His heart was set on flying, and he studied Aviation at Trinity Western University. While waiting for a flying job, Cross began working as an extra and doing stunts. He went on to study acting at Breck Academy and landed a few roles before landing the one that ultimately changed the course of his life. After surviving an extremely challenging yet fulfilling experience filming “The International Rescue” on location in China, Vietnam and Burma, Cross decided to give acting his full focus for a year. His acting career has since taken off, and he now enjoys flying in his spare time.
