In 2011, Douglas Booth played Pip in the well-received BBC version of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. Just recently, he starred as the most famous of all doomed romantic heroes, Romeo, in Romeo and Juliet. And next year he's set to appear opposite Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic Noah.
In just a few short years, Douglas has amassed some impressive credentials. But he has in fact been acting since a young age. “I got my first film at 16," he says, "and from there I’ve worked ever since so I’m kind of lucky in that way.”
In Noah, Douglas plays Noah's son Shem. He's part of an all-star cast that includes Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone. In the film, Noah experiences apocalyptic visions of destruction, prompting him to build an ark to save his family.
It sounds suitably epic to us and we can't wait to see Douglas' role in the film. So what's on the horizon for the rising Brit actor? Well it’s not all historic costumes – he’s also down for the Wachowskis’ forthcoming sci-fi Jupiter Ascending. We can't wait to see where he goes next.
Noah is released on 28 March 2014. In the meantime, tell us what your favourite Douglas performance is so far.
