MEET THE BREAKTHROUGH BRIT SET FOR A BIG 2016.
Model-turned-actor. They’re words typically associated with some busty Victoria’s Secret Angel capable of winning the attention of an eager Hollywood producer. But it’s not just girls who make the transition. Enter Callum Turner, the 25-year-old Londoner who’s swapped Burberry billboards for the big screen. Aussies were first introduced to the talented Mr Turner through murder mystery series Glue, which aired on SBS 2 earlier this year. And there’s plenty more where that came from with no fewer than four feature films on the boil in the next 12 months, including Victor Frankenstein, starring James Mcavoy and Daniel Radcliffe. There’s also his leading role in wartime flick Queen & Country and punk rock drama Green Room, in which he stars alongside Imogen Poots. Next up, though, he’s tackling something more light-hearted: a fresh TV adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s epic page-turner War and Peace, where he plays the roguish playboy Anatole Kuragin. Or as he puts it: “Basically Justin Bieber, 200 years ago.” Just with better hair. War and Peace airs on BBC First early 2016
