Troye Sivan, the charmingly glib and perfectly coiffed Aussie teen, is taking the music world by storm. The 19 year old was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. His family moved to Australia when he was two years old due to rising crime in the country. In February 2008, Sivan was cast as young James Howlett in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Sivan got the part after videos of his telethon performance were posted on Youtube, catching the attention of a Hollywood agent.
In September 2012, Sivan began creating video blogs on YouTube, after strictly singing on the site since 2007. Since then he has gained a wide audience and has kept his fan base up to date with his current projects, life, and musings. His YouTube channel is the second most subscribed channel in Australia.
