Who Is The Young Actor Brenton Thwaites?

Page 1 of 212

An impressive cast of screen veterans, promising young newcomers, a multi-millions selling pop star and Katie Holmes have assembled for the dystopian sci-fi pic The Giver, due for imminent release. Of course, a PG-13 sci-fi film aimed at the vast Hunger Games young-adult audience wouldn’t be complete without a handsome hunk occupying the leading role. Curiously, and perhaps bravely on the part of director Philip Noyce (The Bone Collector, Patriot Games), the lead role has gone to a youngster who is relatively rookie in the big screen business.

Brenton Thwaites The Giver PremiereThwaites is poised to ascend towards the accolade of Hollywood hunk.

Brenton Thwaites can almost guarantee to find himself in every adolescent female magazine’s ‘Hottest Guys’ list. 25 years old, permanently tanned from the Aussie sun and still sporting boyish good looks the young Australian will appear alongside screen heavyweights Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep in the futuristic thriller. The Giver carries a wide appeal for audiences who are currently in thrall to dystopian action films. Thwaites will surely ascend to greater status in the industry and extend his fanbase beyond the growing army of teenage devotees.

Thwaites is currently most well-known for his role in the coming-of-age Australian drama SLiDE, which ran for a single season, as well as a stint in the long-running Aussie soap opera Home & Away. Eagle-eyed American audiences may recognise Thwaites as Prince Philip, who was a small part in the Disney fantasy Maleficent. He already has a slew of releases pencilled in over the next two years and if responses to The Giver are favourable then the handsome actor could find himself as one of Hollywood’s go-to leading men. However he must be wary, for the Hollywood landscape is also littered with attractive young things whose acting skills haven’t quite lived up to expectations- Hayden Christensen springs to mind.
