Full throttle with Beowulf’s Ed Speleers

At 17, the actor Ed Speleers was in the express lane to superstardom. With a handful of school plays to his name, and no professional experience, he was selected to play the lead in Eragon, a Hollywood adaptation of Christopher Paolini’s bestselling fantasy novel. The budget was upwards of $100m, and the cast included Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich and Rachel Weisz. What could go wrong?

Plenty, as it turned out. Although a modest box-office success, Eragon was poorly reviewed and proposed sequels never materialised. Speleers took to the life of a young movie-star, running around, going to too many parties and failing to focus on his auditions. The work quickly dried up.
