Thomas Sidney Jerome "Tom" Sturridge (born December 1985) is an Englishmarker actor best known for his work in Being Julia, Like Minds and The Boat That Rocked.

Personal life

Sturridge was born in Londonmarker, Englandmarker, the son of director Charles Sturridge and his wife, actress Phoebe Nicholls, and a grandson of actor Anthony Nicholls and actress Faith Kent.

He was educated at Winchester Collegemarker but quit before sitting his A levels. He is the eldest child, his younger siblings are Arthur and Matilda. Matilda Sturridge is presently an actress, and younger brother Arthur was an original cast member of School of Comedy, which has aired on E-4 after finding success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Both Arthur and Matilda attended The Harrodian School, which is where Tom met Robert Pattinson, who along with musicians Marcus Foster, Bobby Long and Sam Bradley make up a group of friends dubbed as The Brit Pack by media outlets.

Career

Sturridge began as a child actor and he was in the 1996 television adaptation of Gulliver's Travels, directed by his father and co-starring his mother. He reemerged in 2004 with Vanity Fair and Being Julia.

In 2006, he played the role of Nigel in a psychological thriller, Like Minds (aka Murderous Intent). It tells the story of two boys, Alex (played by Eddie Redmayne) and Nigel, placed together as roommates, much to Alex's objections. Alex is horrified and yet fascinated with the ritual-influenced deaths that begin to occur around them, and when Nigel himself is murdered, Alex is blamed.

He was originally cast as the lead in the sci-fi trilogy Jumper. However, two months into production New Regency and 20th Century Fox, fearing the gamble of spending over $100 million on a movie starring an unknown actor, replaced him with the "more prominent" Hayden Christensen.

In 2009, he appeared as Carl, one of the lead roles in the Richard Curtis comedy, The Boat That Rocked, alongside Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans and Philip Seymour Hoffman. In September, 2009, he made his stage debut in Punk Rock, a new play by Simon Stephens at the Lyric Hammersmithmarker Theatre, portraying a character loosely modeled after the teenage killers at Columbine High School. For that performance, he has been nominated for Most Outstanding Newcomer in the 2009 Evening Standard Awards.

He appears alongside Rachel Bilson (who co-starred in Jumper) in the forthcoming indie-romance, Waiting for Forever.
