Josh Whitehouse was a British actor who broke out in the United States in 2017 when it was announced that he was cast in a musical remake of the cult 80s film "Valley Girl." Raised in the English countryside village of Burwardsley, Whitehouse grew up in a family that encouraged a life in the arts. His mother was a painter, while his father wrote for a living. At a very young age Whitehouse knew he wanted to be an artist. The idea of becoming a screen actor, however, had never crossed his mind. He enjoyed drawing and painting, and excelled at art classes in high school. When he was 12-years-old, however, his older brother, who was the most musically inclined in the family, introduced Whitehouse to the guitar. Before long, Whitehouse was hooked and quickly started a band with his friends. In addition to his thriving music career, Whitehouse continued pursuing his passion for making art, and would often spend most days painting and drawing. In the meantime, Whitehouse took up a second career as a male model, which paid the bills while he pursued his art and music. Then one day in 2009, Whitehouse met the established film director Elaine Constantine. Constantine had an idea for a movie about a 70s dance craze in Northern England, which was inspired by American soul music, and was so impressed with Whitehouse that she asked him to star in it. Despite having never taken an acting lesson, Whitehouse agreed. He spent an entire year learning the very specific style of dance for the film that would become 2014's "Northern Soul." The independently produced film was a critical hit, with Whitehouse receiving rave reviews for his performance. After the successful release of "Northern Soul" more acting roles began pouring in for Whitehouse. In 2016 he appeared in the films "Alleycats" and "The Receptionist," thus further enhancing his status as an up-and-coming actor. In 2017 it was announced he'd be starring as Randy opposite Jessica Rothe as Julie in a musical remake of the cult film "Valley Girl." The original film, released in 1983, starred Nicholas Cage and Deborah Foreman.
