Twilight and Lone Ranger Actor Visits Native Youth

Posted:

An actor from big movies such as the Lone Ranger and the Twilight Series makes an impression in Bismarck.

Andrew Orozco has been touring the Dakotas, promoting his movies and hopefully inspiring the youth.

He says he actually learned to dance at a boys and girls club back in Arizona.

He was featured on America's Best Dance crew and showed off his moves to some young people visiting United Tribes Technical College from the Fort Berthold reservation.

Several of the members of the boys and girls club from Parshall and New Town took pictures with the actor and got autographs.

"He's from the Twilight wolf pack and a lot of people are fans of him, girls consider him hot..." says Rose Foote, Parshall.

"There's not really a lot of Native American actors that really get out there as much, but it's awesome that a Native American actor that comes around to our reservation is on Twilight, maybe that's why there's a lot of people that like him." says Asa Deane, Parshall.

He tells the young people that just four years ago he was living on a reservation without much to his name.

Andrew strives to be a mainstream Native actor who also inspires others to go for their dreams.

"I guess just to be an example to other inspiring native actors, why can't I be the next native Tom Cruise, or why can't I be the next big thing... My message to all the native youth is to never give up, sometimes your miracle is just right around the corner, and you never get to reach it if you just give up." says Andrew Orozco, Actor.

He has an adopted mother from a tribe in North Dakota.
