Lakeview High School student Cruikshank comes from a huge family of eight children. Lucas is a middle child among his five sisters and two brothers. Fred Figglehorn’s character was born in 2008 when Lucas and his two cousins were making a video for Helloween but soon it was decided that Fred deserved his own series, and a special YouTube channel. “Fred” is a six year-old boy living in a troubled family and having issues with his anger management skills. The project proved to be an instant success. The idea made Lucas Cruikshank famous and also helped him grow his net worth. To earn more money, in the series Lucas is using the strategy of promoting various products, such as T-shirts and albums and movies made by Lucas himself, as well as others.
In 2009 the channel was number one among the most subscribed channels on YouTube, and also earned Lucas a Teen Choice Award in the Choice Web Star category. Lucas Cruikshank’s success continued as his work was picked up by Nickelodeon channel which made as many as three movies that are based on this now-famous Fred character. The first one came out in 2010 and was called “Fred: the Movie” and it was followed by the second one “Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred” which was released in 2012. Finally, in 2012 there was “Fred: the Show”, a series of short episodes about Fred, as well as the movie “Fred3”. All these productions increased Lucas Cruikshank’s net worth.

His personal filmography now runs to over 15 projects, which have brought him several award nominations aside from the Teen Choice mentioned above.
Lucas’ personal life is another cause for his celebrity status, in that he is known for is his sexual orientation. The boy decided to announce to the world that he is gay, and he did it on a YouTube video in August 2013, at the same time answering the questions from the viewers.
