Freddie Stroma        

English Actor

Freddie Stroma was born, Frederick Sjostrom, in London, England on 8 January, 1987. Although he was born in London, he was educated at the boys-only boarding school Radley College and was the middle child of three with an older sister and a younger brother. According to the man himself, "I'm the crazy one in the family. When I was young, I never really thought I would go into acting. At that age I wanted to be a ninja, but the dream to be an actor started when I was sixteen."

His aspiration came true when he was accepted into the highly prestigious National Youth Theater, which has led to five prominent acting roles (Mayo, Casualty, The Last Flight to Kuwait, Lady Godiva and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince).

Besides his polite manners, athleticism and charming good looks, Stroma also has an academic streak, studying for a degree in Neuroscience before taking up acting full time. After taking a year long break from his studies to film, Stroma went back to school to finish his degree as it "would have been a shame to just throw it away." He earned a second class neuroscience degree from the University College of London in June.

Freddie got his first leading role in Warner Bros. direct to DVD film A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song to be release on September 6th 2011.

And Freddie also was casted in The Philosophers reuniting him with his Harry Potter co-star Bonnie Wright.

He had a minor role in Pitch Perfect, a 2012 comedy about the world of collegiate a cappella. He played a radio station manager at the local college radio station.

In 2014, he was cast in the role of Jack in the psychological thriller After the Dark, which was formerly known as The Philosophers, with his former Harry Potter co-star Bonnie Wright. The film was shot on location in Jakarta.

In June 2015, Stroma was one of the romantic interests, Adam Cromwell, in the Lifetime dramedy UnREAL. He plays British bachelor who is competing on a fictionalized The Bachelor-type reality show called Everlasting. Stroma's character is manipulated as much as the women who are vying for his attention in the show that is a behind-the-scenes view of reality dating shows.

UnREAL was picked up for a second season but Stroma had said that he does not think his character will be back, though during a Paley Center panel on UnREAL he said that he is hopeful as the show will continue to feature Everlasting. After the season 1 finale, Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, one of the co-creators of UnREAL, confirmed that Stroma would be back in season 2.

Stroma had a role in the Michael Bay film, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016), playing Yale University graduate student Brit Vayner, an undercover CIA officer in Libya.

In 2016 he will join the HBO series Game of Thrones in Season 6 as Dickon Tarly, the brother of Samwell Tarly.
