IMU Exclusive: Meet 13-Year-Old Acadamy Award Winner Ta’j & His Brother Que
Atlantic City, New Jersey: Juneteenth weekend in AC was a movie all around, we saw EBC Basketball legends Future, Half-Man Half-Amazing play alongside college kids and savvy vets. Main Event was even on hand as well as the legendary Al ‘B’ Cash who emceed the basketball game.
We laughed out loud at the comedy club one night with Talent, jammed out with the iconic Sugar Hill Gang the next, and we got to view some really special films at the BE Film Festival.
Philly native Ta’j Blain got into acting at a very young age, his mother saw his full potential and put her own career on hold. Today I know she knows she made the right choice as her son became a teenage award winner receiving ‘best performance’ in a short film. ‘Sunnyside’, is the name of the film it’s not out yet but when it drops we will be sure to let ya’ll know. We here at IMU had the pleasure of chopping it up with the young actor, I should say actors, Taj’s brother Que was right by his side. Que also starred in a short film “Death Saved My Life.” A tragic story of a kid who gets bullied at school and feels neglected by his family, a harmful combination to say the least. A story I can relate to as I had to switch schools the bullying was so bad by 4th grade. The Anthony Reed Jr. directed film was produced by La’Cinda Trotter (pictured above with Main Event) and all of the hard work paid off as “Death Saved My Life” won film of the year in New Jersey.
Congratulations from all of us here at IMU Media, we are looking forward to seeing where your career is going to take the three of you. Please get to know Ta’j and Que a bit better below in our exclusive interview with the young actors and check out the gallery below. Trust me when I tell you Ta’j drops some gems!
