Some things are spooky beyond doubt and the case that we’re bringing today to your attention certainly is one of them: a five years old boy claims that he’s been a Hollywood actor in his previous life and brings a ton of details to prove that he’s right. What makes this case even stranger is the fact that the actor he’s talking about is actually a movie extra that nobody really heard of… yet the boy knows so much about it!
According to the boy’s mother, quoted by The Mirror, it all started when the kid was four: vivid and haunting nightmares started to plague his nights, but he never told anyone about them.
When he turned five, he could no longer hold it and shared his secret with the mother: that he used to be somebody else in a previous life and he’s reincarnated. And the level of detail he had on his previous life is what really scared his mum.
“His stories were so detailed and they were so extensive, that it just wasn’t like a child could have made it up,” the boy’s mother said, after the boy detailed how he traveled the world, worked with stars like Rita Hayworth, and danced on Broadway.
When things really proved that they were no joke, the family went with the kid to Dr Jim Tucker, a professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia. After intensive research, they have discovered, in a library in a Hollywood memorial book a photo that the boy claimed it was of him in his previous life. This guy:
After even more intensive research, the family found out that the actor’s name was Marty Martyn, who played as an extra in a 1932 film called Night After Night – he had no lines and little screen time. The actor died in 1964.
Professor Tucker, who’s investigating this case, said: “If you look at a picture of a guy with no lines in a movie, and then tell me about his life, I don’t think many of us would have come up with Marty Martyn’s life. Yet Ryan provided many details that really did fit with his life.”
And right now there is no real answer or conclusion to this story but there are so many details and spooky things that I am sure many would consider it to be true. Even I have some doubts and wonder “what if,” even though I know that these kind of stories prove to be fake. But this one, involving a kid so young… this one really gives me the creeps!
What do you think? Is it really possible that the kid says the truth or it’s nothing than his imagination and a huge coincidence?
