Cooper was born in and currently lives in Andorra. Both his parents are from New Zealand parents so he is bilingual (English/ Spanish).
He was discovered by director Jose Pozo when he attended a casting for fun. With no previous acting experience Cooper illustrated potential and was cast as the lead in the short film Private Kingdom and subsequently the lead role of Nick, in the feature film titled NICK (Outliers in the US market) at just 13 years old.
Cooper discovered not only a talent but an absolute passion for acting and is determined to continue down this career path. He is not afraid to take on diverse or difficult roles or push himself both mentally or physically.
