2011 saw him star as Pip in the BBC One adaptation of Great Expectations alongside Gillian Anderson and Ray Winstone and the BBC film Christopher and His Kind. His Hollywood breakthrough came in 2013 playing opposite Hailee Steinfeld in a new adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. He recently finished filming blockbuster Noah (2014) co- starring Russell Crowe and Emma Watson.
