Fans of the 1980s show “Full House” were rewarded recently when Netflix announced that they were revamping the sitcom, titling the new version “Fuller House.” Eight-year old Denver native Elias Harger, represented by the Wilhelmina Denver talent agency, was tapped to portray Max Fuller on the show. A quick study, Elias is known on the set for his lighthearted approach and serious acting chops, despite his young age. The show’s first season is a follow-up to the hit sensation that ran from 1987 to 1995, long before Elias was even born. He studied for his role by watching old episodes, and made a fast friendship with one of the show’s original stars, Bob Saget. “Elias is incredibly talented and versatile,” says Brooke Fogg, President of the Colorado-based talent agency representing him. “He will go very far in the entertainment world.” To learn more about the agency and their range of services, visit http://profiles.wilhelminadenver.com/models/dept/1?gr=18.
Elias may take his role as Max Fuller very seriously, learning his lines faster than many of his more seasoned costars, but between takes he can be found hamming it up for the cast. He is an accomplished dancer and is well-versed in many other entertainment talents including singing and playing the piano. Returning stars from the original show have taken young Elias under their wings, helping him adapt to working on a big-budget television set. His talent is so large that the show’s writers have begun to adapt lines and scenes to reflect Elias’ own strengths, giving his Max Fuller character an extra measure of vibrancy and relatability.
