Favorite Quotes from Will Poulter

“It’s difficult to tell whether people are looking at you because they recognize you from your work, or whether it’s just because you’re six foot three and have the eyebrows of Satan.” – Will Poulter
“I wasn’t really happy in school and didn’t really have anything else going for me; I wasn’t really good at anything. The drama was at least something I loved and was really passionate about.” – Will Poulter
“I love the process of auditioning and having the chance to play a million different characters in one week – it’s great.” – Will Poulter
“Kissing scenes are never romantic or sexy, they’re actually super technical, like, “Move your head, you’re blocking her light,” or, “Stop looking like an idiot when you kiss her.” You do it again and again because of the camera angles and takes and whatnot. So by the end of it, it’s not even kissing. All the anything is totally drained out of it.” – Will Poulter

Early life

William Jack Poulter was born on 28 January 1993, in Hammersmith, London, England, the son of Caroline (née Barrah), a former nurse, and Neil Poulter, a distinguished physician and Professor of Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine at Imperial College London. His mother was raised in Kenya. He was a pupil at Harrodian School, whose well-known acting graduates include George MacKay, Robert Pattinson and Jack Whitehall. However, he struggled in school due to dyslexia and developmental coordination disorder, telling The Independent in 2013, "It felt like it didn't matter how hard I tried, I wasn't getting anywhere. That's the most demoralising thing, as a kid. And to find something like drama, which I loved so much… it gave me a sense of purpose." Poulter is an avid fan of Arsenal F.C.

Career

Poulter played various acting roles before landing the role of Lee Carter in the 2007 movie Son of Rambow, which was released to positive reviews, and praise for the performances of Poulter and his co-star Bill Milner. He also performed with other young comedic actors in School of Comedy, which aired its pilot on Channel 4's Comedy Lab on 21 August 2008. School of Comedy was then commissioned for a full series by Channel 4, which began airing on 2 October 2009. The programme finished after a second series.

Poulter began filming a small British independent film called Wild Bill, directed by Dexter Fletcher, at the end of 2010. It centres around Bill Hayward, played by Charlie Creed-Miles, who, on parole after spending eight years in prison, finds his two sons, Dean (Poulter) and Jimmy (Sammy Williams), living alone and abandoned by their mother.

In 2013, he played Kenny in We're the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. While the film opened to mixed reviews, the performances of the cast were well received, especially that of Poulter, who found mainstream recognition with his showy, comedic work in the film. He also appeared as a caretaker in the music video for Rizzle Kicks' song "Skip to the Good Bit". Though he loved the script and auditioned for the role of Augustus Waters, he was denied the part in The Fault in Our Stars.

In 2018, Poulter reprised his role as Gally in Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third and final installment of the Maze Runner film series. Later that year, he starred in the film The Little Stranger as Roderick "Roddy" Ayres, a facially disfigured, haunted war veteran, and as game developer Colin Ritman in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, a standalone interactive film of the Black Mirror television series.
