Mr. Lelliott began his film career at the age of 12 when he was hired to model the title character in Francis Coppola's film Jack for Robin Williams, who plays a 10 year old with an unusual aging disorder. He worked closely with Williams as he developed the character and performed all of the scenes for camera rehearsals, so the actor could observe a child's interpretation of the role. Mr. Lelliott also played a supporting role in the film. Over the next several years, he amassed dozens of film and television credits, including recurring and regular roles on several Spelling Television series. Lelliott holds a bachelor’s degree in film production from Loyola Marymount University and an M.F.A. in acting from California State University, Fullerton.
