Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Jacob Lofland

Date of Birth: July 30, 1996

Jacob Lofland is a young American actor who has quickly made a name for himself in Hollywood with roles in major movies such as Mud (2012), Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) and Free State of Jones (2016).

Jacob was born in Briggsville, Arkansas. Of growing up in a small town, the actor told Interview Magazine, "My friends and I would mainly ride around, drive through mud and stuff. Basically just everything you think a country kid does, that's what we did."

He used this rough-and-tumble upbringing to his advantage when he came across a casting notice for Jeff Nichol's 2012 flick Mud . The role, a cycling and boating country kid from Arkansas named Neckbone, was a near-perfect fit for the newcomer. At just 15, Jacob earned the role, starring alongside Matthew McConaughey, Tye Sheridan, Sam Shepard and Reese Witherspoon.

For his work in Mud , Jacob was nominated for a Critic's Choice Award for Best Young Actor and shared a Robert Altman Award for Best Ensemble at the Independent Spirit Awards.

Jacob followed this up with high-profile roles in the drama Little Accidents (2014), the teen sci-fi sequel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015), and the award-winning FX series Justified.

The rising star once again acted opposite Matthew McConaughey in the 2016 historical biopic Free State of Jones . This was followed by a solo lead role in the thriller North (2016), as well as a part in the action epic Transformers: The Last Knight (2017).
