BEAM: Chicken Little’s Truth


So what’s up next for the emerging teenage heartthrob? Believe it or not, Max isn’t quite sure how long he wants to stay in the acting business. His other passion is video games, and he hopes to make his hobby more of a career in the future. 

Until then, don’t expect Max to go the way of some of the more notorious child celebrities. He and his mother still live in a one-bedroom studio apartment, a fact he said challenges a general preconception of actors.  

“I think it’s important to remember that not all actors are famous and rich. I’m nowhere near even well-off,” Max said. “I just stay grounded. I don’t do anything to get a big head or go to parties. I’m just a kid.”

If you like some great science fiction, make sure to check out “Falling Skies” every Sunday at 10 p.m. on TNT.
