Who is Dakota Lotus?
Dakota Lotus is an American television actor. He has gained fame for portraying the eponymous character Cooper Wrather in Disney Channel’s ‘Coop & Cami Ask the World’. Since he was a child, he has been interested in both music and acting. He was taught musical theatre by actress, Janet Adderley, for eight years and was active as a musician doing live performances when he landed the role of Cooper Wrather. Lotus is set to make his big screen debut in the upcoming film ‘Skate God’. He has also appeared in the TV documentary ‘Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party’.
Dakota Lotus was selected for the role of Cooper "Coop" Wrather in the series ‘Coop & Cami Ask the World.’ On May 4, 2018, the series got the green light. Three months later, in August 2018, Disney Channel revealed the show’s premiere date, which was October 12, 2018. Created by Boyce Bugliari and Jamie McLaughlin, the sitcom tells the story of Cooper "Coop" Wrather and Cameron "Cami" Wrather (Ruby Rose Turner), two middle school children who start crowdsourcing all of their decision-making online. They do whatever option receives the most votes. Besides Lotus and Turner, the series also stars Olivia Sanabia as Charlotte Wrather, Albert Tsai as Fred, Paxton Booth as Ollie Wrather, and Rebecca Metz as Jenna Wrather.
In the series premiere, the audience sees the Wrather siblings hosting their web show ‘Would You Wrather?’, which has garnered about 100,000 viewers. Their fans, known as the Wratherheads, vote to help the siblings solve their problems. The other members of the cast are gradually introduced. Olivia is the older sister of Cooper and Cami. Jenna is their widowed mother. Her husband, Cooper and his siblings’ father, had passed away two years earlier.
In an interview, Lotus has described Cooper Wrather as a “kind, generous, and confident guy, who loves his family and the livestream. He is more of the heart of the duo.”
Lotus is presently working in his upcoming film ‘Skate God’, which is in its pre-production stage. He has been cast as a character named Scrag. In 2018, he was featured in the TV documentary ‘Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party’. As of 2019, he is represented by the Michael Abrams management group.
Lotus’ mainstream stardom has successfully transitioned to social media as well. He has tens of thousands of followers on Instagram, where he posts his covers of various popular songs. The oldest photograph on his page was posted in May 2017. A close shot of his dog, the post has accumulated hundreds of likes to date. These days, each of his posts gets thousands of likes.
