A 12-year-old boy who went viral after his mother Yarraka Bayles shared a clip of how being bullied impacted him is set to star in a movie alongside Chris Hemsworth.
Indigenous pre-teen Quaden Bayles is set to star in the latest Mad Max movie called Furiosa.
He took to Instagram on Monday to reveal his role in the movie, alongside Chris Hemsworth, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Anya Taylor-Joy.
Fellow Aussie, Angus Sampson, is also set to appear in the highly anticipated blockbuster.
“Can’t wait to watch on the big screen next year,” he captioned the image, before tagging his co-stars.

Quaden, who was bullied due to his dwarfism, was quickly championed and congratulated by his following after he revealed his role.
“Congrats young sir, God gave you a 1/1000000 opportunity. I hope this can be the start of your career,” one said.
“Don’t listen to all the noise. Truly happy people don’t rain on anyone’s parade.”
Another said he absolutely “rocked” his performance in the film, which is set to be released in 2024.
One added: “Congrats Quaden. You are such a wonderful young man. Can’t wait to see this myself.”
“Quaden the actor. Going Hollywood! I’ll be the first in theatres for it,” another said.
Others attempted to tear the boy down, claiming they were bullied but didn’t get to appear in a film out of it.
Quaden captured the world’s hearts in 2020 after a video of him sobbing in his mother’s, Yarraka Bayles, car went viral.
In the viral video, he told his mother: “Give me a knife – I want to kill myself.”
However, since then, young Quaden has not only gone on to become an anti-bullying advocate with his campaigning resulting in positive changes, he has also now found fame as an influencer, hanging out with the likes of boxing champion Billy Dib and singer sensation Kid Laroi.
