Anthony Quintal aka Lohanthony was born and raised in Methuen Massachusetts. At the age of 10 Anthony started making YouTube videos with a group of friends he made on the internet, under the channel name ‘SevenIncredibleKids.’ In 2012 Anthony started posting videos to his own solo channel under the name Lohanthony. Anthony quickly rose to internet fame after his “car vlogging” and “basic bitches” videos went viral - even getting retweeted by the likes of Katy Perry. After freshman year of high school, Anthony transferred to online school so that he could then move to LA and pursue acting as well as further his Youtube career.

We caught up with Anthony this past week to discuss what it was like gaining so much popularity at such a young age. We discussed the pressures he felt of constantly posting to social media to trying to be someone on video who he no longer felt he way. We then delved into why he has decided to take some away from being in front of the camera and the different avenues that he plans on going down in his future.
