Australian actor, Jacob Elordi got his big break in 2018, thanks to his role as Noah Flynn in The Kissing Booth. The fact that he was dating his co-star Joey King in real life sparked a huge fan interest in the film which became a surprise hit. The Aussie hunk has been acting since he was 17 years old, however, none of his roles had given him the kind of recognition The Kissing Booth did.
The Netflix original movie has sure opened the doors to the next phase of his career as he has racked up many other gigs since the film’s May 2018 release. Here is what you need to know about him.
Jacob Elordi’s Bio, Age
Jacob Elordi is Australian and his accent says it all. He was born on the 26th of June 1997 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia where he was raised by his parents who still live in Brisbane. Elordi attended St Joseph’s Nudgee College, a private Catholic day and boarding school for boys in Brisbane.
It was while in school that Elordi developed an interest in drama. Like most successful actors today, he began acting in short films. His first ever acting gig was on stage in Seussical: The Musical as The Cat In The Hat. He then acted in short films; Carpe Liam (2015) and Max & Iosefa (2016). He also wrote the latter.
Up next, Jacob Elordi got an uncredited role, playing St. Martins Marine, the tall guy in the red jacket in a scene in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was his biggest film role until The Kissing Booth became an overnight success.
In 2017, Elordi played the role of Rooster in Swinging Safari, an Australian comedy-drama film. He then booked the role to play Noah Flynn in The Kissing Both. Filming was done in South Africa after which it was released to a huge success.
The film’s success has been pivotal in Elordi’s career. He had barely 15,000 followers on Instagram before the film’s release and post-release, it skyrocketed to 4.4 million. Jacob Elordi has become well-known not only in Australia but in America.
Post-Kissing Booth, he has received parts in The Mortuary Collection (2018) a horror film and 2 Hearts which was filmed in Vancouver, Canada. He also has a part in the new HBO series Euphoria which stars Zendaya.
Elordi, no doubt, showed a lot of professionalism with his part in the Kissing Booth. He had to learn how to drive a bike just for the role. He’d later fall in love with bikes and is now a huge fan. Elordi now lives in Los Angeles, California.
Jacob Elordi’s relationship with Joey King is no doubt the major talking point as far as The Kissing Booth is concerned. The PDAs they’ve shared with fans online makes the film very believable. Elordi and King met on the set of the film in 2017. They started out as friends before realizing that there was a chance to have something more between them. Having to be on set almost every day for two-months brought them even closer and soon, they started a romantic relationship.
Frequently, the couple takes turns to visit their respective social media pages to post mushy snaps of themselves. In one occasion, Elordi received a surprise invitation from Joey while he was filming in Vancouver. She recorded his reaction to the pleasure of fans.
After the film had been released, the couple slowed down on the frequency of posts they put out on social media. Joey told the Los Angeles Times that she feels like giving so much away on their relationship because people are obsessed with it is “scary.”
The LA-born Joey King had long been acting before her beau. Some of her best-known films include Ramona and Beezus, Oz the Great and Powerful, and White House Down. She was born on July 30, 1999.
