Asa Butterfield stars in Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" as the title character Hugo Cabret.

Asa Butterfield has been a professional actor since he was eight years old. He lives in London with his brother, Morgan, and his baby sister, Loxie.

After playing small roles in the British movie "Son of Rambow" and the British television drama "After Thomas," Butterfield was offered the lead in Mark Herman's "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas," alongside Vera Farmiga, David Thewlis and Rupert Friend. It was

this role that earned him a nomination for Most Promising Newcomer at the British Independent Film Awards.

Since then, Butterfield has been in demand for both film and television work including "Nanny McPhee Returns," opposite Emma Thompson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ralph Fiennes, the recent production of "The Wolfman," with Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins, and a guest lead in the BBC television production "Ashes to Ashes." Butterfield is also regularly asked to reprise his mysterious interpretation of the character Mordred in the popular BBC series "Merlin."

Although busy with acting and his regular training at Young Actors Theatre in London, Butterfield makes a point of not letting work dominate his life. He keeps his feet on the ground, enjoying school, friends, piano, squash and his cats (that's "squash and," not "squashing"). He is just as happy reading a book as playing computer games too, a good book by Darren Shan or Anthony Horowitz rarely lasting more than a week.
