Young Entertainment Mag: How did you first get involved in acting?
Christian Isaiah: When I lived in Virginia I entered a contest and after a few weeks of lessons the group was invited to LA to a convention. After a week of auditions I received 25 callbacks the most in my group. My mom was about to retire from the Navy, so when she retired we decided to move here to give acting a try.
