of hearts with a single smile alone! Cute little dimples and all! Hehehe!
This amazing actor and singer has accomplished more in his fourteen years than any actors can claim in their entire career, and he has no intention of stopping any time soon. So the rest of those slackers had better run to catch up. Because Malachi is knocking it out of the park right now!
Born in Virginia Beach, Virginia to his mother, Felicia, (Who is also a singer/songwriter, as well as a former contestant on Season 8 of the hit show, ‘American Idol’)…and his father who was a former priest…Malachi is, quite literally, the ‘Son Of A Preacher Man’. Hehehe, which is very cool, indeed.
With both his musical talent as well as his acting talents, Malachi has been racking up new roles left and right lately. He started out, as many child actors do these days, from an extremely young age. In his case, he was only four years old when he began doing a number of TV commercials and ads, which led to bigger TV roles, and soon even found himself being chosen to be an official Disney kid, opening him up to a number of other opportunities where he seemed to thrive. (I swear…Disney just keeps picking the cutest, most adorable, boys ever to be in their shows! That can’t all just be a mistake! Hehehe!) And if it’s one thing Disney is good at…it’s promoting its stars! He’s worked on Disney Channel shows such as “Stuck In The Middle”, “Just Roll With It”, “Fancy Nancy”, “Henry Danger”, and more. Even including a role as a young ‘Diego’ in the movie, “Dora And The Lost City Of Gold”, and singing spot on “Dancing With The Stars”.
Yeah…Malachi has definitely been hard at work these days!
His newest project is his role as ‘Marshall’ in a little something special for the Halloween crowd called “Under Wraps”, a family comedy about a group of pre-teens who find and make friends with an ancient mummy from ancient Egypt…
Malachi says that he was really excited to finally get his reward for being so popular on the Disney Channel…his Disney wand! You know…that thing where the actors and actresses get to do the little bumper adds for the channel during the commercial breaks? I guess that’s a thing that’s considered a rite of passage over there. In which case…CONGRATS, Malachi! Hehehe! Well deserved! 🙂
He’s also really excited about “Under Wraps”, and was overjoyed to actually see his face on a giant billboard while driving to a movie release outing one day. Something that I can only imagine would be a totally bizarre experience!
But, all of that craziness aside, he still seems to be a cool and humble teen that’s just enjoying the fruits of his labor for now.
About his role in the “Under Wraps” movie, Malachi says, “The one quality that ‘Marshall’ has that I most relate to is definitely his obsession with monsters! I mean, personally, I love horror movies, and I love Halloween, and I think it’s the same with Marshall!” (His favorite being the Shining)
Good call! But don’t make that one your all time favorite just yet! Hehehe…you’ve got MANY more to watch, trust me!
Either way, he’s definitely on his way to bigger and better things, and it looks like the industry is ready to welcome him with open arms. Charm, charisma, acting, dancing, singing, plays instruments, undeniable boyish beauty…yeah, people are certainly going to notice all of that right off the bat. He’s a very promising talent, to say the least. And if he keeps climbing that ladder as fast as he has been these past few years, he’ll have his face being posted on billboards worldwide before he even knew what hit him!
