Chinguun Sergelen is a very creative 12-year-old boy who loves to entertain people. He feels a strong connection to his Mongolian heritage and the Mongolian Zodiac animal sign of the monkey, which is known for being entertaining, funny, and clever.
Chinguun discovered his love of performing at the age of six at the Round Lake Area Park District Theatre, where he got a big kick out of playing the villain Jafar in Aladdin. He has since moved on to act in professional productions. He played the young Edward VI in The Last Wife, directed by Nick Bowling, at TimeLine Theatre and Wally Webb in Our Town, directed by James Fleming, at Redtwist Theatre. In 2018, he joined the youth ensemble at Laugh Out Loud Theater in Chicago where he studies and performs improv.
He has appeared in multiple commercials and short films. The short film iDad, in which he plays the son, won Best Picture & Best Artistic Interpretation at the 2017 Big Teeth 60 Second Film Fest. In 2017, he filmed his first pilot, Miskits.
Chinguun is always excited to improve his skills and has received training from private coaches Janet B. Milstein, Stef Tovar, Janet Ulrich Brooks, and Ryan Kitely. He received the Rising Star Scholarship in the Launch Showcase in 2016. He has taken workshops and classes at The Second City, Acting Studio Chicago, LA Kids Acting Camp, and Vagabond School of the Arts. He also studies horsehead fiddle with a private coach.
Chinguun is thrilled to be represented by Gray Talent and to have Cinda Snow of Snow Entertainment as his manager.
