Child actor Cruz Abelita, an Acworth resident and student at Cornerstone Prep, is heading into the fall season with multiple film and television projects currently showing and upcoming.
Abelita plays Danny in “Words on Bathroom Walls,” which is in theaters now. The film is receiving strong reviews from critics and viewers alike. He also plays Justin in the latest installation of “Step Up: High Water.” Based on the Step Up franchise, the series tells the story of the students and teachers at High Water Performing Arts School in Atlanta. Season three of the Starz Network series will begin filming soon. In the series, Abelita is joined by hip-hop sensation Ne-Yo, Ashley Greene from the Twilight franchise and, in previous seasons, the late Naya Rivera.
The Acworth native wraps up the year starring in Dolly Parton’s “Christmas on the Square,” which will be on Netflix this holiday season.
