Toby Regbo plays a teenage Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies.
Toby Regbo (born 18 October 1991) is an English actor who has appeared in film, television and theatre.
 Early life
Regbo started his acting career with a small role in 2006 BBC television film Sharpe's Challenge. In 2007, he played American teen spy Chad Turner in an episode of CBBC children's spy-fi adventure series M.I. High.
 Critical reception
 Mr. Nobody
Film critic Eric Lavallée listed Regbo as one of his "Top 10 New Faces & Voices" of 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. He notes that "newbie Toby Regbo might easily be Mr.Nobody's most "alive" character. Playing Nemo at age 16, the actor is mostly paired with Juno Temple - their unique love story is the film's heart pumping portions and plays a lot better than the artery clogging other brushes of romance." Variety's Boyd van Hoeij praises Regbo and Temple as well, saying "Regbo, as the teenage Nemo, and Juno Temple, as the teenage Anna, are impressive, bringing the hormonal battles of adolescence vividly to life".
 Tusk Tusk
His portrayal of Eliot in Tusk Tusk received praise from a broad spectrum of theatre critics. Michael Billington from The Guardian called him an "astonishing actor". Robert Tanitch from Morning Star praised both his and co-star Bel Powley's "impressive performances" and predicted that "Tusk Tusk should, all things being equal, play to full houses because of them". Matt Wolf, writing for The New York Times, was also very complimentary about the pair, concluding: "... these newfound talents inhabit every mercurial point on a spectrum that makes them one another's protectors and their destroyers, enemies and allies. Will you be more shaken by Ms. Powley ..., or Mr. Regbo, whose face is chillingly capable of shutting down? It's difficult to say, though one thing is clear: Tusk Tusk is beyond tears in a production beyond praise."
