Billy Elliot isn’t a little boy with an incredible love of dance anymore.
Billy Elliot was played by a small child called Jamie Bell who had the face of a seven-year-old, despite being 14 when the film was released.
Bell is now 29. Which makes us feel approximately one billion years old.
Here’s a comparison shot, if you’re at all interested.
Turns out Bell is still acting. If you think about it really hard, you’ve probably seen him in a few movies since. He was in a movie called Jumper, he did the voice of Tin Tin and he’s about to star in the new Fantastic Four.
He’s also a father. And a former husband. Jamie and his Green Day video co-star Evan Rachel Wood were married from 2012-2014 and had a son in 2013. They divorced in 2014 and as far as our Google stalking tells us, Jamie’s pretty single right now.
