Louis Partridge continues to advance in his career. With more and more projects on his hands, the young British actor of just 18 years (soon 19) has proven to have an innate talent for acting that has led him to get roles of great importance despite his short experience in the profession.
Pistols will be released soon (May 31), a biographical miniseries written by Craig Pearce and directed by Danny Boyle about the legendary punk band Sex Pistols. The series will be based on guitarist Steve Jones‘ memoir Lonely Boy: Tales From a Sex Pistol. Of the four members of the band, Louis Partridge plays Sid Vicious (whose real name was Simon John Ritchie) who was considered one of the most important figures of punk and, along with his band, one of the pioneers of this style of rock. The miniseries will tell us how this new genre revolutionized rock and roll and established itself as a new genre in less than three years and the role of the famous music band in all this musical historical context.
This is not the first time that Louis Partridge has had a leading role in a production that smells of success from afar. In fact, the actor has an extensive background in several sectors of acting despite his short time.
He had previously appeared in short films (Beneath Water and About a Dog) and in small guest roles in British series (Boomers). He also had a small role in Paddington 2 and a not so small one in the series Medici, in which he played Piero de Medici. But among all his previous works one stands out in particular, and is that the young actor rose to fame after his role as Lord Tewksbury in Enola Holmes (starring Millie Bobbie Brown) role which will repeat in Enola Holmes 2. Also last year he starred in The Lost Girls acting as Peter Pan.
To get into the skin of Sid Vicious, the actor had to prepare himself in a two-month band camp that included meeting Steve Jones, Glen Matlock and Paul Cook (the three still-living Sex Pistols partners). At this camp he learned to master the bass and Vicious‘ trademark accent, although he also had to get used to wearing false teeth just like the late bassist.
Louis Partridge has demonstrated his attractiveness, sympathy and great talent and despite being so young, he is an intelligent boy, with great aspirations and healthy ambition to succeed in the world of cinema. He takes all his jobs very seriously, because in addition to being an actor he is also a model. He has worked with major international brands, starred on the covers of magazines like Vogue and Mood and has also participated in Luxx Magazine promoting luxury products.
In short, Louis Partridge aims to great projects and based on the effort and dedication he shows with everything he does, everything points to the fact that in a short time he will be one of the most recognized actors in the world.
