Six-year-old Greensville boy lands first movie role

News Nov 19, 2009 Ancaster News

He’s only six years old and, most of the time, he’s just ‘one of the kids’ in the Grade 1 class.

But don’t let his tender age and youthful exuberance fool you: Login Wilson has already won several modelling awards and recently completed his first acting job in a Hallmark Channel original movie scheduled to premiere next year.

Filming for The Wild Girl took place recently at the nearby Kelso Quarry in Milton and Login was “on set” five times over the space of three weeks to play the role of Geraldo Heurta, a four-year- old Mexican boy kidnapped by Apaches during the 1930s. With the local quarry substituting for northwest Mexico, the cast and crew laboured long hours to complete the filming.

“One of the nights, I stayed up all night,” Login said proudly.

His mother, Robin Leworthy-Wilson explained filming went until 5 a. m. and her son showed real commitment by sticking with it through the night. In fact, cast and crew were so appreciative “they gave him a standing ovation,” she said.

Login had his own trailer with his name on it, and according to his mom, was treated like royalty by everyone involved in the production. He ate well, had wardrobe ladies looking after his hair and makeup needs, and best of all, while he waited for his time on set, he got to play video games.

Describing the whole experience as “very cool,” Login said he likes working with other actors and enjoyed being around horses. At school, he also enjoys telling his classmates what it’s like to be in a movie.

His mom, dad Jim and seven-year-old sister, Aerial, are all proud of Login’s accomplishments on stage and on the screen. Last summer, his aptitude for the performing arts shone when he won seven awards for his acting and modelling abilities at the iPOP (International Presentation of Performers) competition in Vancouver.

His success at the competition convinced one of his teachers at the John Robert Powers School for aspiring models and actors in Toronto that Login was ready to move on to professional acting.

His parents hired Toronto talent agent Kathy Gaitt of K. G. Talent to help land roles for him in movies. Gaitt said Login has the right personality for a film star.

“He’s a very personable little boy, very outgoing and able to talk with adults.”

Gaitt said Login got the role in the Hallmark Channel movie quite easily. Despite the fact he hadn’t had very many auditions, he had no difficulty in impressing the casting director with his flair for the dramatic.

Login’s mom feels acting is an important outlet for her son to focus his energies. She says as long as he is happy and likes what he is doing, he’ll continue his work in the performing arts.

The family is hopeful that a Canadian network will pick up the Hallmark Channel movie that also stars Brian Austin Green and Graham Greene.

The Wild Girl is being produced by Muse Entertainment Productions of Montreal and is based on a book by the same name by American author Jim Fergus. The movie title refers to a young Apache girl found by a group of Americans who hope to trade her for the kidnapped son of a wealthy Mexican landowner.
