Prior to 2007, Dev Patel was just another London teenager, albeit one with a passion for acting and tae kwon-do. But after landing a role on the controversial television series “Skins” (E4, 2007- ), he caught the attention of director Danny Boyle, who was desperate for a non-traditional leading man of Indian descent for his new film. The picture, “Slumdog Millionaire” (2008), was a charming comedy-drama about a young resident of the Mumbai slums who earns a shot at improving his life via the game show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” Patel’s endearing performance helped to make the film a hit with festival audiences around the world; it also signaled the emergence of a comic talent whose full screen potential had yet to be tapped.

Born in Harrow, a suburb of London, England in April of 1990, Patel began training in tae kwon do at the age of 10, and worked steadily towards achieving a black belt in the discipline. According to the web site for Rayners Lane Academy – the school where he received his martial arts training – Patel netted an impressive collection of trophies and medals in both national and international competitions, including a World Championship title. Tae kwon do appeared to consume much of Patel’s interest until his mid-teens, when he began to explore acting. He landed his first job on the teen-oriented comedy-drama “Skins.” Aggressively promoted by its network as an answer to such adult-themed American series as “Gossip Girl” (The CW, 2007- ), the series focused on the lives of several Bristol teens as they navigate the difficult transition between adolescence and adulthood. Patel’s character, Anwar, was a Muslim from a strict family who rebelled against them by indulging whole-heartedly in alcohol, drugs and casual sex. After attempting to form a relationship with a somewhat unstable young woman, he abandons his studies to move to London in order to seek his fortune on his own terms. A sizable hit with younger audiences, as well as a hot button issue with parents due to its content, “Skins” received a nomination for Best Drama Series from BAFTA in 2008.

While working on “Skins,” Patel was brought to the attention of director Danny Boyle, who was struggling to find a young Indian actor to play the lead in his new film. Based on a real-life event and penned by Simon Beaufoy (“The Full Monty,” 1997), “Slumdog Millionaire” told the story of an illiterate teen from the slums of Mumbai who lands a chance to compete on the Indian version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” despite adversity from nearly every angle. Boyle had originally hoped to cast an Indian national in the lead, but found most of the leading men there to be near-perfect physical specimens and completely inappropriate for the role. He eventually found his leading man in Patel after his 15-year-old daughter showed him an episode of “Skins.”
