RISING STAR
 

JACOB ELORDI
Actor

Jacob Elordi is an Australian actor, best known for his role of ‘Nate Jacobs’ in the critically acclaimed ‘HBO’ show, ‘Euphoria.’ Born and raised in Brisbane, Australia, Jacob was fascinated with the world of acting since childhood. He began acting during his school years and participated in many stage shows. One of his initial acting projects was a musical called ‘Seussical,’ where he played the role of ‘Cat in the Hat’ and sang for his part, too. As he grew up, his love for acting intensified. He was highly inspired by Heath Ledger, another Australian actor who had already made his mark in Hollywood. In 2017, he made his big-screen debut with a small, uncredited role in the Hollywood film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ The same year, he made his full-fledged acting debut with the comedy–drama film ‘Swinging Safari,’ which featured him as ‘Rooster.’ His life changed after he appeared as ‘Noah Flynn’ in the ‘Netflix’ romantic comedy ‘The Kissing Booth.’
