He was called William Poulter, but his mother Caroline called him Will. Neil, the boy’s father, liked his son very much. But he was too busy with his work. So Caroline decided to quit the job. She became ideal English housewife, who cared about her husband and four children (except Will, the spouse had three more children – two daughters and a son).
The boy was noisy and active from the very childhood. He was fond of football and played it all day long. The parents supposed Will to become a famous footballer in future. They didn’t know that their son was dreaming to act on the set during long cold evenings. One day Will decided to study drama. Will Poulter went to the Harrodian School. He was smart and handsome and teachers liked the boy. It was noticeable at first sight that Will used to be talented. He was popular amongst boys and girls. Boys liked him to play football and girls had eyes on him. Will was interested in girls, as it is peculiar to boyish nature. Nevertheless he didn’t date to any of them. Some gossips connected his name with some girl, named Zoe. The rumors about Will’s personal life were different. Some of his classmates even thought, he was a gay. The topic of Will Poulter dating was forbidden. He had never discussed it with his friends. Will Poulter dreamed to start acting in films and TV series as early as it is possible.
