BASILDON boy Hayden Keeler-Stone has landed a big supporting role in new Tim Burton film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
The upcoming actor, whose previous TV credit is Channel 4’s Man Down with Greg Davies – is relatively unknown, however his character Horace Somnussun will surely catapult him into the big time.
Tim Burton’s imagining of best-selling book Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, follows a group of children with ‘peculiarities’ such as invisibility, breathing underwater and in one case, teeth at the back of their head. Their secret island is under threat and it’s up to Eva Green’s Miss Peregrine and the children to stop it. It’s a time bending, dark magical fantasy which is already on track to top box office records with its release last week.
Hayden’s character Horace Somnussun is a character directly out of the books; he has prophetic dreams which enable him to see into people’s futures. Throughout the story he discovers his bravery and learns to be more himself.
Hayden’s taken on a big character in what is his first big screen role, the teen; who went to Gable Hill School in Essex, is likely to land other parts as a result of Miss Peregrine, which is climbing up the box office charts.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is out in cinemas now.
