Cute Boy Actor: Chase Ellison

After watching ‘Mysterious Skin (2004)’ and posting about it, I was crazy in love with Chase Ellison! His eyes, lips and voice and so perfect.

So here are some more pictures and some video clips of him

From his Wikipedia: Ellison was born in Reno, Nevada, and lives with his parents and two siblings in San Diego. He began his acting career at the age of six, working in commercials and modeling for several print campaigns. He segued into television, landing a guest star role on Family Law, then on Boomtown, Malcolm in the Middle, 7th Heaven, Providence, The Division. He played a supporting role in George Bamber’s The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green, which then led to a major supporting role in Gregg Araki’s Mysterious Skin, a guest role in an episode of Six Feet Under, and a semi regular role as Noah Newman, the son of Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) on soap opera The Young and the Restless in 2005.

Been looking for this short film for a while now. Seems to be unavailable everywhere and I heard you have to pay $2 on itunes for this film, but I can’t find it. Hopefully someone can tell me how can I watch this because I really do want to watch it!

Here are some of my favorite scenes involving him in the film:

Wristcutters as Young Kostya

Fireflies in the Garden as Christopher Lawrence

And my most favorite scene of all, from End Of The Spear as Young Steve Saint

I cried when he said ‘I love you dad’…which were his last words to him

I’m sad, but happy at the same time that he’s all matured and grown up now and I wish him the best in his future endeavors!

  1. Wow, quite beautiful and poignant clips. I didn’t know anything about this actor but thanks to you do now. Really appreciate sharing him and especially with fathers’ day tomorrow – USA at least.

    • No problems!

      I genuinely think he deserves more love & attention despite the fact that he isn’t really an actor now.

      Also, I just found and uploaded Quake (2007) – The short film onto the channel, feel free to check it out!

      The film was quite touching but the ending felt like a huge cliffhanger

  2. Chad Allen, who portrays Chase’s dad in ‘End or the Spear’ was himself an adorable boy actor. He was on a show called ‘Our House’ in the 80’s. He’s one of my favorite boy actors. In 2001 he came out and was an advocate for same sex marriage. drinks

    • good I too had a loving interest in Chad! and it was great to see him in that Dad role, for me, it was the first time I’d seen him in anything since Dr. Quinn!
      Last I heard Chad started a Theater group in California! I think it was in San Francisco!

  3. I believe that clip from Wristcutters is the entirety of his appearance in that film. Another film to see is The Year of Getting to Know Us (2008), an average at best film, but Chase looks sensational in it!

  4. Ahh dear Chase, I fell in love with him too! Mysterious Skin was actually the first movie I saw that revolved around such a theme as that, and apparently the child actors’ roles were filmed in such a way that they didn’t know what the subject matter was. Araki is a great director and captured a very fragile element so well. Any ways yes, Chase is beautiful! I didn’t know he was in all of these other films…. will have to check them out.

    • Yes, I heard about the making of ‘Mysterious Skin’ too!

      I think he would say things like ‘Think about something that makes you happy like a video game’ or ‘Think about something that makes you scared’ etc to evoke specific emotions he wanted from the younger actors, which I thought was cool and I think the younger actors also did a great job!

      I found Chase through ‘Mysterious Skin’ too, and ever since then went to watch all the films /TV shows he was involved in laugh

      Definitely check out ‘Quake (2007)’ which I’ve uploaded to my Youtube if you have the time! It’s one of my favorite films of Chase, though I didn’t quite catch the story. But Chase looks so damn cute inside so I guess that’s enough for me heart

  5. Since you guys like Chase SO much! you might try giving Devon Gearhart a look! he was SUPER DUPER SEXY at 9, 10, &11 years old!
