Birth Name: Tristan Lake Leabu
Birth Place: Los Angeles, California
Profession: Actor and Musician


Tristan Lake Leabu was born on August 19, 1999 in Los Angeles, California. Both his parents worked in the entertainment industry, so it seemed only natural that Tristan would be attracted to acting.

Leabu would often follow his mother on sets. When the call went out for the Man of Steel’s young son, Jason, in Superman Returns, he stepped up.

Leabu won the role of Jason White over 100,000 hopefuls. Although the movie opened to mixed reviews, Tristan had a wonderful experience and wanted more.

Both of his parents dropped out of the industry, but they supported his passion for acting and gave him a very grounded lifestyle at home.

He continued to book more roles in film and television, landing another film role in the movie The Sitter in 2007. Others followed, such as Least Among Saints, Hawaii Five-O, All American Christmas Carol, The Christmas Spirit, and Losing in Love.

In 2017, Tristan won the role of Reed Hellstrom on The Young and the Restless, and found his first taste of daytime refreshing, enjoying the discipline and quick pace.

When he isn’t acting, Leabu enjoys songwriting and playing multiple instruments. He is looking forward to getting his own place and driving.
