Test­ing time for It boy

The Courier-Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

TEEN ac­tor Ni­cholas Hamil­ton stars in one of the big­gest films of the year, It, but he still has to sit Year 11 ex­ams.

“I do all my ex­ams this week, I get straight back into it,” said Hamil­tont (pic­tured), who flew in from Los An­ge­les on Fri­day.

He hails from the small NSW town of Al­stonville but has spent the past three weeks pro­mot­ing the film adap­ta­tion of Stephen King’s hor­ror novel in LA.

Now it’s back to the books, with his school al­low­ing him to sit ex­ams a week later than his peers.

“Every­one knows what I am do­ing at all times and they are very sup­port­ive,” Hamil­ton said.

The film has set global box of­fices records – but that doesn’t guar­an­tee him an ‘A’ in drama.

“My teach­ers want me to get into theatre and asked me to be in the school play,” he said.
