The 14-year-old from Lower Hutt stole the show in the film Hunt for the Wilderpeople as the delinquent Ricky who goes bush to escape child services with Hector played by Sam Neill.

Director Taika Waititi cast the teen as his lead after seeing him in Australian family drama Paper Planes.

Earlier this month UK film magazine Empire named Hunt for the Wilderpeople as the best film of 2016.
