In addition to his unusual appearance, the parents awarded the youngest son a unique name, Avan Tudor. He also has an older brother Ketan, the main participant of all boyish games and adventures in childhood and now a music producer and his sister Melissa.
The media diverge in the views of his education. Some argue that Jogia studied at Killarney Secondary School and then left it in the name of art.
Others, based on his confession, report that the child was taken from the educational institution by his parents and transferred to the home school. However, it did not prevent him from becoming a member of the school punk band.
Then the 17-year-old boy went to try his luck in Los Angeles, ambitiously deciding for himself that if he does not manage to gain a foothold in the cinema, he will return to his Canadian homeland. However, he had experience on television in 4 projects by this time.
The teenager had the first role in the TV movie at the age of 14. He played the younger brother Gwen Araujo, a young transgender girl who died at the hands of 4 men in the debut documentary.

In 2013, his filmography was enriched by the movie Twisted, which brought him the first nomination for the Teen Choice Awards and soon the actor expanded his role to the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun. The project Tut allowed Avan to get acquainted with the idol of early years Ben Kingsley.
"It is necessary to try to get to the truth in the movie Twisted as well as in the movie Pretty Little Liars but the history is more about the human relations and the arising tension between heroes. The series has a social message; it covers very topical issues," the celebrity shared his opinion on the work done.

For example, the hero René Magritte in the masterpiece The Lovers.
They do not talk about marriage and children. However, the guy is adamant about such an intimate question as the personal life:
"If I'm dating someone for five months and she's cheating on me, she is not worth. I'm not so attached to giving her a second chance."
