Douglas Booth Attends Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards

London, England - Actor Douglas Booth 20 looked handsome as he attended The Prince's Trust Celebrate
Success Awards at Odeon Leicester Square on March 26, 2013 in London, England.

Douglas John Booth born July 9th, 1992 is an English actor. Booth rose to prominence following his portrayal of Boy George in the BBC Two television drama Worried About the Boy. He has more recently appeared in Christopher and His Kind. He has been cast, opposite Hailee Steinfeld, in the role of Romeo in Carlo Carlei's upcoming film adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Booth was born in London, England, the son of Vivien, an artist, and a father who works in shipping for Citigroup. His father is of English descent and his mother is of half Spanish and half Dutch ancestry.

In an interview with Vogue magazine, Booth reflected on his struggle with dyslexia, stating, "I struggled with dyslexia when I was young, so I knew that whatever I did it wouldn't be academic. Then playing Agamemnon - well, at the age of 12 - I thought 'I rather like being the centre of attention', this is where I want to be."

As a model, Booth has appeared in several campaigns for the luxury English label Burberry, including those alongside Emma Watson and Lily Donaldson. He played the role of Pip in the BBC One adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations broadcast in December 2011. In June 2012, he was confirmed for the role of Shem in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.
