Is a fan of Derby County football club, with whom he had trials as a schoolboy. His grandfather, Ken Gutteridge, was a professional football player and manager. Had hopes of joining the Army, much against his mother's wishes. His juvenile criminal record of charges relating to alcohol and violence prevented him from being enlisted in the Army. As a child, his father's job on the railways meant he had free train travel to get to auditions. Made his film debut at age 16 in Shane Meadows' gritty drama This Is England. Received a one-year young offender's referral order when he was 17. Starred in a 2008 educational film highlighting the dangers of teenage peer pressure, for the Derbyshire Constabulary. Became an overnight heartthrob in 2009, as Cook in the E4 teen drama Skins. Was named an ambassador of Derby County football club's charity partnership with Macmillian Cancer Support. Has credited Angelina Jolie, who directed him in the film 'Unbroken' in 2014, with changing his outlook on life. On World Refugee Day, 20 June 2016, took part in a film for the United Nations' refugee agency, UNHCR, to help raise awareness of the global refugee crisis.
