Date of Birth: December 21, 1987
Born in Chichester, England, Ed Speleers had only done amateur school plays before winning the title role in the major motion picture Eragon (2006).
The filmmakers had conducted a worldwide casting search, and out of 180,000 other applicants, Speleers was chosen just days before filming began.
Speleers, who comes from a broken home (his mother lives in Spain and his father in London), finished his schooling at Eastbourne College, a private boarding school in East Sussex in June 2006. He is looking forward to pursuing acting fulltime.
