He began acting at the age of 8, after a talent spotting casting director saw him at his local after school drama club, The Young Actors Theatre in Islington. Following on from a couple of small roles in films, he was cast, at 10 as Bruno in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008). Since then, he has been acclaimed for his titular roles Hugo (2011) and Ender's Game (2013) as well as other major roles as Nathan in A Brilliant Young Mind (2014), Jude in 10,000 Saints (2015), Mordred in the BBC's Merlin (2008) and Norman in Nanny McPhee Returns (2010).
