He went on to study acting at the Breck Academy and landed a few roles before the one that ultimately changed the course of his life  After surviving an extremely challenging experience filming The International Rescue, on location in China, Vietnam and Burma, Cross decided to give acting his full focus for a year. His acting career has since taken off, and he now enjoys flying in his spare time.
