Career and Life

Terrell Louis Ransom Jr. aka Kid Prodigy, is an American child actor and model, singer, musician and rapper. He is mostly known for his role on The Amazing World of Gumball as Darwin Watterson.

Ransom was born in Royal Oak, Michigan as the son of Terrell and Katrina Ransom. Ransom showed an interest in acting and modeling very early on from watching the Disney series Hannah Montana as a child. He then enrolled in acting classes where teachers were reluctant to work with him because of his young age. Katrina later relocated to California to facilitate her son's career.

Since moving to California in late 2007, Ransom has been working consistently. He has appeared in numerous commercials including ads for Kmart, Quilted Northern, Old Navy, Elmers Glue, McDonald's and SpongeBob SpongeSoap. He has made guest appearances on several shows including ABC's The Middle and Detroit 1-8-7, CBS's CSI:NY and NBC's The Jay Leno Show. He has also appeared in a few movies including the 2011 flick The Chicago 8 and 2012 Lifetime movie Murder on the 13th Floor. He was the voice of the character of Darwin Watterson (second voice for series, third overall) as of the third season through the eleventh episode of the fifth season of Cartoon Network's The Amazing World of Gumball. He was replaced by Donielle T. Hansley Jr. due to his voice hitting puberty.
