After his breakout role in 2015's Room, 11-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay has taken on another challenging part that is bound to tug at our heartstrings. His new film Wonder (in theatres November 17) features Tremblay as Auggie Pullman, a young boy living with a facial deformity who is starting out at a new school.

During his press tour for the film, we invited Tremblay to our CBC Arts studio to sit down for a cultural speedround with our CBC Arts: Exhibitionists host Amanda Parris. And we found out what Jacob is into right now — from music, movies and books to his funniest costar in Wonder (Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts play his parents). And Jacob also revealed his unique secret talent...

If this video makes you want to see more of Mr. Tremblay, he's already wrapped production on his next two films — The Predator and Xavier Dolan's first English-language feature, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. We can't wait to see what Vancouver's very own does next.
