Felix Jamieson is a 16 year-old upcoming British actor who caught the public’s attention as a child actor in the popular, award-winning HBO series, Game of Thrones.
Since his appearance in the thrilling series, Felix Jamieson has also gone on to feature in a good number of equally thrilling series and his acting star is on the rise. Here’s everything you need to know about the Game of Thrones star.
How Old is Felix Jamieson and Where was He Born?
Felix Jamieson was born on August 28, 2007, in England, United Kingdom. His birth sign is Virgo and he belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group. He is a British citizen.
Details of his family background are currently unavailable to the public, including the identity of his parents, where they are, and what they do for a living. There is also no clue as to whether Felix has any living siblings, and if he did, who they are, and where they are at the moment.
At 16 years old, Jamieson is one of the youngest actors in the world at the moment and it is a profession the young British actor has been in for almost all his existence. For as long as anyone can remember, Jamieson has been an actor and it is a profession that has overshadowed his formal education pursuits.
The young actor, though, knows how important his education is and appears to have seamlessly incorporated that into his recently tight schedule, but information on that aspect of his life is limited to the fact that he is most likely a student at one of the schools in England.
He was Cast as The Winter Town Boy in Game of Thrones
Felix Jamieson actually became known to the public when he was given a relatively obscure role in the popular, award-winning HBO series, Game of Thrones. This one-episode role of the Winter Town Boy came in 2019. Jamieson was privileged to share the big screen with already well-established stars who had also come to the limelight as a result of the show’s popularity.
Sharing a set with popular GoT legends like Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington, Sophie Turner, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau and several other big names can be a daunting task for anyone let alone a then 12-year-old kid like Felix Jamieson but his performance measured up to the standard required in spite of the fact that it was just an episode.
If anyone wondered why his performance was that good, the answer simply lay in the fact that Felix’s appearance on Game of Thrones, though high profile, was not his first rodeo as an actor. He must have surely approached the project like he had a good number of film projects he had been in since he started out at the very young age of 5.
His first official film credit came a year before his appearance on Game of Thrones when he was cast as Rob White in the 2018 short movie titled The Ghost. Following his cameo on GoT, he also got the role of Young Anthony in one episode of Summer of Rockets (2019).
It suddenly seemed as if every producer and director wanted to give movie lovers and fans a glimpse of Felix in their projects because, in one year, the young British actor appeared in one episode each of three good series including playing the role of Alexander in one episode of Catherine The Great.
Felix Jamieson’s work on Game of Thrones helped to adequately prepare him and served as the launching pad to what is shaping up to be a really impressive career as an actor. In fact, he is already one of the mainstays of one of the biggest series currently trending as he was contracted to play the role of Paul in the drama/fantasy/sci-fi series known as Raised by Wolves.
The show’s set is graced by popular and seasoned actors like Travis Fimmel, Abubakar Salim, and Amanda Collin but Felix Jamieson and his co-young star Winta McGrath managed to steal the show with performances that belie their youthful age. Felix Jamieson’s performance on The Ghost saw him nominated for the July Award for Best Actor in 2018. He then won the Golden Movie Award for Best U18 Actor and also the Platinum Award for Best U12 Actor, both for his performances in The Ghost.
Felix Jamieson was also nominated for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance In A TV Series – Supporting Teen Actor.

His body weight of 40 kg is also another statistic that is more likely than not to change as the years go by.
