Prior to that, however, the 19-year-old English actor has worked on several movies and television shows, including his very first acting credit — ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’, which is a docudrama in 2013.


Connor did a small cameo in the biographical film, and the revamped version of it was aired last week on BBC Four. A lot of fans were able to spot the actor in ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’, where he played the role of a young boy named Charlie.

At the time, the ‘Heartstopper’ star was only 8 years old, and he looks so adorable in the ‘Doctor Who’ biopic. According to PinkNews, ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ “was released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who'”, and it “is a dramatized version of how the beloved British sci-fi series came to be.”
