Won the Young Artist Award for "Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries, or Special: Leading Young Actor" for his role in "Skyrunners".
His surname, "Pollari", is Finnish (his paternal grandfather was of Finnish descent).
His real life puberty was written into Skyrunners (2009) when principal photography halted in the summer of 2007 and resumed sometime the following year. His co-star Kelly Blatz called it "the coolest movie special effect ever.".
