Check out our interview with actor Jaylin Fletcher who can be seen in the role of ‘Miles’ in TNT’s dystopian thriller series “Snowpiercer.”
The show follows the passengers of the Snowpiercer, a train that makes its way around the world carrying 3,000 of the last remaining humans after earth freezes over. ‘Miles,’ a young boy in the tail end of the train, uses his chance at an apprenticeship to gather information from the front to relay to his father, ‘Layton’, played by Daveed Diggs. Jaylin can also be seen in the upcoming Netflix thriller series “Clickbait,” starring as ‘Kai Brewer.’ This series follows multiple peoples’ points of view as they provide clues to the suspect of a gruesome crime fueled by social media. ‘Kai Brewer’ is one of the children whose family is affected by this crime. A stubborn but energetic young man, ‘Kai’ does all he can to help find the perpetrator.
Even at his young age, Jaylin Fletcher is no stranger to the entertainment industry. Fans may recognize him from his co-starring role in Disney’s “Coop and Cami Ask the World,” or Nickelodeon’s “Let’s Hear It for the Laurie Berkner Band.”

How did you get started acting?
My oldest sister started acting when she was a baby, and my mom kind of slowly pulled all five of us kids into the business.
What is the best and worst part of being an actor?
The best part of being an actor is being able to meet new people and the worst part is having to leave set at the end of the day! And to have my own brand, “FLETCH5,” because people pay attention more when you’re already a brand which helps you grow faster!
