Johnny Sequoyah is an American actress. She was born in Los Angeles to her film and television producer mother Heather Rae, and actor and writer-director father, Russell Friedenberg

She stayed at her mother’s home state of Idaho until she was eight.

Her parents are partners in both personal and professional life

Her parents exchanged their wedding vows in 1999 and have been together since then. 

They are partners in both personal and professional life and have worked together for more than two decades collaborating on dozen films, including documentaries and features. 

Since both are from the entertainment world, they usually talk about the creative dialogues that would continue from the kitchen table to the bedroom.

How did she become an overnight TV star?

Johnny had been intrigued by watching actors from her parent’s movie units since a very young age. 

Initially, her mother and father hesitated because they knew the path was not an easy one. 

They finally were convinced by her PowerPoint, where she had all the explanations they needed to let her be an actress and let her audition. 

She was eight when she began acting in independent films.

At 12, her parents notified her that she had to be at a stay-away camp, and for Johnny, the stay-away camp would give a panic attack. 

It was during the same time when her mother and father were working on their new film “Among Ravens.” So her father wrote a part for her in the film, which surprisingly became the central focus of the film.

Johnny was quickly signed by Untitled Management when the film was shown as work–in–progress. 

At her second audition, she booked the NBC series “Believe.” 

According to her father, Johnny, who was 10 at the time, did not know what it meant to her at first since their life at 10 is all about friends and family. 

They were shocked to see Johnny everywhere after the marketing of the show and at the same were concerned about her safety and psychological wellbeing, thinking, what if she became one of those Hollywood kids that just sat around taking selfies all day? 

However, their concern soon disappeared, knowing Johnny did not give a crap about all of those.

She has two elder brothers, Chema and Emilio. Her brothers were born to her mother from her previous relationships. 

Chema and Emilio have zero interest in the entertainment world and prefer to stay out of the spotlight.
