For instance, he is credited for well over a hundred roles so far and it cut across films, TV, theater, radio/audio drama, as well as audiobook narration.

Stevens has starred in many top-grossing projects such as the British historical drama TV series Downton Abbey (which aired concurrently on ITV in the UK and on PBS in the USA) between 2010 and 2012. At the time of filing this report, Stevens has four upcoming movie projects: one is being filmed, while three are at the post-production stage.

What is more? What has been told above about Dan Stevens is but the tip of the iceberg. So, read on for more.

Who is Dan Stevens and How Old is He?

The superstar was born as Daniel Jonathan Stevens on October 10, 1982, in the Borough of Croydon in South London. Stevens lost his biological parents quite early and so, he was adopted at the age of 7 days (yes, days) by parents who lived in Wales at the time. He was raised among the Welsh highlands together with a younger brother whose name we have not been able to ascertain.

By Stevens’ own admission, he was very rebellious as a child. Yet, he was so good at his classwork that he landed a scholarship as a boarder at Trowbridge School in Kent County, South East England. As it turned out, Trowbridge became the greatest factor in creating the great actor we know today as Dan Stevens. The school had a thriving theater group that did so well that Stevens became interested in becoming a member. Under the tutelage of his then English teacher Jonathan Smith, who eventually became famous as a novelist and playwright, Stevens and his colleagues were well nurtured in the art. In one memorable case during a high school production of the Shakespearean play Macbeth, it was Stevens who won the titular role during the audition.

As this interest burgeoned, Dan Stevens began to seek other ways to hone his acting skills. Indeed, the interest became so strong that, while other children would spend the summer holidays in activities that were more typically considered fun, Stevens would be training with The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, a London-based charity committed to the development of young people by means of creative arts. Apart from Trowbridge, The National Youth Theater is another great influence that propelled Stevens to the career heights at which he soars today.

Then, to enable him to go even more professional in his chosen career, Stevens enrolled at Emmanuel College, the University of Cambridge where he studied English Literature with a bias for the drama genre. While at Cambridge, Stevens was involved with Cambridge University Footlights Dramatic Club (otherwise known as Floodlights). As a member of Floodlights, Stevens came in contact with a number of members who went ahead to become big names in the arts such as the BAFTA-winning writer Stefan Golaszewski and the British comedian Mark Andrew Watson. It is worthy of note that while at Cambridge, Stevens repeated his titular role in a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth by Marlowe Society of which Stevens was also a member.
