In 2004, Tequan appeared as American Legend Ray Charles Jr. (at age 9-10 years old) in the award-winning biographical feature film “Ray”. In addition, Tequan has appeared numerous television programs including: “Cold Case”, “ER”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “MADtv.” He also has been featured in various national print ads and commercials.
Tequan will make a guest panel appearance along with the entire cast of “Everybody Hates Chris” at the William S. Paley Television Festival at the Directors Guild of America Theatre Complex on March 2, 2006 at 7pm.
Despite the fabulous new zip code and superstar aspirations, Tequan (age 13) insists that the Hollywood scene hasn't changed his outlook on things. Sure, he's delighted with the perks, like free clothes and gifts. And he loves to make appearances with Chris Rock and the whole cast. Yet unlike many of his fabulously famous peers, he's not obsessed with his looks or stardom; he insists that he thoroughly enjoys acting and will continue his career long term.
“I enjoy working with Tyler Williams (Chris’character) and we talk all the time outside of work and on the set. We really do act like brothers even when we are off the set. It has been great to work with Chris Rock and to follow in the footsteps of a great actor,” Tequan comments.
