Especially for the kids at BotCon, child actor Colton Dearing will be appearing on Saturday the 24th and signing autographs. Colton has been in three “Transformers” commercials and will be in the upcoming G.I. Joe Sigma Six commercial as well. As a younger kid, he had quite a collection of Transformers and became a whiz at their transformation. He used to time himself! He says it’s really hard doing it fast for the camera in commercials but it’s cool seeing yourself on T.V. on Saturday morning cartoons. Colton is a native of Burleson, Texas. He has been with the Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas doing commercials, modeling and movies for about four years. Last August, he got to spend a week in Monterey, Mexico shooting the movie, “Veritas, Prince of Truth”. It should be out this spring. Colton hopes to keep working in the business. He spent some time in L.A. and would like to be in another movie. In the meantime, he’ll keep transforming his robots!
