Early life and education[edit]

Jax Malcolm was born July 12, 2003,[2] in West Covina, California. He first showed an interest in acting at the age of 5 after asking his parents why he was not on television like other children. From there, his family hired an agent, which led to his first appearance in a PSA for Smart Power.[3]

His first acting credits include roles in the 2010 film Dark Crossing and the TV shows Redeeming Dave, Comedy Bang! Bang! and Kroll Show. By the age of 12, Jax had also appeared in The Birthday Boys, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend[4] and About Scout.[5]

In 2015, Jax guest starred in an episode of The League titled "The Great Night of Shiva". His appearance on this episode earned him a nomination to the 2016 Young Entertainer Awards for Best Guest Starring Young Actor 12 to 14 – Television Series, though he would ultimately lose the award to Graham Verchere.

In 2016, Jax was cast by the director of The Other Side of the Door, Johannes Roberts, to voice the main antagonist, Oliver.[6] The film is set in Mumbai and portrays antiques dealer Jeremy Sisto as Michael and Sarah Wayne Callies as Maria as they find themselves the grieving parents of a deceased son. This role marked Jax's debut as a voice actor as well as his debut in a film produced by a major film studio (20th Century Fox).[7]
