Guam - Another young aspiring actor is on his way to making it big in Hollywood. Governor Eddie Calvo just recently focused his weekly address on Chamorros and Guamanians working hard to leave their mark.

9-year-old Julius Duenas Cruz is well on his way to becoming a child star in the States having appeared in national television shows and commercials. He tells KUAM he hopes to join the likes of other local talent including Guam's own Pia Mia. "I'm pretty sure I get to be just like them because I'm from Guam I go to the States and I get to act," he said.

Echoing the statements made in the governor's address, even at his young age Julius recognizes the advantage of being a Guamanian. "I get to have my own island not where you're from the states. You're unique when you're from like islands," he added.

Julius is the son of Eric and Randi Cruz and resides both in Texas and Los Angeles. Julius has appeared in TNT's series 'Dallas', and is featured on Disney Jr.'s 'choo Choo Soul' segment. He has appeared in TV commercials for Hasbro Toys, Huggies Diapers, Leap Frog and Whole Foods, along with being cast in the movie 'El Chupacabra'.

Despite his growing fame, Julius remains humble and thankful for all the support he has received. "My family for doing the carwash, my mom and dad for bringing me places and everybody that has done stuff for us, especially God," Julius said.

Although details about Julius' upcoming projects could not be revealed due to confidentiality agreements, his parents confirm that he will be making more appearances on the big screen in the near future.
