Noah Ringer Wins 3rd Annual TheSky.com “Coming of Age” Best Actor

Noah Ringer, who played Aang in The Last Airbender, was nominated for, and won, the 3rd Annual TheSkyKid.com “Coming of Age” Best Actor movie award for his role. The Last Airbender was Ringer’s very first acting experience as he hasn’t had any prior, however he returned to the screen in 2011 as Emmett in Cowboys & Aliens. In 2008, Ringer’s taekwondo instructor, Eric Pechacek, received an email that invited any interested students to audition for the role of Aang for the film. He had been the one to introduce Ringer to the TV show version of The Last Airbender after watching it himself and noticing the resemblance of appearance and personality of Noah and Aang; Fellow students even called Noah ‘Avatar’ because of his shaved head, a similarity to Aang. Thus, his taekwondo master encouraged him to audition for the role that Noah eventually won and went on to win an Best Actor award for.

For his audition, Noah taped a video of himself dressed in Aang attire (Which was a Halloween costume of the character he had wore the year before), recited a few lines, and performed an XMA Jahng Bong routine before sending in the tape. A month later, he was called to meet with the movie’s director, M. Night Shyamalan. The a month after that, he officially received the part of Aang. Noah’s background in martial arts helped him excel at portraying Aang, especially since he only had a month to prepare for filming. For training, he practiced at the Young Actors Studio in Dallas, Texas with Linda Seto who he did intense study with. During filming, he also trained in various types of martial arts, and he still continues to attend those studio classes even though training for the movie has long since ended.

His role as Emmett for Cowboys & Aliens was his last film in 2012, but Noah posted on his real FaceBook page back in September of 2013 that he was currently working on a new project. There is no word on what that project exactly is yet. Noah was also nominated for two other awards based on his role of Aang in The Last Airbender, The Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film and A Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Screen Couple, which the entire case of The Last Airbender was nominated for. Noah reprises his role of Aang in the video game version of the movie.

Noah Ringer to star in “The Peppercorn Chronicles” in 2014

Noah Ringer is adding another impressive entry to his resume by agreeing to star in the upcoming film “The Peppercorn Chronicles.”

The movie is based loosely on a short film called “Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room,” which won best short film at the 2011 HollyShorts Film Festival. Filmmaker Mike Le Han also wrote the screenplay with his wife, Helen. The British couple is partnering with the production company Black Lake.

Ringer is co-starring with Jodelle Ferland and Michael Eklund. Ferland is best known for her supporting turn in the film “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” while Eklund has appeared in the movie “The Call” with Halle Berry and Abagail Breslin.

“The Peppercorn Chronicles” will be Ringer’s third high-profile film in his young career, following 2010’s “The Last Airbender” and 2011’s “Cowboys & Aliens.” Ringer received the “Coming of Age” Best Actor award from TheSkyKid.com for his work in director M. Night Shyamalan’s “Airbender.”

Like Ringer’s previous two films, “The Peppercorn Chronicles” is broad in scope, as filmmakers are planning a trilogy of films. The movies revolve a teen girl’s adventures at fictional Black Lake. The girl meets the son of a local baker, and the two discover the dark secrets that the area holds, eventually uncovering the truth about the girl’s presence in the town. The story has been compared favorably to “Twilight” and “Harry Potter,” further fueling talk of a potential franchise.

The film is shooting in both the United States and Hungary beginning in early 2014. The release date for the movie has yet to be announced.

Ringer first leaked word of his involvement in the project through social media in September 2013, though he did not mention “The Peppercorn Chronicles” specifically. The movie is in line with his previous two roles, as all three incorporate elements of fantasy and science fiction.

In “The Last Airbender,” Ringer played the character of Aang, which marked his debut in feature films. In addition to award from TheSkyKid.com, Ringer also received a nomination for Best Performance By a Leading Young Actor at the Young Artists Awards. Ringer parlayed that success into the role of Emmett Taggart in “Cowboys & Aliens,” a movie that also starred Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.
