Who is Taj Cross?
Taj Cross was born in Venice, California USA, on 11 February 2004 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius, and he holds American nationality. He’s an actor, so far with just two credits to his name, while he’s also a YouTuber and social media star.
Early life and education
Taj was raised in Venice alongside his older sister Camille Cross, by their father Jake Cross and their mother Christena Karras; not a lot is known about Taj’s family, as he respects their privacy, but it’s believed that his father’s the owner of his own small business, and that his mother’s a high school teacher, while Taj’s sister Camille is currently attending college.
Taj became interested in acting when he was 10 years old, mostly because he watched movies and TV series with his family nearly every day.
He then became a member of his elementary school’s drama club, and went on to appear in various plays performed there. It was in 2018 that he enrolled at local high school, and continued to appear in plays there; after having been noticed by a scout, Taj began appearing in plays performed at a local theatre.
He has matriculated just recently in 2022, and it’s believed that Taj won’t be enrolling at college, but will instead pursue a career as an actor.
Career as an actor
Taj gained recognition in 2021, when cast to play Gabe in five episodes of the popular comedy series “Young Rock”, created by Jeff Chiang and Nahnatchka Khan, and which stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Joseph Lee Anderson and Stacey Leilua.
It follows the early life of the famous American actor Dwayne Johnson, and the series has won two of the 10 awards for which it has been nominated.
Between 2019 and 2022, he played the supporting character Sam in the comedy series “PEN15”, created by Anna Konkle, Maya Erskine and Sam Zvibleman, and which starred Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle and Melora Walters. It follows the lives of two 13 years old girls, and the series won three of the 43 awards for which it was nominated, including four Primetime Emmy nominations.
Taj appeared in the 2021 episode “Taj Cross” of the talk-show “In Creative Company”, which has been running since 2020, and today numbers close to 400 episodes. It features the hosts Mara Webster and Jenelle Riley interviewing popular actors and musicians.
Taj launched his self-titled YouTube channel on 8 February 2018, wanting to share the videos which feature him during his everyday life with his fans, however, he abandoned the channel after having uploaded only three videos onto it. Nevertheless, there are still eight people subscribed to it, while it numbers over 300 views of these three videos combined.
Taj’s most popular video “Media Montage” has been watched over 200 times since 11 December 2019, and features him playing basketball with his friends; his debut video “Yes Sir b03” features him playing the video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops III”, while his only other video – “Stop Motion” – is his own short stop motion film.
Taj is highly active on Instagram and is today followed by more than 30,000 people, while he has uploaded nearly 100 pictures onto the network, the vast majority having been taken during his everyday life, and thus revealing a lot about him – he’s a huge fan of old-timer cars, and that he has attended various events related to them. He’s shown to his fans that he’s physically quite active, as he plays various sports with his friends, including basketball and soccer, while he also has a couple of training sessions at the gym every week.
He has a Twitter account, as well, launched in June 2020, but Taj isn’t that active on it, as he’s tweeted only four times.
His Facebook page is today followed by close to 100 people, but his most recent update was on 13 August 2019.
While he doesn’t have his own TikTok account, there are a couple of Taj’s fan accounts found on the network – the most popular amongst these is today followed by close to 2,000 people.
Love life and girlfriend
Taj prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself, and hasn’t mentioned any girls, or perhaps boys whom he has been with. This is the main reason behind various rumors circulating the internet today, most of which are about his past and present affairs, as well as his sexual orientation.
Some of his fans believe him to be gay, claiming that this might be the reason behind him not speaking of the girls who he’s been with; a fan has even claimed to have seen him spending time with his boyfriend in public, but no evidence has been provided to support this, nor has Taj addressed the matter.
There are also those who believe that he’s today in a long-term relationship with his high school sweetheart, and that he simply prefers to keep her away from the media’s attention, because of how his popularity could affect their relationship, and vice-versa; this is also unconfirmed.
As of May 2022, Taj seems to be unattached, hasn’t married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Taj has fallen in love with travelling, and his acting career has already taken him to several US states; it seems that he’s yet to travel overseas, as his dream travel destination is Kyoto, Japan.
He’s a huge lover of animals, and has featured his dog in a couple of his Instagram pictures.
Taj enjoys spending his spare time in nature, whether it’s in a park close to his home, near bodies of water or high up in the mountains; he’s visited a couple of US national parks with his family.
