Description
  • Frank Dillane is an actor.
  • Frank Dillane is a British actor. He spent part of his childhood in Brixton before moving to Forest Row, East Sussex, where he grew up in a creative environment: his mother manages a theatre company called Barebones Project while his father Stephen Dillane has played in numerous movies and TV series and was awarded a BAFTA TV Award for Best Actor on Television in 2009. Frank Dillane made his film debut at his side as an extra in Welcome to Sarajevo when he was six. He became more widely known in 2009 when he was chosen to play Tom Riddle Junior in Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince. Having passed his A-level examinations, Frank Dillane was accepted to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Acting. In spite of the school rules specifying that actors are not permitted to accept professional acting work for the duration of the course, Frank was allowed to play James Papadopoulos in independent movie Papadopoulos & Sons since it was filmed during summer holidays in 2011. After he was cast, his father decided to rearrange his filming schedule to play Harry Papadopoulos at his side.
