Thomas Brodie-Sangster is a world-famous actor known for roles in Love Actually, Nanny McPhee, The Queen’s Gambit and more.

But you may not know that this star was born in Southwark.

According to Tuko, he went to Pimlico School, although it seems that all of his roles as a child star kept him quite busy.

In interview Sangster did with the Evening Standard back in 2015, he told readers that he grew up in Elephant and Castle with his parents who are both also actors.

He never went to drama school and told the Evening Standard that he actually failed drama at school, not liking the idea of performing in front of his classmates.

Sangster got his first acting role in a BBC television film Station Jim and then got parts in a few other television films before landing his big break in the smash Christmas film Love Actually.

In Love Actually, Sangster played Sam, the stepson of Liam Neeson as the pair navigate the loss of Sam’s mum and Sam learns how it feels to be in love.

This was quickly followed by the success of Nanny McPhee, in which Sangster played the eldest of the seven children transformed by Nanny McPhee, played by Emma Thompson.

If Sangster does not look familiar to you, he may sound familiar since he has voiced Ferb in the hit children’s television show Phineas and Ferb since 2007.

He went on to star as Paul McCartney in Nowhere Boy and even learned to play guitar left-handed for the role.

In 2014, Sangster then starred in the popular, dystopian series The Maze Runner which was franchised and led to two more films.

More recently, viewers might recognised an adult Sangster as Benny in The Queen’s Gambit, one of the few people who challenges Beth in a game of chess.

Last year, he appeared as the Artful Dodger in a mini series on Disney+ which explores the character originally created in the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist.
