You Know Him From: His blockbuster debut as young Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) in X-Men: First Class; starring roles in the 2007 indie Son of Rambow, opposite Will Poulter, and Is Anybody There?, opposite Michael Caine.

What’s Next: Broken, a coming-of-age drama set in Northern London; a lead role in the forthcoming The Wanderers, directed by Luke Snellin, about a teenage band of ’90s Brit-pop wannabes.

“I’m looking to become that more grown-up, mature character instead of the cute, naïve boy. There are so many actors playing 20, 21 [years old], and they’re actually 50-year-olds. I don’t really know why [casting directors] still do it; it’s a very frustrating thing when you read the script and it goes to someone who is old enough to be your dad. It’s pretty ridiculous.”
