Biography: Trevor Michael Gagnon was born September 1995, in Thousand Oaks, California. Trevor is a very precocious and outgoing little boy. He loves meeting new people and being the center of attention. When he was 6, he showed an interest in acting. So we contacted a local talent agency and asked if they thought Trevor had "what it took" to become an actor. They didn't waste any time getting him signed.
His first role was in an HBO movie titled "Iron Jawed Angels". IJA is an amazing drama about the struggles that women had obtaining equality and their triumph with the Women's Suffrage Movement in the early 1900's. The movie starred Hillary Swank, Angelica Houston, and Patrick Dempsey.
In January 2002, right on the heels of filming "Iron Jawed Angels", Trevor found himself auditioning for the most coveted commercial contract of any child actor - the national Welch's grape juice spokes child. Despite huge competition, he ended up in the top 4 out of 2500 kids across the country. It was a great learning experience for him even though he didn't end up with the job.
"Big Fish" was the next big opportunity to come his way. After a long and involved audition process, he landed the part of Will's son. Billy Crudup, Albert Finney, Jessica Lange, Danny DeVito, and Ewan McGregor and helped create the magic in this wonderful film directed by Tim Burton.
Since 2003, Trevor has done several commercials and two additional movies (Loggerheads and Southern Belles), all of which were smaller productions. So, in February 2005, in an effort to help jumpstart his "career", his managers suggested that he give pilot season a try. So, Trevor and mom packed up and went to Hollywood for 6 weeks. During the first four weeks, he had auditions for many different types of projects. He came close on a few but couldn't seem to land anything. In his fifth week, however, he booked a leading role on a new sitcom pilot for CBS titled "Old Christine", in which he plays opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus as her 9-year-old son.
When he is not acting, Trevor enjoys reading, baseball playing with his brother and friends and camping with his family. He loves the spotlight and can't wait to see what comes next.
