Childhood & Education

At the age of 16, he left the school to become an actor, but immediately he was infected with labyrinthitis, leaving him 70 percent hearing impaired. In the same year, his parents split up. So, he began to live alone in a caravan in his grandparents' garden, near Stratford-upon-Avon.
However, he didn’t leave his passion for acting. Meanwhile, he won a scholarship to get trained at the Bristol Old Vic’s theatre school and graduated in 2002. After that, he went to work in theatres and eventually on big screens.
