Child Actor is an American indie pop duo consisting of Max Heath and Natalie Plaza.[2][3]

History[edit]

Child Actor was formed by cousins Max Heath and Sedgie Ogilvy.[2] They released the Partner EP in February 2012[4] and the Window EP in July 2012.[5]

Their first album, Victory, was released on Fake Four Inc. on October 16, 2012.[6] Don Yates of KEXP-FM described the album as "an impressive set of maximalist, R&B-tinged electro-pop with a huge, lush sound featuring walls of glittering synths, hip hop-influenced rhythms, chopped samples, wispy vocals and sugary pop melodies."[7] Alyce Currier of Earmilk said, "With more emotional staying power than a lot of music caught up in today's rapid release cycle, I think this one is a keeper."[8]

Ogilvy left Child Actor in December 2012 with Natalie Plaza taking her place.[3]

Child Actor released their sophomore album, Never Die, in September 2014.[9]
