ALEX ROE-BROWN played an evil 'demon posessed' child in the 2000 movie 'The calling'.



ALEX was much acclaimed for his part in the movie, but, for some extra-ordinary reason, has not appeared in any other major roles.
Christopher Null (movie critic) wrote - "Roe-Brown is so convincing that I wouldn't let my kids play with him for fear of having their hearts ripped out or worse."
Watch out for this fine young English actor.

He's probably a nice kid in reality ... probably ...

EUGENE SIMON is a fine young English actor who has yet to make a name for himself outside of support roles on kids TV. His best character to date is that of Eddie, a manipulating, troublesome, yet ultra intelligent child in the series 'Noah and Saskia'.

 


He is a 'Simpsons' fan, but also likes cricket and playing on his computer. Another recent appearance has been in the BBC comedy 'My Dad's the Prime Minister'.
He's certainly worthy of greater roles.

UPDATE: Eugene can be seen in the BBC dramatisation of "My Family and Other Animals" (2005), in which he plays the lead role of the young Gerald Durral ... and yes girls, he does take his shirt off a lot.

Buy My Family and Other Animals from Amazon.co.uk

JAMES AUBREY played Ralph in the 1960's version of LORD OF THE FLIES. Neither he, or any of the other boys in the movie, had ever acted before. They were ordinary English schoolboys who were taken to a remote island to act out a classic tale of life, death and savagery.



James went on to become a professional actor, but he will always be remembered for his final scenes in Lord of the Flies as he flees half naked for his life amid fire and howling pursuers.
