Julian Dennison currently stars as one of the new leads in Fox’s upcoming film DEADPOOL 2 alongside Ryan Reynolds. This is straight off of his work as the co-lead opposite Sam Neill in Taika Waititi’s awarding winning film HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE. After 23 awards and a critically acclaimed Sundance reception in 2016, HFTWP became the highest grossing film in New Zealand film history. Julian’s stand out performance combining raucous humor but tons of heart and charm landed him his first win for best actor at the New Zealand Film and TV Awards.
Julian burst onto the scene at the age of nine with his first feature film SHOPPING for writer/directors Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland. The film was accepted by both the Berlin International Film Festival and Sundance. Julian won a best supporting actor award for his work in the film at the New Zealand Film and TV Awards that year. The next year, Julian followed it up with PAPER PLANES opposite Sam Worthington.
