ASA BUTTERFIELD (Norman) has been a professional actor since he was eight years old. He is now 13 and lives in London with his brother, Morgan, and his baby sister, Loxie.

After playing small roles in the British movie Son of Rambow and the British television drama After Thomas, he was offered the lead in Mark Herman's The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, alongside Vera Farmiga, David Thewlis and Rupert Friend. It was this role that earned him a nomination for Most Promising Newcomer (pipped by Dev Patel) at the British Independent Film Awards.

Since then, he has been in demand for both film and television work including the recent production of The Wolfman, with Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins, and a guest lead in the BBC television production Ashes to Ashes. He is also regularly asked to reprise his mysterious interpretation of the character Mordred in the popular BBC series Merlin.

Although busy with acting and his regular training at Young Actors Theatre in London, Butterfield makes a point of not letting work dominate his life. He keeps his feet on the ground, enjoying school, friends, piano, squash and his cats (that's "squash and,” not "squashing”). He is just as happy reading a book as playing computer games too, a good book by Darren Shan or Anthony Horowitz rarely lasting more than a week.

He is currently filming the lead role in Martin Scorsese's Hugo Cabret.
