Imogen Poots is a British actress known for her roles in films such as "28 Weeks Later" and the 2011 remake, "Fright Night."
Imogen Gay Poots was born in London, England on June 5, 1989 to parents Fiona and Trevor Poots, a television producer. Growing up, Imogen attended several schools in London, including the Bute House Preparatory School for Girls, Queen's Gate School for Girls and Latymer Upper School. It wasn't until attending the Youngblood Theatre Company, however, that her interest in acting was sparked. By age 14, she had found representation after being discovered by an agent while at the Riverside Studios youth club, and she soon landed a non-speaking role in the film "V for Vendetta."

Since the film didn't do much to launch her career, Imogen had plans to attend the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. However, soon after, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo cast her in the film "28 Weeks Later," and suddenly, her career as an actress began to take shape. She deferred her entry into school, and soon was landing roles in films like "Me and Orson Welles" and "Cracks." While it is somewhat customary for actors to attend training for their craft in other countries, Imogen decided against it and instead prefers to learn while on the set, as she is somewhat of a natural in front of the camera.
While Imogen Poots hasn't necessarily blown up yet, it is assumed that 2013 will put her well on her way. She already has such credits to her name in America as "Solitary Man" starring Michael Douglas and the 2011 remake of "Fright Night." To go along with those, she has starring in many films in Britain as well, including "Jane Eyre" and "Comes a Bright Day." She has six films on the docket for 2013, the most notable being "Filth," starring James McAvoy, and "Are We Officially Dating," co-starring Zac Efron.
