The Big Bang Theory‘s spin-off series, Young Sheldon, is proving itself just as important to the CBS network. The show premiered to over 17.2 million viewers and has already been ordered for a second season. Behind its success is a whole host of talented young performers, including Montana Jordan.
Who Is Montana Jordan?
Who is Montana Jordan, you ask? Well, he’s the smart young actor who played Georgie Junior on The Big Bang Theory‘s spin-off series Young Sheldon. The 14-year-old actor has brought quite a splash to the set. Plus, he’s growing his fan base exponentially with strategic social-media use.
Montana was only 12 when his friends and family nearly pushed him into an acting career. He didn’t dream of the big stages and bright lights as many show-biz kids do. He’s from Ore City, Texas; a quiet little town in the lone star state. Montana had never had any formal training or acting experience. However, his fellow small-town dwellers, along with friends and family saw something in him. The kid had natural talent. People realized he had enough enthusiasm for Hollywood.
He decided to go to a casting call for a movie called The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. To his surprise, he was awarded the role- ahead of nearly 10,000 other hopefuls. Whether it was luck or talent, this job catapulted him to where he is today. Young Sheldon is only his second acting job. That’s a pretty great career so far.
Social Media Takeover
Montana Jordan might not be formally trained but he is smart. He, his parents, and his agents realize that today’s actor has to be multi-talented, and acting isn’t all that matters. In today’s Hollywood casting agents consider social media followings and fan bases just as much as true acting gumption. That’s why Montana is brilliant for his online vlogs. He uses his YouTube account to show fans behind the scenes vlogs from the set. In one particular video, he took a tour of MeeMaw’s house with his iPhone. The video has nearly 90,000 views. His channel has over 3,000 subscribers and is growing daily.
Even after Young Sheldon is over, he’ll be able to use this large platform to create other opportunities for himself. Then people won’t have to ask “Who is Montana Jordan?”
