But it was also that success that widened his opportunities as an actor, some directors and producers have claimed that his performance as Tony as one of the things that drove their interest to cast Hoult in their projects.
Just before starting the second series of Skins he quit school and decided to dedicate his attention fully to acting.
That's what I think anyway, check it out and see what you think.
Public Service Announcement (PSA) TV commercial, "Join the Movement for Physical Activity," with Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, and Lucas Till, in their characters from X: First Class (2011) for the Action Hero by the Ad Council and the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Hoult was born in Wokingham, Berkshire, the third of four children of Glenis (née Brown; born 1954), a piano teacher, and Roger Hoult (born 1953), a retired British Airways pilot.
His siblings are James (born 1977), Rosanna (born 1984), and Clarista (born 1992). His older siblings showed interest in acting and dancing from an early age, taking classes and attending auditions, and Hoult joined them once he found it interesting too, but clarified that it was not a pushy situation from his parents, and that they were "pretty outdoorsy normal kids".
He received further acclaim for his performance as Tony Stonem in the E4 teen drama Skins.
Following these roles, Hoult found significant commercial success after landing the role of Beast in the X-Men films and the War Boy Nux in Mad Max: Fury Road, and in 2016 reprised his role as Beast in the superhero film X-Men: Apocalypse.Hoult started attending auditions after that and got his first movie role at five in the drama Intimate Relations. It was an exciting new world." He was 11 when he got cast in the critically acclaimed comedy-drama film About a Boy.After that he landed several guest appearances on TV shows such as Casualty, Silent Witness, The Bill and Doctors, among others. By the time the film was released he had already changed school, to the specialist performing arts school Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.Hoult recalls he saw acting as a hobby rather than a possible profession at that age: "I wasn't in love with it, I just enjoyed it. The movie's success gave him his first approach to Hollywood, and the film performed very well at the box office and with the critics, receiving positive reviews and nominations for awards. He continued acting in small roles but abandoned the Sylvia Young Theatre School at 14 and joined the secondary school Ranelagh because he still wasn't ready to make acting his living, and preferred to attend a regular school to keep enjoying a normal life separated from the industry.To this date he gives this and his loving family the credit of his healthy life in contrast to many child actors.I watch a lot of horror ..a lot of bad horror subsequently and this film doesn't fall into that substandard category.
