My Name is Akam Khiziryan. I am a Nashville based 19-year-old actor/model. My ethnic background is Kurdish, but I came to the United States when I was just 2 years of age and have been living in Nashville ever since. Growing up as a child, I quickly became fascinated with watching action movies and I began to dream that I will become an action movie star one day. I was and still am motivated and I continue to be inspired by icons such as Bruce Lee, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone, Jackie Chan and many others.
Currently, I have been acting for four plus years and I have been modeling for two years. In my journey thus far, I have had some incredible experiences and fallen more in love with acting as a career pursuit. A recent memorable project I was involved in was Morgan Freeman’s “The Story of God” season 3.
I am a very athletic person. I come from a family and a culture where soccer is a highly celebrated sport. Naturally then, I love soccer and I have been playing “the beautiful game” since I was five years old. I am also preparing for a near term project called “The Bank” for which I will cast on. This is a show about the game of soccer; hence, it has positively reinforced my active lifestyle. I train and practice on my soccer skills daily. I have also been actively involved in the martial arts. I believe anyone who desires to be an action star ought to familiarize themselves with different types of martial arts. I also combine my athletic lifestyle with yoga and meditation sessions throughout the week to help me focus and re-center myself.
I am always in search of new opportunities. My life long goal is to become an action movie star, and I will continue to strive for that dream.
