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
