A young British actor of enormous potential, Ben Silverstone first impressed international audiences with his portrayal of Steven Carter, a 16-year-old struggling to come out of the closet in Get Real (1998). First discovered at the age of 13 by Mike Figgis, who cast him in the major role of a young schoolboy in The Browning Version (1994), Silverstone next appeared as the young Humbert Humbert in Adrian Lyne's 1997 adaptation of Lolita. The young actor's work in Simon Shore's Get Real won him great recognition on the transatlantic art house circuit and gay and lesbian film scene, and helped to establish him as a very promising talent. Following the making of Get Real, Silverstone put acting on hold to fulfill potential of another sort: in 1998 he began his degree course in English at Trinity College, Cambridge.
