“He’s just a raw talent. He’s got a heart of gold,” Allison Clark told the Sun-Times.
She said that he started playing drums aged three by hitting pots and pans.
He broke into the movie busness aged 12 with School of Rock.
His mother said he had no acting experience but loved it after being brought to the audition by a friend.
Clark "was so skilled in his performances that each one demanded a standing ovation from the audience, and he's been using his talents ever since," reads IMDb page.
“He just kind of shined,” Allison said of her son. “He took it on right away, but he never really acted afterward.”
