Kolton Stewart BIO

Kolton Stewart is a multi-talented 17-year-old originally from Toronto, Ontario who already has quite a background in the entertainment world as an actor, musician, dancer, and singer. Currently, Kolton stars in YTV’s Some Assembly Required for which he won “Best Performance in a TV Series - Leading Young Actor” this year at the 36th Annual Young Artist Awards (YAA) in Los Angeles, joining the likes of Brad Pitt, Zac Efron, and Leonardo DiCaprio as a recipient of the prestigious award.

Discovering his passion for performance young, Kolton began playing the drums at age two. He won several talent contests and awards, like the internationally renowned Percussive Arts Society’s Larrie Londin Scholarship, and competed around the world with youth and adult pipe & drum bands before his tenth birthday. Also extremely athletic, he was devastated by a season-ending football injury in 2007; while sidelined, he decided to pursue the theater, auditioning for The Stratford Festival Theater’s production of Music Man in a full leg cast. In 2010, after landing that part and a few others, he became the first Canadian child in the history of The Lion King to join the Broadway musical as Young Simba. Shortly after his tour concluded, he decided to audition for television and movies and was soon cast in both mediums. Kolton was also asked by Ellen DeGeneres to perform on her show in 2012 after she saw his first YouTube video, a cover of Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up,” which went viral, garnering several thousand hits its first week.

Whether it is singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or acting, Kolton is passionate about his artistry as a performer. “I knew as soon as I stepped on stage that I was hooked for life,” he said. “There was no turning back.”

In addition to his continued role on Some Assembly Required, now in its third season, Kolton recently finished filming two upcoming movies, Angels in the Snow and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and is also working on his debut album. Kolton has had an amazing journey and is grateful for the incredible experiences he has had so far. The sky is (not) the limit for Kolton as he continues to pursue his dreams.
