Lucas Cruikshank is an ordinary teen from Nebraska. His parents have the money, he drives hand-me-down vehicles and he has to mow the lawn. He wants to be an actor and took the character he created Fred Figglehorn to youtube and became an internet sensation. He had a guest spot on iCarly and on Hannah Montana and his acting dreams are starting to take off. Nickelodeon loved the character so much, they produced Fred The Movie. Lucas may even get his own show for for the cable kids network.
Where did the idea of Fred come from? Cruikshank said his younger brothers gave him the initial spark for his character:
He’s Inspired by His Family
Cruikshank, who is the fourth of eight kids, says his main influences for the Fred Figglehorn character are his little brothers. “They were crazy little kids, and I exaggerated what they did and made Fred like them,” he tells PEOPLE. “I get a lot of ideas living in a huge family.”
If you missed Fred The Movie (with John Cena, Pixie Lott and Jennette McCurdy) on Nickelodeon last night, it airs again, Sunday night September 19th at 8pm EST.
