During an interview with the Independent back in February 2016, the actor gushed about his family and their health care profession. Will’s father is a cardiology professor while his mother is a nurse; as is his sister.
They all do far more important jobs than me and get a lot less attention and reward for it. Not that I could follow in their footsteps even if I wanted to – I didn’t exactly have a host of amazing science grades. I had nothing else going for me at school. I lived for my one lesson of drama a week.
The Black Mirror star who claims his fans recognize him more for his eyebrows than his work is no doubt as good a man as he is an actor.

Will studied drama at The Harrodian School. The actor’s drama teacher Laura Lawson encouraged him to give auditions for Son of Rambo (2007) by knocking on the class window during his English class and mouthing “auditions.” He later landed the role of Lee Carter in the film. Laura also played a big role in ensuring Will gets the part in School of Comedy (2009).
