English performer Bill Milner took his first screen bow as a child star when the producers of the offbeat comedy Son of Rambow (2007) cast the then-unknown as their lead actor. In the film, Milner played Will Proudfoot, a young man who unexpectedly befriends the school bully and then teams up with him to make a low-budget movie paying homage to Stallone's John Rambo.
