Pitt Meadows’ Connor Levins has been nominated for the third time for a Young Artists Award.

This time, it’s his performance in the television series End Game that’s drawing accolades.

“One thing I love about the awards is all the people. I get to see people I have met before, which is very cool. It’s lots of fun,” says Levins, 12.

Levins, a student at Pitt Meadows elementary, is preparing to join other thespians at the Annual Young Artists Awards in California on May 6.

The Hollywood-based, non-profit organization, now in its 33rd year of handing out awards, will honour child and teen stars, who will be judged for their performances in 2011.

“I am very excited to be nominated for a third time. I feel so lucky,” he says.

Levins is up against 12 other actors for best performance in a TV series for his role as Keaton Hart, a young boy who is kidnapped in the first episode of the TV drama End Game.

End Game is an original series about a brilliant chess master.  Traumatized by the murder of his fiancé, Arkady Balagan has become a prisoner in his luxury Vancouver hotel, terrified to step outside. To pay his bill, Balagan starts solving mysteries, using an unlikely band of hotel employees and chess fanatics to do his legwork. Arrogant, brilliant and charismatic, the Russian-born Balagan is able to envision his unknown opponent’s motives and moves. He imagines events, interviews the living and the dead, and runs conflicting scenarios all in his head.

Levins, who has been acting since he was two, recently finished work on the Steven Spielberg television production Falling Skies.
