Dancer Jaime Callica brings his talent to TV in the Nickelodeon movie “Ragz”
Jaime Callica brings his talent to television again, this time in the upcoming Nickelodeon TV musical “Ragz”. The feature is premiering this month.
Callica began his career as a dancer, his first break coming in 2010 in as a performer in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”. Since then, he has appeared in “Hellcats” and danced for artists such as Sean Paul, Shades of Soul and Vancouver’s very own Rosette. Callica's newest project, the upcoming MOW "Ragz", (airing later this month), is a coming-of-age tale about Kadee, a budding performer looking to enhance her musical career.
Callica took the leap from dancer to actor with roles in both film and television. First acting in the Vancouver-based series “Smallville”, Callica's most recent appearance was in an episode of “The Secret Circle,” which aired last month. Jaime's upcoming roles include an appearance in the buzzed about Superman movie “Man of Steel,” to be released in June 2013.
Callica cites his love of entertaining as evolving from a young age. Born in North York, Callica was raised in Markham, Ontario by parents of Trinidadian, Spanish and Chinese ancestry. At the age of three years old, Callica would imitate his idol Michael Jackson, before entering contests and being hired to impersonate Jackson at birthday parties and weddings. From there, his desire to perform and career in the entertainment industry was born. Callica's talent as both actor and dancer, has made him someone to watch out for in coming years.
