At just 25 years old, Evan Mock has already visited multiple skate parks from his native Hawaii to New York and has mingled with the Upper East Side elite in HBO Max’s Gossip Girl.
Now the actor can say he has brushed shoulders with politicians and the press after attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on his first trip to Washington D.C.
Speaking to DailyMail.com on the red carpet before the meal and Trevor Noah‘s roasting of Biden, he said he didn’t know about the dinner until he got invited.

‘But I’m really excited. I know what it’s about now, I just did my research so I’m really excited to hear what Trevor Noah is gonna say.
‘I hope he doesn’t hold back, and I hope he keeps things fun,’ he told DailyMail.com.
‘I don’t know how funny Joe Biden’s speech is gonna be. I think Trevor Noah really knows how to do it.’
