He’s being hailed as one of this year’s biggest breakout stars. Meet the British hottie who plays the mysterious Four in sci-fi flick Divergent

- His full name is quite a mouthful – he was born Theodore Peter James Kinnaird Taptiklis. He uses Theo James as his stage name because it’s easier to spell.

- He’s not just a pretty face – the 29-year-old has a philosophy degree from the University of Nottingham.

- He’s single and a fantastic kisser according to Divergent co-star, Shailene Woodley (22). “He’s incredibly masculine with a beautiful soulful heart – and he was a great kisser.”

- Theo is just like his character Four. ‘‘Four likes to play outside the rules and has a strong sense of who he is. I’d like to think I have that in me too,’’ he says.

- He got into acting in 2007 when his girlfriend at the time auditioned for drama school and he decided to apply too for the hell of it. He was accepted, she wasn’t.

- If he wasn’t an actor he’d probably be a musician. He sings and plays the harmonica, saxophone, guitar and piano.

- He did various odd jobs before finding fame. He’s been a lifeguard, bartender and even cleaned up the bodily fluids after dead people were removed from homes. Ew!
