Described by Screen International as one of the ‘UK Stars of Tomorrow’, Edward Holcroft is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting young British actors. His recent and upcoming projects include the highly anticipated sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Sense of an Ending, and the National Theatre Live’s broadcast production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, alongside Janet McTeer and Dominic West.

Holcroft’s breakthrough role came in the Golden Globe-winning BBC mini-series, Wolf Hall, as ‘George Boleyn’, in which he starred opposite Mark Rylance, whom he had worked with before on the set of Jerusalem at the Royal Court.  Written by the Oscar nominated writer, Peter Straughan, and highly acclaimed director, Peter Kosminsky, Wolf Hall was described by critics as “close to perfect television”, receiving a total of eight Primetime Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win for Best Miniseries or Television Film.

2015 saw a busy yet successful and noteworthy year for Holcroft. In November, he starred across Ben Wishaw and Jim Broadbent in the five-part BBC thriller, London Spy. The mini-series was directed by Jakob Verbruggen and received a highly positive response from national critics, airing in the UK on BBC Two and BBC America in the US.  In February 2014, Holcroft made his feature film debut as ‘Aaron Drozdiv’ in Vampire Academy. Directed by Mark Waters, Holcroft appeared opposite Olga Kurylenko, Gabriel Byrne and Sarah Hyland.
