“With over 2.8 million subscribers on his personal YouTube channel, 19-year-old Kian Lawley [20] established himself as a main entree in the otherwise buffet-ish YouTube video space. Teaming up with high-ranking Internet personalities (including Jc Caylen and Ricky Dillon) for Our2ndLife, this channel generated over 3 million subscribers before turning off in early 2015. And now Lawley’s warming up for his big screen debut. In The Chosen (2015)—an on-demand “horror-d’oeuvre,” he and his sister sacrifice six family members (delicious, right?) in order to save their younger cousin. Then in the black comedy Shovel Buddies, Lawley joins Bella Thorne and Alex Neustaedter in a sardonic quest to complete a “shovel list” of activities left behind by their deceased friend. When asked, the transitioning YouTube star said he looks forward to creating content for screens big and small. But please, while visiting CALIFUK, try not to watch Lawley on both screens at the same time. Those phone lights, they’re so bright.”
