The first thing that strikes you about Xavier Atkins, the British teenager who this year appeared alongside Sam Neill, Lena Headey and Michael Sheen in action-fantasy The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, is a wry humour and intelligence that belies his youthful appearance. Handpicked by the casting director of Game of Thrones when aged ten, Atkins beat more than 5,000 other young hopefuls for the role of Bran Stark before going head-to-head with Isaac Hempstead-Wright. Despite experiencing disappointment at eventually losing out to his fellow pre-teen, Atkins was encouraged to pursue the profession thanks to an innate ability to perform and a steely but understated self-confidence.

Child 44: Xavier Atkins, Tom Hardy ..

It’s 1885, and genteel Mr. Mundi (Ioan Gruffudd) and Mrs. Mundi (Keeley Hawes) are visiting London with their offspring — teenage son Mariah (Aneurin Barnard) and his younger brother, Felix (Xavier Atkins) — when a brief, jarring visit from Dad’s old friend, Capt. Charity (Michael Sheen), alerts them that a map of legendary import has been stolen. Apparently the adults are all involved in a secret bureau that protects “powerful relics” from falling into the wrong hands. Moments later the parents have been kidnapped, and soon Felix is spirited away, too, Charity rescuing the older boy in the nick of time. He packs Mariah off to a North Sea island whose resort hotel has recently been bought by the sinister Otto Luger (Sam Neill) in partnership with dragon lady Monica (Lena Headey).
