Some people may have seen Brit actor/model Alex Pettyfer, in ads for Burberry, Gap and Ralph Lauren but he first made a name for himself when he was mush younger!

Alex Pettyfer was born on 10 April 1990 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire England. He began his career as a child model for the Gap, and then moved on to acting in his school plays, one being Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

He attended a theatre school after school, and then made his acting debut in the film, Tom Browns Schooldays, which he nabbed the lead for. He then went on and stole the lead for the film Stormbreaker… which he actually chose over the film Eragon because of his fear of flying! Plus, this way he managed to stay in Britain to film Stormbreaker.

Pettyfer is not much of a Wild Thing, however, he co-starred with Emma Roberts on the film.  An on and off screen romance budded between this duo but it was short lived. For Pettyfer, it will remain a part of him forever because he has a tattoo in honour of Roberts – two hearts interlinked with the initials ‘ER’ in the middle of it. Sickly, we know. They do remain good friends though according to the actor himself.

This coming year will be a huge milestone for Pettyfer’s career. He is set to star in not one, not two, but three films! His next film set to release 23 February 2011, I Am Number Four, is about  a group of four people running for their lives as a ruthless enemy is sent to destroy them… in order of number. His lovely co-star for the film is Dianna Agron (Quinn in Glee) and on a little side note; they are now officially a couple! Keeping it within the business we see Alex?

We will also see Pettyfer starring in the modern day twist of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! Now this may not be a Tale as old as time, but it is definitely one to see. Pettyfer will be starring along side Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) in the film Beastly. It is set to release on 15 April 2011.

And if these don’t fit your fancy, you can see him in the film, Now, set to be released on 30 September 2011. It has an all star cast with Justin Timberlake, Olivia Wilde and Amanda Seyfried to name a few! It is about the future where ageing has stopped, but people must pay to stay alive.

Keep an eye out because we will definitely be seeing a lot more of Alex Pettyfer in the future and we definitely don’t mind… especially now he’s grown up a bit from his boyish look in Tom Brown’s School Days!

Catch I Am Number Four in cinemas on 23 February 2011 and watch the trailer below.
