Mini Bio (1)

Lucas Cruikshank is a teenage director and actor who got his start by making videos with his cousins John and Katie, and posting them on You Tube. Together, the trio is known as JKL Productions. Lucas decided to make videos by himself a while after he came up with the character you all love, Fred, who is an annoying 6-year-old with an uncaring mother and is most noted for his sped-up voice. Lucas said that he created the first Fred video to poke fun at video bloggers who talk about every single thing that they're doing in the video. The first video received tons of positive feedback, and Lucas continued to post videos in the Fred series, which he edits, directs, and acts in by himself. When not making videos, Lucas auditions for movie and TV roles, and also pitches ideas to television channels. He is also a dancer and takes jazz, tap, and hip-hop classes. Lucas resides in Columbus, Nebraska, with his two brothers and five sisters. He is the middle child.
