The 19 year-old actor was chosen as Vogue.Com’s 2012 Faces to Watch. What a beautiful face that is! It is easy to fall in love with a Romeo that looks like Douglas Booth.
In the January 2012 Vogue interview, he talked about falling in love at a young age.
“I fell in love at 14 and I remember that mad, tense feeling and all the mad things you do for the person – all those extremes and all the stuff you don’t mind putting up with,” Booth told us. “I’m not with that person anymore, but I fell in love again and it was even more powerful, maybe deeper.”
He appeared in the 2009 Fall/Winter Burberry campaign with Emma Watson. He portrayed Boy George in the 2010 TV Movie, Worried About the Boy. In 2011, he played the orphaned Pip in the BBC production of Great Expectations. He will also appear as Kevin in the upcoming Miley Cyrus film, LOL.
He will be playing Romeo in the much anticipated new version of William Shakespere’s Romeo and Juliet set to come out in 2013. Hailee Steinfield also stars as Juliet and Ed Westwick as Tybalt. It was recently announced that Booth was cast as Shem in the Darren Aronofsky Bibical Epic, Noah. Russell Crowe will star as Noah, Emma Watson as Ila, Jennifer Connelly as Naameh and Logan Lerman as Ham.
