If you’re born in South Africa we can claim you right? Even if you now live in another country. Joburg born actor and internet sensation Troye Sivan has been named as one of the The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 by TIME magazine. You’ll most likely recognise Troye as the lead actor from the Spud films, but he is also an internet sensation with over 2 million YouTube subscribers and recently is making a name for himself as a musician…his latest single topped iTunes sales charts in more than 50 countries.
And he’s not even 20 yet.
The rest of top 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 HERE are equally impressive and will make you feel like you’ve accomplished nothing in your life.
“The South African-Australian may have initially broken through as an actor—he snagged a role in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine after a Hollywood producer found him on YouTube—but he’s found major success this year as a musician. Thanks in large part to the support from his 2.8 million YouTube subscribers, Sivan’s latest EP, TRXYE, which he recorded in secret, topped iTunes sales charts in more than 50 countries following its August release.” [TIME]
