Darkly delicious actor Jamie was born in London. He attended the famously liberal private school Bedales, which The Good School Guide calls “good for 'individuals', articulate nonconformists”, so we reckon that suited Jamie just fine. A keen performer from an early age, he was a member of the National Youth Theatre and the National Youth Music Theatre.
With his dad working for Gibson Guitars and his mum being a music manager, Jamie seemed likely to head into the music biz. While he’s the singer in the band The Darling Buds, acting is what Jamie really wanted to do.
His big acting break came in 2007 when he landed the role of Anthony Hope in Tim Burton’s darkly comic Sweeney Todd alongside Johnny Depp. Since then he’s kept things dark career-wise with roles as Gellert Grindelwald the dark wizard in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as Caius the vampire in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and as Jace the Shadowhunter in the forthcoming The Mortal Instruments.
It was on the set of Harry Potter that Jamie met his future sweetheart and Ron Weasley’s little sister, the lovely Bonnie Wright. The two little wizards announced their engagement in April 2011.
