Netflix’s “Heartstopper” Star Kit Connor Speaks On How Hard It Was Being A Kid Actor

Netflix heartstopper kit Connor

Kit Connor may be on one of the biggest TV shows ever today but it wasn’t always so easy for him and especially when he was younger trying to break into the industry!!

Kit spoke with Hunger TV and shared:

Trying to break into the entertainment industry at such a young age is not easy m, it’s intense, gruelling and requires a thick skin. He admitted that his work as a child actor took its toll. At one point, he was attending three auditions a day, five days per week taking him away from school and the chance to live a life that resembled that of his peers.

He continued: “You have to deal with rejection quite quickly. If you can’t, then it’s going to be tough for you,”. “There was a film that I was really excited about doing, I really liked the director, I really loved the script. I got down to the last two kids for the role and then I actually got told by the director that he wanted me. I thought, ‘This is my Steven Spielberg ET moment,’ and then we did a screen test and I think the studio decided I didn’t quite fit with the role. I was definitely very upset. Since then, I’ve never taken things for granted until they tell me officially that I have won the part. I almost always expect to be rejected, which is a good mindset. It’s a slightly sad mindset, but it’s a good mindset.”

Kit is now the star of one of Netflix biggest shows “Heartstopper” that recently received a two season order.
