Sawyer Bell
“Sawyer is years beyond his age when it comes to movie making. His performance was spot on. He's also professional, polite, prepared, and very fun on set. Keep an eye on this kid, he's going places.”

Dan Riddle, Director, The Last Possession

With big brown eyes and keen instincts, Sawyer Bell is an endearing, talented and focused young actor who consistently connects with his audience. Filmmakers say “he's 100% believable and there's a maturity in his performances that belie his young age.” They also praise his professionalism, work ethic and easy-going demeanor because he takes direction well and is “professional, polite, prepared, and very fun on set.” The AD for his latest feature film said:  “Sawyer completely understands the job and his contribution to how films are put together. Plus he clearly loves the work, and is self-motivated to be great at it.”

Sawyer can be seen in Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries, playing a younger version of Paul Wesley’s character Stefan. In late 2014, Sawyer wrapped filming for The Last Possession, a supernatural feature film which follows a family who has moved into the late grandfather's house. Sawyer’s lead character, Jack Peroni, knows "there's no such thing as monsters," but begins to question, worry and experience extraordinary things as the events of the thriller unfold. The film also stars Tom Proctor (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nashville) and Patricia Rae (The Big Wedding).

Sawyer's other film credits include the apocalyptic action feature Daylight's End, with Lance Henriksen (Alien) and Hakeem Kae-Kazeem (24, Black Sails), About Mom and Dad, which premiered at the 2014 Dallas International Film Festival, and Red on Yella, Kill a Fella. He recently portrayed the title character in Hermit, a dramatic short film about the struggles faced by a homeless boy. He plays a satirical role in the short film Slow Wave, which recently screened at the TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood at the Hollyshorts Film Festival. Other shorts include Night Terrors, Inside Out, and Rough Waters.

Sawyer made his national television debut in 2014 as Abner Barlow, son of Emmy-nominated Lauren Ambrose’s character in Deliverance Creek, Nicholas Sparks' first made-for-television movie. He also appeared in an episode of Parent Compass, a faith-based pilot, and was part of the ensemble cast for Who Runs This Show?,  an independent sketch comedy for kids and teens co-starring with Lizzy Greene (Ricky, Nicky, Dicky and Dawn). 

Sawyer is 11 years old and began film acting at age 8, quickly gaining a strong reputation and credits to match. He first discovered his passion for performing on stage, singing and dancing in musical theatre roles. At age 7, Sawyer gave an award-winning performance as Gavroche in "Les Miserables," and went on to deliver compelling portrayals of Young Tarzan in "Tarzan," Ugly, the lead role in "Honk," Tiny Tim in "Scrooge" and many others.

Sawyer also sings and plays guitar at local venues in his Texas hometown. When he's not performing, Sawyer's an avid reader and a video game master.
