Theodore Chester biography
Theodore Chester was born in 1991 and lives in London with his parents
and two younger sisters. He has enjoyed acting ever since he was a
little boy, appearing in school plays, but his break into professional
acting came in 2002 when acting scouts, casting roles for
Peter Pan, came to his school. Aged eleven at the time
and attending the Harrodian School, a private London school, Theodore
and two of his classmates 'George MacKay' and Rupert Simonian
were plucked out of their geography lesson and invited to auditioning
workshops. All three were successful in their auditions and were cast
as Lost Boys.
He and the other children who were playing roles as the Lost Boys received months of stunt training with swords and how to choreograph fight scenes before they began filming _Peter Pan). Theodore spent close to six months in Australia filming, during which time he was tutored on set and had the opportunity to surf and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.
Although he has not appeared in anything since, Theodore wouldn't mind acting again as he had so much fun on the 'Peter Pan' production.

Theodore Chester quotes
- [On being cast as Slightly in the film 'Peter Pan'] "One day at school this man came into my class room and said, 'He's the one' and pulled me out of class to have my parents come in and discuss me playing a Lost Boy in a new 'Peter Pan' movie. It was all very thrilling... but I don't know how often that kind of thing happens."
