Biography

Nicholas Hoult grew up from a boy to a man, literally, in front of the cameras. The British actor delivered a standout performance in the touching comedy feature "About a Boy" (2002), where he played an awkward schoolboy who teaches valuable life lessons to a shallow bachelor (Hugh Grant). It only took a few years, however, for Hoult to shed his wholesome image - as well as his clothes - for the highly controversial and provocative series "Skins" (Channel 4, 2007). Playing a manipulative and sexually charged young man on the British series transformed Hoult from a child star to a serious actor, paving the way for a featured role opposite Colin Firth in Tom Ford's directorial debut "A Single Man" (2009). Landing more film projects and a modeling campaign for Ford's eyewear line, Hoult emerged as a sophisticated and versatile young actor with some of the best eyebrows in the business. In 2011, he ventured into blockbuster film territory by starring in "X-Men: First Class" as the powerful mutant Beast, a role that signaled the beginning of Hoult's international adult stardom.
