Nov. 29 - Michael Duncan, Child Actor - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Nov. 29 - Michael Duncan, Child Actor

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA – Michael Duncan, 10, is a child actor thanks to Hollywood On The Shore. On Saturday, December 1st, a screening of his film "Christmas in Compton" will be held at Delmarva Evangelistic Community Center on Gordy Road in Salisbury. Tickets cost $5.00 but, attendees must also bring a toy or two canned goods to donate. That was all Duncan's idea.

He career started when director David Raynr contacted Tom Moses, who runs the local acting workshop, asking for a pair of child actors to an upcoming film.

Moses and Assistant Manager Lena Wallop did a casting call and auditioned multiple kids for the part. After Duncan and another young girl were chosen, they took them to Salisbury University to tape their auditions.

After two weeks, neither actor got the part for which they auditioned. However, Duncan impressed the producers so much that they decided to write him a new role for the movie.

Duncan, Wallop, and Duncan's mother flew out to Hollywood, California and was surprised on the outstanding treatment of the young actor. He was provided with his own trailer on location, his own make-up artists, and Duncan is now eligible to be in the Screen Actor's Guild.

 "Christmas in Compton" is directed by David Raynr and was released in early 2012.  Duncan was at the premier of the film in Cherry Hill, N.J.
