Conversation with Pedrea Jackson shortly after winning a prestigious award in Sydney last month.
Pedrea Jackson had no prior experience in acting when he stumbled on an ad to audition for the lead role in Dylan River's movie Robbie Hood.
The movie which is now showing on SBS On Demand has been a raving success with the public and won accolades among industry critics taking the 2019 AACTA Award for Best Online Drama or Comedy.
In the sidelines of this major recognition Pedrea Jackson told NITV Radio that he now enjoys being in the spotlight and feels capable of taking on other roles including playing action hero characters like The Avengers.
His sister, Macy Jackon, who accompanied him to NITV Radio studios says acting has helped Pedrea step out of his comfort zone.
Pedrea encourages young people in his community to follow in his footsteps, embrace acting and not left fear get in their way.
