An Australian boy who went viral in 2020 after begging his horrible bullies to leave him alone at school has landed himself the ultimate revenge role in a Hollywood flick alongside Chris Hemsworth.
Quaden Bayles initially went viral on TikTok after his mum, Yarraka posted a now-deleted video of her son extremely distressed after a rough day in school.
In the clip, Yarraka explained her indigenous son was getting picked on for his condition known as achondroplasia - short-limbed dwarfism caused by the slowing down the growth of bone in the cartilage of the growth plate, according to Healthline.
It wasn’t long after making headlines all over the globe that the young boy was spotted by ‘Mad Max’ director George Miller who handpicked the 11-year-old to be in his film ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’.
Miller was so impressed with Bayles' acting skills that he ended up keeping on and has cast him in the prequel to ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’.
"It was good for us and it was good for him. And he did such a good job that he’s got a small role in Furiosa,” the director told The Sydney Morning Herald

Quaden is well on his way to making a successful acting career for himself.
The young actor recently shared a snap of the cast for the upcoming film, which includes his name next to some major A-listers including Chris Hemsworth and Anya Taylor-Joy.
“Can’t wait to watch on the big screen next year,” he captioned the Instagram post.
The comments section was filled with love and support for the young Aussie, with many congratulating him for scoring a role in the extremely anticipated post-apocalyptic film.
“Whaaat! This is so cool, ” said one commenter.
Another agreed: “Congrats Quaden. You are such a wonderful young man. Can’t wait to see this myself.”
“Quaden the actor. Going Hollywood! I’ll be the first in theatres for it,” wrote a third fan.
I’m pretty sure those bullies will be kicking themselves right now… Congrats Quaden!
