Early life and education

Ed hasn’t talked much about his family, as he prefers to keep them away from the media’s attention – he hasn’t talked about having any siblings, which is why he is considered to be an only child.

Ed has been interested in many forms of art since he was very young. He had dreams of becoming an actor and a musician which eventually came true for him – he began taking acting classes when he was around 11 years old. He was somewhat popular during his high school years thanks to his looks, but it’s not known whether he dated any girls during those years of his life.

After he matriculated, he enrolled at the Byam Shaw School of Art and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art painting.

Career of an actor and a musician

Ed launched his career as a musician first, rather than an actor – his first extended play (EP) launched in 2004 under the Dented Records record label, and his first album entitled “The Eat Up” was released in 2007, and featured numerous popular rap artists such as Foreign Beggars, Asian Dub Foundation, Plan B, and Doc Brown among others. His next EP was “Pre-Emptive Nostalgia”, in a collaboration with “A State of Mind” music group. His last album was released in 2009 entitled “Scene Stealers”, made it in collaboration with the rapper Dr Syntax.

After that, Ed turned to his career of an actor. His first appearance was in a short film entitled “Michelle”, after which he landed his first main role in “III Manors” movie shot in 2012. Ed then went to play the role of Daario Naharis in the third season of the popular TV series “Game of Thrones” (GoT)– although he was replaced in the fourth season, the GoT series made him somewhat popular, and opened numerous doors for him. He won the lead role in “The Transporter: Refueled” replacing the popular actor Jason Statham, and he has also appeared in the popular “Deadpool” movie as Ajax, the main bad guy.

Ed made his directorial debut on 23 October 2015, with the “Gateway 6” science fiction thriller movie. He has also appeared in the “Darkness” psychological thriller film, and was supposed to star in the new “Hellboy” movie, but decided not to take the role.

Ed is currently working as a swimming teacher at the Greenwich Leisure Limited.

Love life and relationships

Ed is trying to keep his personal matters away from the media’s attention, and has shared very little about his love life with the public.

Ed was part of a gang when he was 16 years old, and the gang was sleeping with numerous girls – he has a son named Marley and the rumor has it that one of the girls who Ed slept with at that time gave birth to his son. Ed hasn’t talked about the mother of his child and therefore nothing about her can be said with certainty – during his time Ed was also once stabbed, at the age of 17.

He is a lover of animals and has been part of many projects related to an animal shelter close to his home – he grew up with a dog, but doesn’t have a pet today because he doesn’t have time to take care of it.
