Kids who are keeping track of the live-action versions of The Fairly Oddparents probably noticed Travis Turner as a surly elf in Nickelodeon's Fairly Odd Christmas. And he looks so much like teen idol Chace Crawford (left) that even Nickelodeon can't tell them apart, misidentifying him on its "Teen Nick" website.
They may not know that the diminuitive, elfish 23-year old has a large following in his native Vancouver as a rapper and dj. He has released an album under the name Little T: Back to Basics.
Travis is an accomplished actor, performing in Midsummer Night's Dream and Lord of the Flies on stage, and in a number of tv series and movies in the comedy, drama, and teen gore genres. Often as threatened kids:
Chased by a serial killer dressed as the Easter Bunny in Easter Bunny Bloodbath (2010)
A boy imprisoned in a basement in Confined (2010).
A boy who turns an entire town into demons (with a little help from his brother) on Supernatural (2011).
Or sometimes just gay vague:
In Marley and Me: The Puppy Years (2011), Travis plays Bodi Grogan, the owner of a talking dog who causes mayhem at a dog show, but apparently breaks with "family movie" tradition by not getting a girlfriend.
He is currently starring as the gay-coded Astor in the Canadian teencom Some Assembly Required.
