The girl in the photographs premiere interviews nick simon kal penn claudia lee luke baines
Born in Hyde, Greater Manchester, in the United Kingdom, Baines grew up in the beach-side suburb of Cronulla, Sydney in Australia. He began acting lessons when he was five years old.
Baines attended The McDonald College of Performing Arts in North Strathfield, New South Wales where he studied drama, music and dance.
In 2008, Baines auditioned during a 6-month nationwide casting search for the West End production of Spring Awakening the musical. In November of that year, he performed in the workshop at the Lyric Hammersmith in the role of Hanschen.
Most notably, he appeared as Wes Craven’s last serial killer in The Girl in the Photographs (2016), which premiered in Midnight Madness at 2015 Toronto International Film Festival – a performance that received critical praise from outlets such as The Wrap, The Line Up and Press Pass LA, who singled him out as a breakout star.
In 2013, Baines starred in Richard Zelniker's As Night Comes (originally titled Mischief Night). The film follows troubled 17-year-old Sean Holloway (Myko Olivier) who falls in with a group of teenage outcasts called 'The Misfits,' whose charismatic and deeply dysfunctional leader, Ricky Gladstone (Baines), takes him under his wing.
Baines also appears in Mark Webber and Teresa Palmer's The Ever After. The independent feature stars Palmer, Weber, Melissa Leo, Phoebe Tonkin and Tahyna Tozzi. It was filmed in Los Angeles and New York between July and August 2013.
His forthcoming projects include Fright Fest opposite Dylan Walsh, and David Fincher’s HBO show, Video Synchronicity.
His stage highlights include Spring Awakening the Musical, Footloose the Musical and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As a model, he has appeared in advertisements and editorials for American Eagle, American Rag, Roark Collective and Chapter.
