Lakota Johnson is a model and digital influencer whose profile is rapidly on the rise.
Lakota was born in 2001 on the Gold Coast, his father is from the film industry in the US and his mother is Australian. At high school Lakota was a keen sportsman and at the young age of 15 competed in state basketball as well as engaging in more artistic pursuits and then joining CHIC Management at 16 years of age with the full support of his family.
Lakota’s winning smile and striking looks soon secured him modelling campaigns with a number of youth-targeted edgy fashion brands including Universal Store, City Beach, Jay Jays, Footlocker, Nike and Surf Stitch.
Lakota developed a strong digital following on Instagram but when he joined Tik Tok in January 2019 he suddenly developed a huge following globally, as people shared his unique style of videos. Within 7 weeks he reached 7 million likes and gained half a million followers. He is known in the Tik Tok arena as “the boy with the smile” and started trends on the platform like “zoom in”.
Lakota for the past several months has been training intensely with an acting coach, who believes he has a huge natural talent, and this is now Lakota’s primary focus. However, he is also taking singing lessons to broaden career opportunities as he has a keen interest and a natural ability for both singing as well as acting.
Given Lakota’s dual citizenship for the US and Australia and the fact he can base himself in LA with family, it enables him to pursue international opportunities as well as local ones.
