Jamie Campbell Bower

Where to start on 22-year-old star, Jamie Campbell Bower?! Most recently he’s starred as the new King Arthur in the medieval TV+ series Camelot, the highest rated the most-watched debut on Starz (also starring Eva Green); he also stars as Caicus in The Twilight Saga: New Moon and as the young Gellert Grindelwald in the two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows… talk about not starting out small!

Oh, and did we mention he’s set to be the young Oxford in Anonymous (2011) and Jace Wayland in City of Bones, The Mortal Instruments (series) by Cassandra Clare (2012). Plus you might also recognise him for his previous role as Anthony Hope in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

London-born Jamie was born to a creative family. His mother, Anne Elizabeth, is a music manager, and his father, David Bower, works for the Gibson Guitar Corporation. His background therefore may explain why he’s actually a pretty good all round performer and even used to be the lead singer in a band called “The Darling Buds”. However it was in 2007 that he got his big break as a family friend recommended him to audition for the part of Anthony in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street while he was still studying at Bedales School in Hampshire.

In 2008, Jamie then played Rocker in the film RocknRolla and Jack in Winter in Wartime. 2009 was his big year though, as not only did he star in the remake of the series The Prisoner as Number 11-12, but he was also casts as Volturi member, Caius, in the film The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which coincidentally made him tens of thousands followers on Twitter! We are also curious to see his upcoming performance as young Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows Part 2 (out 15th July) because rumour has it that Gellert might have be Dumbledore’s “possible lover”… if you believe the hype.

Dabbling in music and film, Jamie has also got a background in fashion too as he was once a part-time model with Select Model Management in London. He attended Burberry’s return to London Fashion Week catwalk and still models clothes for his designer ex-girlfriend Zoe Graham.

Oh and before we forget…he’s also got engaged to actress Bonnie Wright (aka Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter) in April this year! No wonder he’s so popular with the Potter crowd!

We’re expecting big things from this multi-tasker!
