Get your fill of blonde hair and soulful hazel eyes with American actor Ben Foster who also happens to be everyone’s favorite X-man. Benjamin A. Foster was born October 29th, 1980 in Boston, Massachusetts to two restaurant owning “hippie” parents as he would say.
Foster led a standard childhood in which his passions were nurtured and his ambitions did not go unnoticed. In fact, he was so ambitious that he had no problem dropping out of high school in the later years of his adolescence and went on to pursue his dream career, that of acting of course. Shortly after fleeing to Los Angeles to start his acting journey, Foster appeared in the series Flash Forward between the years of 1996 and 1997.
In the years following his television debut, Ben experienced the true nit and grit of the acting world; he was tried again and again with failed auditions but he broke the cycle soon after. He made frequent appearances in the HBO series Six Feet Under and starred in Hostage with Bruce Willis. Foster went on to star in many more TV series and movies however his claim to fame came with X-men: The Last Stand where he portrayed ever lovely, Angel.
Following his acquisition of the role of Angel, Foster went on to star in many various films, some short, and these included 360, Contraband and Kill Your Darlings. It has been announced that in 2016, Ben will play Medivh in the highly anticipated film, Warcraft. Interestingly enough, despite his soft features and mellow voice, Benjamin Foster enjoys playing crazed and violent characters above all others (watch out, it’s always the quiet ones).
Not only does Foster ‘foster’ a love for acting, he has also been extremely interested in the art of meditation and solving problems through this. “It’s always difficult. To feel, rather than to think, to tap into that source and let it come through you. It takes courage. Because we feel it and then we get scared and we analyze it. We live in this thought web, we identify things and put them away and distance ourselves from them. But to be completely present? That is source, that is art, that is spirituality. And meditation is a way to defy fear and experience that source. *Laughs* I know this is all esoteric and weird” (IMDb, Ben on Meditation).

The blonde star with the strange name has become a lovely actresses with a booming career. Remember Need for Speed’s Julia Maddon? That was Poots alright, and there’s plenty more surprising credentials where that came from!
Imogen was raised primarily in Chiswick and educated privately in West London. While in school at Bute House Preparatory School for Girls, Poots had every intention of entering into the field of veterinary medicine.

Poots first entered into the world of acting in an episode of Casualty and continued her screen time with a small role on V for Vendetta. At this point in her career, Imogen was still working her way up and had yet to be truly “noticed” by any big time producers and casters. Her true leap to fame came with the film 28 Weeks Later which is a chilling reminder to viewers just how vulnerable we are. Imogen plays Tammy Harris, a young girl trying to survive the horrors of the outbreak of disease along with her brother, Andy.
Following the success that 28 Weeks Later experienced, Poots was well on her way and had already begun to rack up roles in minor short films and television series. These included,Cracks, Waking Madison, Solitary Man, Centurion, Jane Eyre and Fright Night as well as many others. What really puts Imogen Poots high above others is her incredible flexibility; she can pull off so many various character styles and has appeared in an extremely wide range of films. Poots has said it herself, “As an actress i’m willing to go anywhere and try anything. If you trust the director you can create work you never thought imaginable” (i-D).
Following her roles in Need for Speed and That Awkward Moment, Imogen will be starring in Knight of Cups, alongside Natalie Portman and Christian Bale which comes out next year.
