    NICHOLAS HOULT was named one of Variety's "10 Actors to Watch" in 2010. He recently wrapped production for George Miller's "Fury Road," in the role of Nux, alongside Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy in the fourth instalment of the popular Mad Max film franchise.

    Hoult will next reprise his role as Hank McCoy, otherwise known as Beast, in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," in which the X-Men travel in time to change a major historical event that could globally impact man- and mutant-kind. The film will release on July 18, 2014.

    His most recent screen appearance was as the character R in "Warm Bodies." Directed by Jonathan Levine, the February 2013 release stars Dave Franco, Teresa Palmer and Analeigh Tipton.

    In 2011, Hoult was seen in Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class," with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon and Oliver Platt. He played the young Hank McCoy in this film, which took viewers back to when Professor X and Magneto discovered their powers for the first time. In 2010, he appeared in the action adventure "Clash of the Titans," starring Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson and, in 2009, in Tom Ford's directorial debut, "A Single Man," opposite Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.

    Hoult made his West End debut in the 2009 stage production of "New Boy," to outstanding reviews and sold-out performances. Adapted and directed by Russell Labey, "New Boy" tells the story of a schoolboy crush and its devastating consequences. He appeared alongside Mel Giedroyc and Ciara Jason in this adaptation of the novel.

    In 2007, Hoult starred as the lead in Julie Anne Robinson's television movie "Coming Down the Mountain," an original drama by novelist Mark Haddon about two teenage brothers, one of whom has Downs Syndrome.

    His earlier film credits include "Kidulthood," directed by Menhaj Huda; Richard E. Grant's "Wah-Wah," opposite Gabriel Byrne and Emily Watson, which is set at the end of the 1960s as Swaziland is about to receive independence from Great Britain; and Gore Verbinski's "The Weather Man," opposite Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine and Hope Davis.

    Hoult is best known for his work on the hugely successful TV series "Skins" in the UK. He landed his breakout role in 2002 when he was only 11 years old, opposite Hugh Grant in the film "About a Boy," as a young boy who will do whatever he can to make his chronically depressed mother happy, even if it causes himself grief.
