If you aren't familiar with Callan McAuliffe, 16, that should change soon. He's earning raves for his role in I Am Number Four with Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron.

Who is the talented young Australian? In an interview with Movie Fanatic, he admits he kind of just fell into acting recently, which he isn't taking for granted. 

"I happened to be at the right place at the right time, went to the right audition thanks to my manager and it just sort of worked out," McAuliffe said.

"So I'm going to ride the bus until the wheels fall off."

Callan's accent is so good, you wouldn't know he hails from Down Under.

"It doesn't seem too difficult for Australian or British people to do American accents," he says. "[Maybe] that's because you pronounce things the way they're spelled and we don't, so it's kind of like going up a step in intelligence to do an American accent."

He calls his role in I Am Number Four a dream: "I've always wanted to do an action film, I've always wanted to shoot something and my dreams came true."
