Mason Gooding (born November 14, 1996) is an American actor, best known for his roles in Booksmart, Everything's Gonna Be Okay and Love, Victor. He is the son of Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr.
Gooding was born in Los Angeles to Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sara Kapfer. He is the middle of three children. His paternal grandfather was Cuba Gooding Sr., the former lead singer of R&B band, The Main Ingredient and his uncle is actor Omar Gooding. His paternal great-grandfather was originally from Barbados. Mason attended Windward High School in California where he played varsity football for four years. Gooding graduated in 2015. Gooding admitted that he wasn't the best student or the most social persona in high school. Instead he focused on things he was very into, like sports and theater. While his father supported Mason potentially becoming an actor, he had to wait until he was 18 to pursue acting professionally. Though his mind was made up, Gooding agreed to go to college after visiting Cuba on set in New York. Gooding enrolled in New York University Tisch School of the Arts to study dramatic writing and psychology. He left school during his junior year after he booked a few gigs to pursue acting full time. His mother had a hard time accepting the change due to her experiences with his father. However, he plans to finish his degree at some point.
