Before attending acting school, where he acquired knowledge of the performing arts, Elliot Knight received his first call for a leading role in a major film.

He was raised by teachers – his father Stuart, who works at Broadway Secondary School in Perry Barr, Birmingham, and his mother Lorna Knight.
Typical of a child raised by educators, Elliot graduated from King Edward VI Aston School with no problems and continued his studies at the Manchester Metropolitan School of Theatre.
