Kelton Elliot Actor
Kelton Elliot loves playing the guitar, is passionate to stay fit, and video editing. “Acting is my passion and choosing this career is the only choice I’ve ever made that has been indisputably correct,” he said in a post.

In August 2020, he starred as the love interest of a cheating girlfriend in The Kid Laroi’s single ‘Selfish’.
On his website, Elliot shared his feelings about his approach to acting and said, “When picking a monologue, I’m seeking something I can relate to; I’m looking for a bit of truth in the writing that speaks to me so that when I read to a camera, it feels honest and easy to suspend my own disbelief without a scene partner to help… I’ve been taught to find at least one moment of joy somewhere in the text. You can always find a ‘happy bit’ — even if it’s a nostalgic moment in an otherwise depressing eulogy or admittance of love in a break-up.”
