Jamie Bell feels starting young was a good move

The 28-year-old, who was cast in the title role in Billy Elliot when he was just 13 years old, thinks starting out so young has given him a freedom in his career.

‘To be honest with you, I can't imagine just coming into the business now. I'd be terrified and it would probably scare me off,’ quoted Bell as saying. He added: ‘I wonder if coming in so young and not having those preconceived ideas of being an actor or working in Hollywood or being a celebrity- which obviously are all part of the business, part of the industry– if not having those things as a child just allows you to pursue things without any...maybe without any forethought!
