Biography by Nathan Southern

British actor Will Poulter debuted onscreen as a child star, with the lead in the quirky, off-center comedy Son of Rambow. In that film, Poulter plays Will Proudfoot, a young Britisher who befriends the class bully -- and then teams up with the lad to make a film that will emulate Stallone's Rambo character.
