SAN ANTONIO – Taking on the world of acting and show business can be intimidating for anyone, but doing it as a child actor, comes with even more challenges. In “The Seventh Day” actor Tristan Riggs must take on an evil role in this horror film co-starring Guy Pearce.

“This Nicholas Miller is possessed by a demon, so he’s probably not scared about anything and he feels in control and powerful,” actor Tristan Riggs said. “Another thing, I practiced all my lines in different ways.”

Riggs is a Texas native and he says his biggest role models are his parents.

“They work so hard and they help me through my acting,” Riggs said.
