About Lewis

Lewis came from an average background with his only intentions from a young age were to head forward. Born on the 16th April in Chester hospital, England, Lewis was brought up around an average family who didn't have an eye for fame. He is the 2nd oldest of 3 siblings with a Welsh mother and English father.
Throughout his school life he attended Shotton Infant School, Taliesin Junior School and John Summers High School. During High School Lewis faced the difficulties of being bullied for being different from the beginning to end of High School where he only managed to make a small 'pack' of friends who were also 'outcasts' within the school.
In Year 9 of his High School year Lewis came up with the idea of his first novel - with no writing experience - and he began writing while planning as he went along his first novel 'Death In Disguise' where he was encouraged to post it up onto a popular website called 'Fictionpress.com' where people could view his writing for free. From there he began his first ambition to become a publisher author.
Lewis was a lover for movies, specifically the horror, crime, comedy, romance and thriller genre and never truly intended on joining show business until being aspired to by his role models from his favourite films - Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Jason Statham and Chloe Grace Moretz. Being aspired by these actors his intentions of becoming famous in the movie industry began and he took Drama/ Performing Arts as a G.C.S.E in his High School for 2 years.
With Lewis's final year of High School while finding difficulty in no success after submitting his story to publishers and trying to get acting & modeling parts but failed to gain any his married parents got a divorce which resulted in 4 different new homes by the time it was August 2014. The struggle and burden of his family being split up with his older brother living with his Dad in Shotton, Flintshire and he, his younger sister and Mum living in a small house in Connah's Quay, Flintshire where he also had to endure the dramatic change in his life where his Dad got a new girlfriend almost immediately after the break up.
Lewis didn't tell his parents of his ambitions until late 2014 after story writing and trying to get published, applying for acting roles, and writing movie scripts for over 2 years in secrecy. His parents were never supportive of his ambitions to become a teen model/ actor and wanted him to pursue a average life like they had but he never wanted to accept an average life and continued his pursuit in his ambitions and with yet being successful in achieving any of his goals he still tries and applies for numerous roles hoping that one day his dream will finally begin.
