Born and raised in London, England, actor Joe Alwyn's first role came in 2011 when he played the role of Will in "A Higher Education," a short TV documentary. Alwyn, the son of a psychotherapist and a documentary filmmaker, was a student at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama when he read for director Ang Lee. His reading landed him the title role in "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" (2016), a movie that follows a squad of soldiers who are invited to the halftime show during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving game. The same year, Alwyn was cast in Ritesh Batra's "The Sense of an Ending" (2017).
