When Jace Norman made his first splash on TV, no one knew a few years later he’d become one of the biggest Nickelodeon stars we’ve ever seen! Today, Jace plays Henry Hart on Dan Schneider’s hit show “Henry Danger.” Henry is just a regular teenager who just so happens to moonlight as a sidekick to his town’s local superhero, Captain Man.
16-year-old Jace has a devoted following and ginormous fanbase, and his nomination as Favorite Male TV Star at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards proves why: this kid has so much star quality, it’s practically coming out his ears! The 30th annual KCA will be a big deal Jace and the “Henry Danger” cast and crew, because — guess what — the show has been nominated too!
And if you have any doubts, here are three reasons we think Jace Norman is an AWESOME choice for Favorite Male TV Star:
1. He’s amazing on “Henry Danger”
As protagonist Henry Hart, Jace Norman is the “Hart” (get it?) and soul of “Henry Danger.” His character is the sidekick to Captain Man— the town of Swellview’s resident superhero.
Henry’s character connects with fans deeply — how could he not? Because he’s a normal kid with an extraordinary job, he reminds us that regular people can (and do!) amazing things all of the time. His charm is infectious, his acting is great, and he does a great job keeping fans hooked to his zany antics and those of the entire cast.
2. He’s a dedicated actor (and super nice guy)
Born in Corrales, New Mexico, Jace is the youngest of three kids, and super close with his older brother and sister! Jace started acting at 12 when he landed a role on Disney’s “Jessie” after his first-ever audition. This set into motion an exciting TV career we are so excited to watch unfold!
Jace’s dedication to acting definitely shows, and is made even clearer in light of his dyslexia, which makes scripts a challenge for him. “I spend most of my days reading scripts out loud in front of large groups of people and memorizing lines,” Jace shared recently. “I don’t know how I do it, but I think because I love acting I force myself to do them even though it is really, really hard for me.”
It’s obvious that his love for acting has helped him to overcome this struggle, and we really respect his dedication and process.
3. He loves dogs… and plays one too!
Jace may be the star on “Henry Danger,” but Jace’s real-life dog, named Henry after his character, is often the star of his Instagram photos. The two definitely have a super-special bond, so it’s no surprise that the canine connection goes even further: Jace plays a dog that turns into a human in the Nickelodeon TV Movie “Rufus” and its sequel “Rufus 2.”
So there you have it — three reasons we love Jace Norman and think he’d be a fantastic choice for a Kids’ Choice Award. Let us know why you think he should win in the comments, or Tweet @DanWarp!
