While visiting the area in and around Los Angeles this past week, we were thrilled to meet up with two outstanding young actors who are also both amazing dancers and performers. I invited them to meet me at the Hard Rock Café about halfway down the CityWalk to Universal Studios. I of course was celebrating the day at Universal with the prolific young vocalist/performer Sam Santiago and his family during our stay with them in Irvine.
The restaurant was empty at the time of our arrival which actually surprised me and the waiter quickly provided a table for our party of Ten. As we all found a seat everyone began to arrive. I walked outside to meet Christian Traeumer and his mother Tomasine who I already knew were delightful people, but meeting them both in person was a true joy! I immediately found Christian to be an effervescent, fun loving, humorous, and bubbly young man demonstrating the kind of personality that lights up a room as soon as he walks in. Since they were the first to arrive I had the opportunity to visit one on one with the both of them before the arrival of our second guests.
We were just beginning to order when Jay Jay Warren and his mother Beverly walked in. Jay Jay immediacy approached me with an outstretched hand. His warm personality drew everyone to him like a magnet as he walked around the table making self introductions. I found Jay Jay to be full of life and always smiling. In fact, the entire time the joy he expressed on his face made me realize that this young man was on the rise for more reasons than one! His mother Beverly was also amazingly charming so it’s easy to see the apple does not fall far from the tree here.
“Acting is Coolcause you get to be someone else every time”.
( Christian Traeumer )
Eleven year old actor Christian Traeumer of Los Angeles may not be 6 feet tall yet, but this young talented actor has a tall litany of credits already stacked up in his young career.
My good friend Uwe Haase, Talent Agent from proXauf – DIE AGENTURU, from Berlin, Germany introduced me to Christian and his wonderful mother only last week. I was so impressed with young Christian’s accomplishments and his magnetic personality that I just had to share his story with the world!
You could say that Christian was born to be an actor. He began preparing for his speaking roles by starting to speak at just 9 months and reading by the young age of 3.

By 17 months Christian was already on stage at a Hawaiian Tropic baby pageant where he won the title and was soon approached by Generations Model and Talent in San Francisco. Christians modeling career began right then and there, he auditioned and landed his first modeling job in a Mervyns store flyer. Macys, Tom Tailor, Phonak, Small World Toys and many more.
At the age of 29 months Christian participated in a Hollywood Star competition where he went as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. (SEE PICTURE OF CHRISTIAN TRAVOLTA) Christian surpassed 38 boys and amazed the crowd with what he had learned to show them on the stage. At this moment his mother knew he was going to be more than a model.
When Christian was Four ,he entered a talent contest and won his division singing “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias”, then after modeling in San Francisco for 2 years, he and his Mom moved from San Jose, to Los Angeles to pursue Christian’s career in acting.
