Meet Pittsburgh-born child actor Kellan Tetlow, who is already making his mark on Hollywood

An 8-year-old boy who’s originally from Pittsburgh is landing some big roles in Hollywood. Kellan Tetlow is 8 years old and just finished filming the FX series “A Murder at the End of the World.” It’s a mystery thriller filmed in New York, Utah and Iceland.


“Filming ‘A Murder at the End of the World’ in Iceland was really great,” Kellan said, “because I got to ride a snowmobile to set, and I got to work with an Icelandic crew, and it was really snowy but beautiful at the same time, and I got to see the Northern Lights.”

You might remember seeing Kellan in the final season of “This is Us,” and he was also in a popular Korean sitcom.

What’s it like to be an elementary schooler working as an actor? While Kellan is filming for a show, he has a teacher who works with him a minimum of three hours a day. But it can fluctuate depending on the production schedule.

“Let’s say I have a big scene,” Kellan says. “So the day before I have a big scene, I have to do more school than I usually do, so the next day when I do my big scene, I don’t have to do any school.”

The Tetlows moved from Pittsburgh to New York and then L.A. to pursue acting. Kellan actually booked his first job thanks to his birth announcement, which his Mom sent to his older sibling’s agent.

You can see him in “A Murder at the End of the World” streaming on Hulu now.
