Youth and early career
Ziv grew up in Florida and, at a young age, showed talent in singing. He loved to act and aspired to find a career as a film actor, using his singing talents to help him land roles in musicals and the like.
One of his first acting roles was in an episode of “The Blacklist” in 2017; starring James Spader, it follows the story of a criminal who was once a US Navy officer, and after evading the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for many years, he gives himself up to become an informant, convincing them that he has compiled a blacklist of all the world’s most dangerous criminals, and is willing to give up the information in exchange for immunity.
The show was acclaimed throughout its run, making it a great first step for Zaifman, despite only having a small role in one episode.
PT Barnum – A Story
Zaifman’s next project would be his most defining career so far, as the singing voice of Ellis Rubin in “The Greatest Showman.” The show is a biographical film, depicting the life of showman Phineas Taylor Barnum or PT Barnum, who founded the Barnum and Bailey Circus, which throughout its run billed itself as “The Greatest Show on Earth”, hence the movie name.
Barnum was a small business owner who discovered a desire to pursue a career in entertainment. He first purchased the Scudder American Museum which he used as a platform to market various pranks such as the Fiji mermaid, actually a monkey sewn into a fish, making it look like the skeleton of a mermaid. These pranks were what he would become known for – in 1850 he teamed up with opera singer Jenny Lind for a 150-night American tour, for which he paid her an unprecedented $1,000 a night for his work. While he suffered many setbacks during this period, his museum flourished, expanding and gaining the first aquarium in the United States.
The later career of PT Barnum
While Barnum’s most enduring and famous achievement was his circus, his later career was marked by service in government, as he became a member of the Connecticut Legislative Assembly. He was very keen on a change in the American Constitution, opposed to the practices of slavery, expressing his Christian beliefs that a soul should not be subjected to involuntary servitude. He also fought for causes such as street lighting, prostitution laws, alcohol restrictions and a better state water supply, as well as the establishment of Bridgeport Hospital in 1878. Most of those accomplishments were overshadowed by its traveling circus and monster-filled museum, as the public would call it.
The success of the greatest showman
The movie has gained a lot of traction since its announcement, earning top acting talent such as Hugh Jackman, Zendaya, and Zac Efron. The film is inspired by Barnum’s museum and his career in entertainment, including his work with Lind as well as his circus. Production on the film took up most of 2017, with it slated for release later in the year. The film received mixed reviews from critics, though it did not prevent generally positive recognition for its music, production, and acting. Hugh Jackman garnered numerous nominations for his work and the film’s score garnered numerous nominations, with the song “This Is Me” winning a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
While its soundtrack garnered a lot of attention, it was also noted that several actors did not sing their respective songs. Zendaya, Hugh and Zac performed their songs, while Loren Allred provided the voice for actress Rebecca Ferguson, who played Swedish nightingale Jenny Lind. Ziv also sang and can be heard on the track “A Million Dreams”. The film was commercially successful, becoming the third highest-grossing musical in the United States, earning a total of $435 million worldwide, as opposed to its $84 million budget.
Recent work and personal life
Since the success of “The Greatest Showman,” Zaifman has had another film project, a follow-up to his work in the previous film, cast in the 2018 independent film “To Dust,” which starred Matthew Broderick and Geza Rohrig. .
The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and tells the story of a Jewish man trying to move on after losing his wife to cancer. He then finds an unusual association with a rabbi and a professor of biology.
After his work there, things have been quiet for Ziv for the past few years. Speculation is that he is continuing his education and may eventually pursue more acting opportunities as he goes along. However, it is also possible that he will not continue his initial acting work, as is the case with several child actors.
Ziv is young and single, and probably not focused on finding a long-term relationship as he is still focused on education. He has also just started his career in the entertainment industry, which may leave him with little time for a girlfriend. Not much information has been revealed about him other than his love for singing and acting.
