Isaiah Russell-Bailey Was Born In 2006

Isaiah Russell-Bailey was born on December 9, 2006, in Los Angeles, California, United States. His birth sign is Sagittarius and he belongs to the African American ethnic group. The 15 year-old model and actor is an American citizen by birth.

Isaiah Russell-Bailey may very well be the only child of his mother, actress Brittany Russell-Perry, although several publications have pointed out that the Family Reunion star has a sister who so far, is unknown to the public and the media. The actor has a clear affinity for music and one needs to look no further than his father, Howard Earl Bailey Jr., aka Chingy, to understand where that passion comes from.

Through his father’s marriage to model and actress Adrienne Anderson-Bailey, Isaiah Russell-Bailey is an older brother to two half-brothers, Mykael and Azael Bailey. Not much is known about the actor’s half-siblings and there is also no way to determine the young actor’s position amongst his father’s children given that we don’t know much about the sister in question.

Isaiah Bailey had an eventful childhood in the City of Angels but barring the knowledge that he took some acting classes, there is not much information on the details of his formal education to this point. We can assume, however, that having grown up under his mother, Brittany Russell-Perry, the young actor must have been influenced to pursue acting by the 13 Reasons Why actress.

Isaiah Russell-Bailey Made His Acting Debut At The Age Of 12

As previously stated and as Bailey himself has confirmed, he got to see firsthand what it meant to be a high-level performer in the American movie industry by watching his mother ply that trade to perfection. It didn’t take long for him to decide that he wanted to get involved in the business.

To that end, the young actor made his on-screen debut at the age of 12 when he appeared as a Young Kevon Winters in a 2018 episode of the action drama series Criminal Minds (2005-2020). Having kicked off his acting career, Bailey went on to appear in 2 episodes of Giants (2017-2018), and singular episodes of S.W.A.T (2017-) and Raven’s Home (2017-), before 2018 was over.

The same year, a young Isaiah Russell-Bailey, who already has more than ten acting credits to his name, made his feature-length film bow as Justin in the 2018 comedy Throwback Holiday.

He has gone on to appear in several other movies and TV series including A Family Reunion Christmas (2019), Super Wings (2021), and We Can Be Heroes (2020), a superhero movie he had the distinct privilege of starring on with his mother Brittany Russell-Perry.

Isaiah Russell-Bailey Burst Onto The Scene With His Performance In Family Reunion

After bearing witness to the reviews the original movie, A Family Reunion Christmas, received, Netflix decided to expand the film into a 3-season series with most of the original movie cast, including Bailey, who played the role of Shaka McKellan, returning to reprise their roles.

While the actor would go on to take on the added responsibility of playing the role of Nicholas’ brother in the series, his role as Shaka McKellan was instrumental in endearing him to the hearts of viewers and fans of the show who were gutted when he didn’t show up for the 3rd season.

Suffice it to say that the We Can Be Heroes star burst onto the scene with his exhilarating performance as the young son of the McKellans.

The Exact Age of His Character On Family Reunion Is Unknown

As previously hinted at, Bailey’s character on Family Reunion was one of two sons born to the McKellans of the show. He was portrayed as a mischievous boy whose good intentions always shine through his misdemeanors.

The 15-year-old actor’s character, Shaka McKellan, is the oldest of two sons born to his parents Cocoa McKellan (portrayed by Tia Mowry-Hardrict) and Moz McKellans (played by Anthony Alabi) and the second of three children born to the couple who moved to Georgia to be closer to extended family.

The actor behind the character Shaka was 13 years old at the time of his first appearance on the show in 2019 but fans and viewers are yet to be enlightened about the age of his character in the series. Isaiah Russell-Bailey’s performances in the series have left an indelible mark in the hearts and minds of the fans of the show.

Isaiah Russell-Bailey Is Active On Social Media

The Throwback Holiday actor is quite active on a number of social media platforms, including Instagram where he operates under the handle @isaiahrussellbailey. He has managed to attract more than 300k followers to his page with his lifestyle, fashion, career, and movie-related posts.

A thorough search revealed that he is not on the bird app (Twitter), but he has an official page on Facebook where he has attracted more than 4k followers.

Isaiah Russell-Bailey Is Single

Isaiah Russell-Bailey is still very much unattached romantically. There is nothing about him that suggests that it is an aspect of his life he is seeking to remedy at the moment because the young actor seems primarily focused on squeezing out the juices of what is turning out nicely into a promising career in Hollywood.
