Regarding his educational background, Ellar was mostly homeschooled, except when he attended a high school for three years. He eventually obtained his General Education Development (GED) certificate.
Rise to Prominence – Coming of Age, “Boyhood”
Ellar developed his love for acting very early, since he was chosen to play Mason Evans Jr. at the age of six by the filmmaker Richard Linklater, who had an idea to make a film which would show a boy growing up and coming of age. The filming started in May of the following year, and lasted until August of 2013. So, this epic drama, entitled “Boyhood”, was finally released in 2014, when Ellar was 19 years old.
It received positive reviews, and the role led him to be nominated for various awards and even win the 2014 Boston Society of Film Critics Award for Best Cast and 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Young Performer.

Side by side with filming “Boyhood”, Ellar Coltrane continued to search for new projects, so he officially made his debut film appearance in the role of Young Earl Crest in the 2002 comedy crime film “Lone Star State Of Mind”.
Three years later, he starred as Thomas Chaney, Jr. in the drama thriller “Faith & Bullets”, which was followed by his portrayal of Jay Anderson in another Richard Linklater’s film, entitled “Fast Food Nation” (2006), starring alongside Ethan Hawke, Luis Guzmán and Bruce Willis. Ellar’s next role came in 2009, when he featured as Young Tyler in the horror “Hallettsville”.
In 2016, Ellar landed the role of Will in Vikram Gandhi’s drama film “Barry”, about the student life of former US President Barack Obama.
In the following year he was quite busy, since he starred as Shane McAvoy in the drama “The Last Movie Star”, directed by Adam Rifkin, played Mercer Regalado in the techno-thriller “The Circle”, next to Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, and portrayed Victor in the action thriller “Blood Money”. In 2018, he filmed the short drama “Bodies Of Water” and the adventure drama “The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot”, directed by Robert D. Krzykowski. Most recently, Ellar featured as Jameson Ford in Joseph Cross’ coming-of-age romantic comedy film “Summer Night” (2019).

I draw and paint and don't know how to play the banjo, but I do play the banjo. I want to get back to it. It just depends on who approaches me, or who I approach. I want to express sincerity in whatever form.|
