ENDER'S GAME

As a young actor, ASA BUTTERFIELD (Ender Wiggin) has endeared audiences and garnered the attention of critics with his brilliant and captivating performances on screen.

Butterfield most recently wrapped production on X plus Y starring as a mathematical genius who is grappling with the sudden death of his father. The film, inspired by director Morgan Matthews' BAFTA nominated documentary Beautiful Young Minds, charts the incredible journey of the brightest young brains of Britain. Rafe Spall and Sally Hawkins also star.

The actor was last on screen starring as the title role in Martin Scorsese's Hugo, which earned him a Critics Choice Award nomination for Best Young Actor and was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Butterfield garnered critical acclaim for his starring role in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas opposite Vera Farmiga and David Thewlis, for which he received a nomination for "Most Promising Newcomer" from the British Independent Film Awards and "Young British Performer of the Year" from the London Critics Circle Film Awards. His previous film credits include Son of Rambow, The Wolfman, and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. His television credits include a recurring role on the BBC series "Merlin."

Earlier this year, Butterfield, along with his father and brother, launched a driving game app for the iPad titled, "Racing Blind." The app is uniquely played with your eyes closed and is based on a pen and paper game they invented to pass the hours while on the set of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
