Jacob Tremblay, born in Vancouver, BC, is playing Flounder in Disney’s live-action version of a classic animated film.

Tremblay, who might be best remembered for his role in the 2015 film Room, shared a photo from a The Little Mermaid press tour, and the comments are filled with surprise at how much the actor has grown up.

“Whew you got tall,” said another response.

Others seemed angry that he’d grown up.

“WHY ARE YOU GROWN,” was one of the comments.

“Jacob Chalamet šŸ˜³” was another much-liked reaction.

Tremblay’s role in The Little Mermaid adds to an extensive resume of voiceover work for the Vancouver actor. Some other stand-out roles include playing Robin in an animated series about Harley Quinn, and he was a shining star in the Doctor Sleep film.
