Joe Alwyn (Left) as Gideon Brodess

Joe Alwyn made his acting debut in the title role in the 2016 war drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from Oscar®-winning director Ang Lee. Also starring Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin and Kristen Stewart, the film followed 19-year-old Billy Lynn as he is brought home for a victory tour after a harrowing battle in Iraq. 

In 2018, Alwyn starred in Operation Finale as Klaus Eichmann alongside Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley. Directed by Chris Weitz and written by Matthew Orton, the film takes place 15 years after World War II, when a team of secret agents are brought together to track down Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of the Holocaust. He also appeared in Boy Erased from Joel Edgerton, which follows the son of a Baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program. 

Additionally, Alwyn starred in Yorgos Lanthimos’ critically-acclaimed film The Favourite, starring opposite Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Coleman. The film received the Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Venice International Film Festival, was selected as the opening film at the 2018 New York Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Picture. In Mary Queen of Scots, he appeared opposite Margot Robbie in the role of Robert Dudley, Queen Elizabeth’s counselor and lover. 

In 2017, Alwyn appeared in Ritesh Batra’s BBC Films movie “The Sense of an Ending.” Based on a book by the same name, the film follows Tony Webster who is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his current situation in life. He can be seen in an adaptation of “A Christmas Carol,” a BBC and FX production, to release on Christmas 2019. 

Alwyn studied English and drama at Bristol University and then at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. He was named one of the 2015 Screen International Stars of Tomorrow, and he also was also selected as the face of the SS18 Prada campaign.

“My illustration tribute of #Harriet Tubman reflects the strength, courage and dedication to the freedom of not only herself but hundreds of others…The faces represent the enslaved that she freed as well as the feeling of bond and kinship that I have always shared with her through my heritage.She was a beacon of light that still shines and her legacy is one that should be celebrated. That is why I am excited to see the @HarrietFilm and seeing @cynthiaerivo depict the struggle, resilience and heroism of Harriet Tubman on the big screen.”🎨: @bpeppersart#HarrietInspires

#Repost @instagram: It’s #GoldenGlobes weekend and we are spending the day with first-time nominee Cynthia Erivo (@cynthiaerivo), who’s portrayal of Harriet Tubman in the new film “Harriet” has earned her not one, but two nominations. But the actress and singer-songwriter is a seasoned pro when it comes to playing strong female leads — from Broadway to film and now television, she is on an unstoppable roll. 🎭🎬📺⁣⁣⁣“Because of all the characters I’ve played — Celie, Harriet and now Aretha — I have been lucky enough to learn about resilience and the power of the woman and the strength within. And to learn about the fact that I’m enough, and you’re enough.” 💕✨⁣⁣⁣Head over to our story to see what the actress is up to before the @goldenglobes ... and trust us, you’ll want to listen with sound on. 🔉🎶😉
