Early life[edit]

Weeks is the son of Robin and Susan Weeks, and the younger brother of Honeysuckle and Perdita Weeks, both actresses. He attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School and Stowe School.

Acting[edit]

Weeks' debut film was The Little Vampire (2000), directed by Ulrich Edel, which earned Weeks a Young Artist Award nomination. Soon following were roles in Girl With a Pearl Earring (2003) and The Queen of Sheba's Pearls (2004). His second turn as a title character came as Scipio in The Thief Lord (2006), a movie based on Cornelia Funke's novel The Thief Lord and directed by Richard Claus.[1] Weeks has also appeared in two TV shows: Berkeley Square (1998) as Lord Louis Wilton and Goggle Eyes (1993) as Joseph. In 2009 Rollo acted in the second part of the Shark Week special Blood in the Water. In 2010, he got the part as Jacob in Booked Out, about the lives of characters within an aging block of flats.

He also appeared early on in Stephen Poliakoff's The Lost Prince as the young George, Duke of Kent, in a film about his hidden epileptic and disabled younger brother John.

In 2011, he also portrayed the character of Leo Wyatt in No More Love Notes alongside Phoebe Tonkin.
