Moving towards his family members, he was born to his father Peter Thwaites, and his mother Fiona Thwaites. Similarly, she also has a sister named Stacey Thwaites. In terms of his scholastic background, he completed his early education at Cairns State High School, graduating in 2006, and throughout this period, he had no interest in becoming an actor.

He, on the other hand, being the adventurous kind, wanted to attempt new things with his profession, and, at the age of 16, he landed as Romeo in a production of ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ He then enrolled in Queensland University of Technology to study acting before graduating in 2010.

Professional Life and Career

Brenton Thwaites, like many others, began his career in Sydney with soap operas and low-budget indie films.

In late 2010, he starred in the Australian adolescent drama series ‘Slide,’ about five teenage males, and this coming-of-age drama series created a rage among the Australian youth. Brenton is one of the new faces to watch in the future, thanks to the success of the series. The show, however, was short-lived and did not receive a second season renewal. Brenton, on the other hand, got just what he needed: high-level exposure, and landed a job in ‘Home and Away.’
