Arms dealer: we’d like an invite to Theo’s gun show!

Theodore Peter James Kinnaird Taptiklis is the latest British stud taking on Hollywood in new sci-fi movie saga Divergent. You might recognise the brooding hunk from his roles in The Inbetweeners Movie (he played the obnoxious club rep) and Downton Abbey, but here’s a few facts about him you need to know…

Age: 29

Birthplace: Oxford, England

The music man: Theo was the lead singer and guitarist of a band called Shere Khan, which broke up after he relocated full-time to Los Angeles in 2012. He also plays the harmonica, piano and beatboxes.

Lacklustre linguist: Theo’s grandfather is Greek, his mother is Scottish and his father is from New Zealand, and he can speak a bit of Russian.

Dead-end job: Before finding work as an actor, Theo had a job with the UK’s National Health Service which involved going to the homes of the recently deceased and cleaning up bodily fluids. Ew!

Smooth moves: As well as fancying himself as a bit of a dancer in nightclubs (he can moonwalk just like Michael Jackson), Theo is trained in ballet, tap and jazz like the legendary Fred Astaire. 

INFO: Divergent is out across UAE cinemas now
