Fionn
Whitehead

Fionn stars as the lead role of Tommy in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk and the young lead in the feature The Children Act opposite Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci.

Fionn is a member of the National Youth Theatre and is one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2016.



There’s a naturalness and a genuineness to the way Fionn performs that’s extraordinary.

The film is also notable for showcasing another superb performance, by up-and-coming actor Fionn Whitehead.

Stephen Farber
Hollywood Reporter on The Children Act

Whitehead, an innately talented actor, conveys the febrile anxiety of a bright boy who is aflame with noble desires.

Screen International on The Children Act

Whitehead is clearly quite the discovery, a young actor with desperate eyes and an early ability to access so many levels.

Peter Debruge
Variety on The Children Act

Fionn Whitehead is excellent as the never-named anti-hero known only as HIM.
