Fin Argus is an American model, actor, singer-songwriter, and musician who rose to prominence after starring in the film ‘Clouds’ (2020) as Zach Sobiech.
Since childhood, he was inclined towards music and played numerous instruments. In an interview, he said,
I picked up the Spanish guitar in third grade…Then the piano. Then the French horn. Then the cello. Then the ukulele, mandolin, and banjo. Then the bass guitar.”
He did his schooling at Maine West High School, Chicago. He was an active member of Kidz Bop, a music franchise that organizes events featuring kids performing family-friendly versions of popular songs. At Kidz Bop, Argus extensively traveled to perform live sold-out concerts across the US & Canada.
Apart from music, Argus was also passionate about acting. His parents enrolled him in acting classes when he was in the first grade. In an interview, while talking about the onset of his journey as an actor, he said,
I started acting when I was really young, and just because I had a bunch of pent-up energy, I needed to do something…So my parents just threw me in an acting class, and I took to it immediately. I think I was in first grade.”
Later, he attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Thereafter, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
