As a child, Hilliard did not aspire to become an actor. Instead, he liked to play pretend and then one day asked his parents to take him to an audition.
He shared about not knowing to act to Fangoria Magazine, "I didn't know I could do it at first. I always liked to play pretend and make my own stories and movie trailers with my parents. One day, I got asked if I wanted to audition for a commercial."
He added, "I booked that and then had one more audition before Haunting came up. I have been an actor ever since and love doing it. I also like to make my own LEGO movies."
Furthermore, as he started acting in horror movies at a young age, rather than scary, he found them adventurous. He told the Fansided Magazine that 'Goosebumps' is his favorite book, "I love reading the Goosebumps books and enjoy the movies too. Except, they're not really that scary, they're more adventure filled. My favorite scary movies are probably A Quiet Place and The Birds."
