Brandon spent most of his youth days honing his skating skills, but one day his skating manager asked what he wanted to do in the future?
He recalls that moment;
"He (skating manager) asked me, 'What do you really want to do? What's your dream? Your body can't skate forever, "I sat there and thought about it, and I told him, 'I've always wanted to act, but I never knew really knew how to get into it, so I haven't ever tried.' And he said, 'You've got one life to live, why aren't you acting?' and I was like, 'You're right!'"
Not long after that, he moved to Los Angeles and rented a room from a friend and sincerely started to attend acting classes.
Speaking about his initial acting experience, the "How Far" actor said;
"Once I started getting into some classes and really started digging deep into characters, storylines, and really diving into scripts, I really fell in love with the entire art form, and it's my bread and butter now. It's what I want to do for a long, long time."
It is a good thing that his decision to choose acting went well and looking at his career; he did not do too bad at it. Even though he is an actor, his love for jam skating and dancing remains the same as he frequently exhibits his skills on screen and social media.
