Early life and education
Freddie Stroma was born Frederic Wilhelm Sjostrom in London, England on 8 January 1987, to a Swedish father and a German mother, and he was raised in the nearby town Ascot. He was educated at the boys'-only boarding school Radley College and was the middle child of three with an older sister and a younger brother. Whilst undertaking a degree in Neuroscience at University College London, Freddie's film and modelling career began to flourish, leading him to take a break from his academic studies so that he could appear as Cormac McLaggen in the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Following filming, Stroma returned to University College London to complete his degree, claiming that it, "would have been a shame to just throw it away." In 2009, he attained a 2.1BSc (a second class degree) in Neuroscience.
Stroma was accepted into the highly prestigious National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, which led to various acting roles. He played small parts on a string of British TV shows, including Casualty and BBC's Mayo before being cast as Cormac McLaggen in the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. He attended various premieres for the film throughout the globe. He was later cast as Cool Brett in the crime-thriller film 126.96.36.199. He was later recast in the Harry Potter series in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2. He later appeared in the direct to DVD film A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song, as a British student, Luke Morgan, and played a minor role in Pitch Perfect, a 2012 comedy about the world of collegiate a cappella.
Besides acting, Stroma modelled for Acne Underwear in their Fall/Winter 2008 Collection.
As a part of his acting, Stroma showcased his talents in music while singing in Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song. He also dabbles with guitar but has never been professionally trained in either.
