Two Orphan Vampires
|Date of birth:
Toby Wallace is a movie actor from London and was born in 1996. Initially making a name for himself with a recurring role in the series Neighbours (2012), he is an actor who broke through in 2013 with the role of Edmund opposite Bindi Irwin in Return to Nimís Island.
Toby emigrated to Australia at the age of nine. His professional stage debut was in Opera Australiaís production of Capuletti and in 2016 he performed in the Melbourne Theatre Companyís production of Skylight.
In his professional acting debut in Kriv Stendersí Lucky Country (2009 - aka Dark Frontier), Toby was honoured with an Australian Film Institute Award Nomination for Best Young Actor, at only 13-years of age.
Other credits include the young Michael Hutchence in the INXS miniseries Never Tear Us Apart playing INXS front man as a teen, Surviving Georgia, Itís A Date, The Man that Got Away, and several short films including The Last Time I Saw Richard, which was one of the Dendy Short Film Finalists in 2013.
In 2016, Toby played the lead in Nicholas Versoís coming-of-age feature Boys in the Trees, which premiered at both the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals.
Other film credits include the adaptation of Tim Wintonís book The Turning: Cockleshell (directed by Tony Ayres), Galore, from director Rhys Graham, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival.
Toby played the lead role of Kane in Stanís miniseries Romper Stomper (2018), in the role of the prodigious young journalist Erik Jensen, based on the hit film by writer-director Geoffrey Wright. He is also the lead in the feature Acute Misfortune (2018), from director Thomas M. Wright. When filming "Acute Misfortune" the director insisted stars Henshall and Wallace not meet during the two weeks of rehearsals and that their only interaction on set is their scenes together to help them react to events as they unfold sequentially.
Continuing an exciting run of projects, Toby stars in two short fiction films that are vying for an AACTA Award later this year: Nursery Rhyme, which won the Dendy Live Action Short Award for Best Director at the 2018 Sydney Film Festival, and Tangles and Knots.
