    FG-BenDavies-170x200

    Ben Davies is a model, actor and athlete who shot his first national ad campaign before he was 2 years old! As an athlete, he was a Junior Olympics Decathlete, who went to college on an athletic scholarship. But injuries began to slow him down, his Olympic coach was fired, he broke his rib during a competition, and he was involved in a bicycle wreck that resulted in major surgery on his right arm. For the first time in Ben Davies life, he was weak. He cried out to God to show him the way, to allow him to do something “significant”. That’s when things turned around for Ben. That same week, Advantage Models & Talent got the call from Sherwood Pictures that Ben had a call back for a lead role in the movie Courageous. Since that film, Ben graduated, moved to Los Angeles, married and has been in 15 additional films. He’s now an actor, model and talent for Christ in the ultimate competition.

    Johnny Apple came to SHINE twice in 2012 and 2013 at the ages of 15 and 16. He wowed AMTC's judges both times. Perhaps this polish set the stage for the talented young South African to win South Africa’s Got Talent. He’s currently signed with Sony Music and has released his first single and album by the same name: Warrior. When asked about the new single, he says: “If it gives just one person the courage to be a warrior and stand up for what he or she believes in, I will have done what I set out to achieve.” Johnny also opened for the band, One Direction. With Twitter abuzz with affection for the young star, it appears Appelgrein’s career is starting to take off. Not quite ready to place all his eggs in one basket, he says: “It’s important to me that I finish school, because you never know what’s going to happen in this life. I want something to fall back on. Also, I want to be a good example to those who look up to me – and this is me doing the right thing.”

They followed her from the time she was 13 and signed her at age 17. JP has a space between her front teeth. What some might consider a liability has added to her appeal. JP shows that perserverance pays off! She’s modeled all over the world steadily for many years with too many designers, shows and magazine editorials and covers to list.

    Julian Silva’s talent is only exceeded by heart. Fresh from winning Overall Child Singer at the SHINE Winter 2013 Conference, Julian was cast in the role of Gavroche for the North American Tour of Les Misérables. When interviewed, he told a reporter that he prayed before every performance: “Jesus meet me at the mic.” Since then, Julian has done several national TV commercials and an upcoming film with the director of God’s Not Dead. Most recently, Julian was cast in the most coveted child theater role in the world: Young Simba in the Lion King on Broadway. The entire Silva family is very dear to the ministry of AMTC, and we must commend Dan and Maria Silva as model parents for a Christian child star.

    Charles Michael Davis is an actor, director, model and photographer from Dayton, Ohio. He was born to an African American father and Filipino mother. As an actor, he is best known for his starring role on The CW show, The Originals (Marcel), but he’s also had recurring roles on Grey’s Anatomy (Dr. Jason Myers), The Game (Kwan Kirkland) and Switched at Birth (Liam). Contrary to his role as Marcel, Charles Michel is an amazingly nice man, doing volunteer work for many charities.

    “It started in the spring of 2004 just two years after signing with my mother agency, Wings Model Management. I awoke one Saturday morning to receive a call from my agent. He offered me the opportunity to pursue my dreams at SHINE. Boy, am I glad I took him up on it. Long story short, we came, we saw, we conquered.

    I took that confidence with me and two months after SHINE I packed up and drove to LA. Another two months after that I booked my first television audition for That’s So Raven. After landing the role I became a member of the Screen Actors Guild and since then the ball continued to roll.

    Today my plate is so full with theatrical, commercial, print, voice over, hosting, and producing gigs that its become a constant reminder of how grateful for what I learned and the experience I gained at SHINE!”
