Austin Haynes (14) can be seen in Somewhere Boy from Sunday 16th October as Young Danny. This TV series is already tipped as one of the biggest dramas of the year.
Somewhere Boy is the intriguing story of Danny, who has spent his entire life in isolation at a remote house with his father Steve. At 18 Danny discovers that he’s been living a lie and the outside world is not full of murderous monsters, as he’s been led to believe.
It emerges that Steve absconded with Danny when he was a baby after his mum was killed in a car crash in a warped bid to keep his son safe. As sheltered Danny becomes older, he begins to question their life, leading to revelations, which may make or break him as he faces the real world.
Lewis Gribben stars as Danny, Austin Haynes as Young Danny, Rory Keenan plays Danny’s dad Steve, Lisa McGrillis plays Sue (Steve’s sister and Danny’s aunt) and Samuel Bottomley stars as Aaron, Danny’s cousin and Sue’s son.
Produced by Clerkenwell Films, the company that produced Channel 4’s The End Of The F***ing World and Misfits.
Austin filmed in London and Wales last summer. He is such a hard-working and talented young actor: we can’t wait to see him in the series on Channel 4, Sunday 16th October 2022.
