Mini Biography
Frank trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (R.A.D.A.), graduating in 2013.

As a child he played Christopher Henderson in 'Welcome to Sarajevo' (Channel 4/Miramax/Dragon Pictures) directed by Michael Winterbottom. Aged sixteen Frank played Tom Riddle in 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' and reprised the role in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Parts 1&2' (Warner Bros), both directed by David Yates.

During his first year at R.A.D.A. Frank filmed the role of James Papadopoulos in 'Papadopoulos & Sons' (Double M Films), directed by Marcus Markou. Immediately upon graduating, he played Eugene Marchbanks in 'Candida' (Theatre Royal Bath), directed by Simon Godwin. Soon after he filmed the role of Henry Coffin in Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea' (Articulated Productions). Next came the role of Keyes in 'Viena and The Fantomes' (Lola Pictures) directed by Gerardo Naranjo, which is due for release in late 2017.

Frank then played series regular Shugs in Season One of 'Sense8' (Netflix) directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski. He next filmed the pilot for A.M.C.'s 'Fear the Walking Dead', playing the lead role of Nick Clark. The show was a huge success and he has subsequently appeared in all three seasons.

  • Quotes
  • I'm sure there will come a time when I won't be able to walk around so easy. I don't necessarily want to be famous. It takes away from the craft a little bit, but I think it's part of the job these days, it seems to be.
  • [on his role as Nick Clark in Fear the Walking Dead (2015)] I think it's important to distinguish that Nick isn't a drug addict, he's an addict. "Drug" is neither here nor there, really. It's just a solution to a problem. I guess if you're an addict and you only really have one problem in life, which is where to get your next fix from or burst from life, that single-minded conviction and willpower would put you in good standings. He's already concerned with life and death.
