Johnny Flynn (right) as 'Mr. Knightley'

JOHNNY FLYNN (George Knightley) is a multi award-winning British actor and musician. Flynn has been shooting the lead role in Stardust where he plays a young David Bowie during his first visit to the U.S. in 1971, a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust. 

Filming is currently underway on the Netflix UK World War II feature The Dig. Flynn is joined by cast members Lily James, Ben Chaplin and Ralph Fiennes. He also will star in the WWII drama Operation Mincemeat where he will play Ian Fleming, alongside Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen and Penelope Wilton.

In 2017, Flynn starred alongside Jessie Buckley in the BAFTA nominated film Beast, in a plot that followed a game of cat and mouse between their two characters. The British psychological thriller received widespread critical acclaim, lauding Flynn’s breakthrough performance.  

Flynn was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2017 for his portrayal of young Albert Einstein in National Geographic’s anthology Genius. Other previous roles also include ITV drama Vanity Fair (2018) and the role of Félix Tholomyès in the 2018 BBC adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Miserables. From 2014-2018, Johnny played the lead recurring role of Dylan in the British romantic comedy Lovesick, which follows Dylan’s tribulations after an unfortunate medical diagnosis requires him to retrace his romantic life and notify all his former partners of his condition. 

He will soon be seen in the UK thriller film Cordelia opposite Antonia Campbell-Hughes, currently in post-production. 

Johnny’s notable stage credits include leading role in the London West End production of Sam Shepard’s True West (2018) opposite Kit Harington, as well as his performance in the revival of Hangmen (2018) on Broadway for which he won a Theatre World Award. In 2013, Flynn was nominated for the Ian Charleson Award for his performance in Twelfth Night at The Globe/Apollo Theatre and also won Best Supporting Actor at the 2012 Olivier Awards for his role in Jerusalem
