Booboo Stewart Bio/Parents
Many fans often wonder how Stewart came to the name Booboo. Well, Booboo is his nickname from his childhood, which has stood the test of time. “My real name is Nils and Booboo is a childhood nickname. It’s not two words or two capital B’s, it’s B-o-o-b-o-o,” the actor once explained.

At the age of 10 years, Stewart started his career as a model. Booboo is, like his father, a martial artist and started using his skills for film roles as a child. He appeared as a child warrior in Skeleton Man (2004). He also used his stunts in Zoom (2006) and Beowulf (2007).
As a martial artist, Booboo has won two world championships and was inducted into the Jr. Blackbelt Hall of Fame.

On the small screen, Stewart had guest roles in Big Time, Dante’s Cove (2004 – 2006) and Everybody Hates Chris (2006).

At the age of 12, he got a record deal with Walt Disney and toured with Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. He recorded the song “Let’s Go!”, which was used for the opening theme song of the Disney Channel Games 2008.
