Date of Birth : Dec 1st 1985
English actor best known for his work in Being Julia, Like Minds and The Boat That Rocked. He began as a child actor and he was in the 1996 television adaptation of Gulliver’s Travels, directed by his father and co-starring his mother. He reemerged in 2004 with Vanity Fair and Being Julia.
In 2006, he played the role of Nigel in a psychological thriller, Like Minds (aka Murderous Intent). It tells the story of two boys Alex (played by Eddie Redmayne) and Nigel placed together as roommates, much to Alex’s objections. Alex is horrified and yet fascinated with the ritual-influenced deaths that begin to occur around them, and when Nigel himself is murdered, Alex is blamed.
He was originally cast as the lead in the sci-fi trilogy Jumper. However, two months into production New Regency and 20th Century Fox, fearing the gamble of spending over $100 million on a movie starring an unknown actor, replaced him with the “more prominent” Hayden Christensen.
