Maple Ridge actor, 8, shortlisted for two national awards – Maple Ridge news

Bentley Storteboom’s hard work on camera begins to pay off early in his on-screen career.

The 8-year-old Maple Ridge resident was nominated for a pair of Joey Awards when he only had a year and a half of acting experience.

“He’s a little more successful so it’s pretty exciting,” said his mother, Jessica.

Bentley’s Joey Awards nominations are for Best Actor in an Commercial (ages 7-8) and Best Actor in a Student Short (ages 6-10).

The awards recognize young people from across Canada and will be presented in early November of this year.

Jessica said her son started taking an interest in the scene about three years ago.

“It wasn’t your typical boy who wanted to play soccer or sports,” she says.

“But he really liked the theater and the movies, and started asking about the kids on TV and how they got there.”

Jessica, who is a stay-at-home mom, and her husband, who runs a helicopter company, had no performing arts experience, so started investigating what it takes to get involved.

“It was totally new to us,” she says.

“But we found an agent who hired him, and his career started from there.

Bentley began to be featured in a few commercials, and has since worked on a network television show.

Her favorite perks of the gig are being on set and exploring different roles.

“He’s a very nice kid, but sometimes he plays a bully, which he finds a lot of fun.

The job came with its challenges for the young boy and his parents, however.

“He’s definitely keeping us very busy,” Jessica said. “He’s constantly auditioning for stuff and being taken to sets.”

She pointed out that C’usquenla Elementary School in Maple Ridge was very helpful in keeping him on top of his studies.

“They have been great providing me with their work and making sure it is always up to date,” Jessica said.

The young actor also had to learn some difficult life lessons in addition to his schoolwork.

“He goes to about 30 auditions before he lands a role,” Jessica said. “Most of the time it gets rejected.

“It’s not necessarily that he’s bad at what he does, but his look may not be perfect or he may not be tall enough.

“There’s tons of rejection, but he’s learning a good life lesson – hard work will lead to success.”
