Life and career
He first gained interest in acting during high school, but kept getting kicked out of student plays. Nonetheless, he kept pursuing a career in acting. He gained a brief interest in music, but chose to focus on acting because that is where his passions lied.
MacDonald has recently expressed interest in directing feature films, and is close to directing his first one. He has directed three short films, one of which ("Sombre Zombie") aired on Bravo! Television.
He speaks Spanish and is fluent in French. He is also cousins with actor Jeff Roop, who played Drew French in Vampire High. He made his directorial debut in 2015 with the feature-length film Backcountry.
