Freddie Stroma became engaged to his UnREAL (2015) season 1 co-star, Johanna Braddy, on May 15, 2016 during a romantic weekend in Vancouver, They were married at The Stables at Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, December 30, 2016.
Freddie (Cormac McLaggen Stromas's line, "My father WILL hear about this!" (on the "Hogwarts Express", in the 7th "Harry Potter" movie is reminiscent of Tom (Draco Malfoy) Felton's statements in the 1st, 3rd and 4th movies in the series (in the "Dark Forest"/Detention scene, the "Care of Magical Creatures" lesson scene, and near the end of the "ferret" scene, respectively).
What attracted me to acting, from the start, was playing different characters. I'm not a massive fan of just playing myself on screen.
I would most like to do film or TV. Possibly theatre in the future, but I'm in L.A. a lot of the time at the moment and if I was going to do theatre it would be in London.
If my dramatic career doesn't work out, I will go on to research and find cures for Alzheimer's or Parkinson's and other motor neuron diseases. It's a very exciting field of research. But I'd like to continue in drama, so it wouldn't be very smart of me if I blew this amazing opportunity with an inappropriate lifestyle.
In England, I suppose I have been known to once or twice tune into 'Big Brother', which is a pretty terrible guilty pleasure.
Acting. It's the number one thing I love to do. That's why when people ask me what else I'd love to do, I have no answer - this is all I ever wanted to do.
It was fun playing a horrible, snotty kid in 'Harry Potter', and then playing Prince Charming where I was also singing and playing guitar, and then playing a completely different character.
I've got a pretty close bond with everyone in my family. I've got a brother and a sister whom I'm very close to, and my parents have always been the world's best parents.
There are plenty of actors who've caught the singing bug and vice versa, but with musical performers, you're constantly a persona - which is something I love about acting: you play a character, you leave and you get to be yourself again.
I really enjoyed my degree, for me it was the best course you can do. To be able to study the brain and nervous system and the mind with a scientific approach is just incredible! Its philosophical, psychological and biological, three very interesting areas to me.
I think it's really important for your mental health to think about the big questions, to discuss them and open your mind, in order to prepare you for both life and death.
I never remember my dreams.
If you can play lots of different characters, that's fun. As long as the material is good, that's what the attraction is for me.
Education has always been very important to me.
Americans always ask how much I love my accent, and I don't get that - I think I sound like a school teacher.
I left Facebook after Facebook groups began appearing about me and suddenly your personal photographs start becoming public property.
