Jamie Bell          

Actor Known for "Jumper," "Jane Eyre" & "The Fantastic Four"

Andrew James Matfin 'Jamie' Bell is an English actor. He was educated at Northfield School and took performing arts classes at his local branch of Stagecoach Theatre School. Bell first got involved with dance, which his mother, grandmother and aunt took part in, at his sister's classes. He would copy what they were doing outside the class until, at the age of six, he was asked to join the lesson. This prepared him for his first role that thrust him into mainstream success and kick-started his acting career.

At the age of 14, Bell won the lead part in 'Billy Elliot' over 2,000 boys who auditioned, in 2000. Through this role, Bell won the hearts of moviegoers with and won a number of awards including Best Newcomer (2000) and Best Male Performance (2001) at the Baftas. Following this hit film, Bell has gone on to enjoy a lucrative acting career with parts in 'Nicholas Nickelby' (2002), 'Dear Wendy' (2004), 'The Chumscrubber' (2004) and 'King Kong' in 2005.

In 2005, Bell started a relationship with US actress Evan Rachel Wood after they starred in Green Day's video for 'When September Ends'. The highly private couple ended their relationship in 2006 but rekindled their romance five years later and were married in 2012. They had a son in 2013 but divorced in 2014.

After meeting Wood, Bell forged a career in Hollywood films with the first being the Clint Eastwood-directed war drama 'Flags of our Fathers' in 2006, mystery romance 'Hallam Foe' in 2007 and adventure sci-fi flick 'Jumper' in 2008. He also appeared in 'Defiance' with Daniel Craig in 2008 before taking a break until 2011 when he starred in Roman drama 'The Eagle', 'Retreat' and 'Jane Eyre'. He also voiced the lead part in 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn'.

In 2012, Bell featured in Hollywood film 'Man On A Ledge' as well as the comedy crime drama 'Filth.' He then filmed thriller 'Snowpiercer' and 'Nymphomaniac' in 2013. Most recently, he starred in Marvel's 2015 film, 'The Fantastic Four,' as Ben Grimmm/Thing.
