‘Everyone kept telling my mum that she should put me into acting classes because apparently I was a real character and wasn’t a shy kid,’ he said.

From that moment on, a love affair with the art began.

The John Curtin College of the Arts student relished playing different characters and pretending to be someone completely new.

A string of workshops, school productions and short films followed, but come January, locals will soon be able to spot him on the big screen with the release of Australian feature film Paper Planes, also starring Sam Worthington.

The film has fared well with critics and won the CinefestOZ $100,000 film prize.

Noah said he loved the film and was looking forward to its release, but would continue to have his sights firmly set on his career. He heads to the United States this month to network and take part in a number of acting workshops.

‘It’s the one thing I think I am decent at, and I feel this is what I’m meant to do for the rest of my life,’ he said.

‘It’s something I have been working towards for a long time. I found doing a feature film more challenging and I had longer filming schedules than any commercial I had done.

‘I’m hoping that by having done this feature film it will open more doors for me in the future because I really learnt a lot and will take that away with me.’
