Quaden, a 9-year-old Australian schoolboy with dwarfism, shocked the world in a video in which he asked his mother for a knife to kill himself and stop the harassment he was experiencing at school. Messages of support came from all over the world. Today, he is going to make a movie!
The video shocked the world in 2020. It showed Quaden Baynes, 9 years old, in tears. Give me a knife, I want to kill myself, the Brisbane schoolboy sobbed to his mother who decided to post the video on Facebook.
The child, who has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, was a victim of school bullying at the time. I want people to know, parents, educators, teachers, that these are the effects of bullying, said his mother Yarraka Bayles. 
The hashtag #WeStandWithQuadel quickly gained momentum and spread beyond Australia's borders. The young boy of Aboriginal origin had received the support of the Australian actor Hugh Jackman (X-Men, The Prestige, Prisoners ...), the Australian rugby league …
Visibly touched by the video, director George Miller had offered a role to Quaden in his film Three Thousand Years Waiting for You with Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, which will be released in France this Wednesday. It was great for us, and it was good for him, said the director, also of Australian origin.
A first role that calls for others. He did such a good job that he has a small role in Furiosa, added the father of the Mad Max saga. Mad Max: Furiosa, which is scheduled for release in 2024 is the prequel to the last installment released in 2016: Mad Max: Fury Road and tells the story of the female character of the same name played by Charlize Theron.
