Actor Rahart Adams talks about the best advice he's been given, his favorite new emoji, and if he's a 'bad boy' in real life


19-year-old Rahart Adams hails from Melbourne, Australia, and is becoming quite the social star (in addition to his major acting chops). ​

This Aussie heartthrob has won over the hearts of millions with his roles on "Every Witch Way," "Nowhere Boys," and "Liar, Liar, Vampire," and will soon win you over, too.

After recently wrapping up the final season of his Nickelodeon hit show "Every Witch Way," this young talent is breaking into a variety of new projects that he's excited to share with us.

We got the inside scoop on how Adams got his start as an actor, how he's enjoying his free time in the states, and, of course, what he loves most about his fans. Check it out!

Talk to me about how you got your start as an actor! Where did it all begin?

I've always had a thing for creativity; whether it was acting, singing or dancing — being creative in the sense of performing is where I've always envisioned myself being. From a young age, I started playing piano, and then I started dancing. Then I had this accident where I hurt my back, so I couldn't dance very well anymore, so then I started acting. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, really.

So you're obviously from Australia, what would you say is the biggest difference between Australia and the US?

The more and more I travel to and between the states and Australia, the more and more the differences become blurry. But, I'd say the biggest difference is the terms. Like, we call Sprite, lemonade. So every time I order a lemonade here in the United States, I get this lemon-y drink. And we call fries, chips. So whenever I order chips here, I get this bag of "crisps."

What about in terms of people?

My experiences in the states have been great, everyone has been really nice to me...Even in New York! I was worried, you know, people always said that in New York, everyone is really fast paced and has something to do, but my experience has been completely different. I'm obviously new in New York, but people have been so nice and helping me out...I've just been a tourist really. I've been walking around, looking at things and taking lots of pictures.

So in "Every Witch Way," your character Jax is kind of a "bad boy." How would your friends describe you? Are you more of a bad boy or are you the good guy?

In real life, I'm just goofy. I relate more to the class clown in the group, always having a little joke, rather than the bad boy. I'm not much of a trouble maker, honestly...(laughs). I'm actually a real life wizard, too.

You definitely have a huge presence on social media. Is there one platform that you enjoy posting on the most?

Instagram, definitely. I'm still trying to get the hang of Twitter, I've had it for a little while, but I still can't quite get a handle on it. I try to do the Twitter thing, but for me, it's all confusing. Instagram is so simple. It's a photo and a caption.

Speaking of social media, which is your new favorite emoji?

Okay, let me look at my phone right now and I'll show you what my most recent emojis are...(scrolls). I've got the nerd face, the Halloween pumpkin, the American flag, and the Statue of Liberty head...those are my most recent.

So these aren't the ones I use all the time, but they're the ones I've used most recently. The newest one that I really like is the guy rubbing his chin, pondering quizzically. I think that one is really funny.

What is your absolute favorite thing about your fans?

The fact that they're so dedicated. It's a really nice really knowing that people really support what you do, and people like what you do. As an actor, you really think, are the things that I'm doing in my industry actually making a difference, are people paying attention? The things that I love about my fans is that they do pay attention, they follow along with everything. I love that.

What is one piece of advice you would give to an aspiring entertainer trying to make it big?

Persevere and persist. Don't give up. That's what my dad taught me. In this industry, you could go for a hundred auditions, and you really just need that one to get you somewhere. All you need is the one to start you off. And then one leads to another, and another, and another.

Any exciting new projects you're working on right now?

I'm working on an independent movie back at home (in Australia) called "Emo, the Musical." It's a satirical comedy about high school. It's directed by Neil Triffett, who's doing such amazing stuff. It was originally a short film that won all of these awards, so now they're adapting it into a feature film. I play one of the lead roles, Bradley, and he's like "King Emo," basically.

The whole thing is so real, like the comedy is not played, it more so just happens, so it's going to be a good one for that reason. It's really going to be great!
