Early life and education
Born at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in Exeter, Devon, Treadaway was brought up in Sandford, Devon. His father is an architect and his mother is a primary school teacher. Treadaway attended Queen Elizabeth's Community College in Crediton, Devon, where he played in the twice Devon Cup winning Rugby Union team.
While still at drama school, he had his professional debut in Brothers of the Head, alongside his twin brother Luke Treadaway, a feature film about conjoined twin brothers in a punk rock band. He played Tom Howe, the band's rhythm guitarist and songwriter, and his brother Luke played Barry Howe, the lead singer. The Treadaways performed all tracks featured in the film themselves live on stage, as well as recording nine tracks for the sound-track album.
In 2007, he acted in the Tiger Aspect film Recovery. He starred as Mark Brogan on the Channel 4 series Cape Wrath (known as Meadowlands in the United states). Treadaway played Joy Division drummer Stephen Morris in the film Control,(2008). He appeared in the Channel 4 television movie The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall in 2008.
In 2009, he starred in the Johnny Kevorkian–directed horror film The Disappeared, and the children's science fiction-fantasy film City of Ember. The same year, he made his stage debut in Over There, a play by Mark Ravenhill, alongside his twin brother Luke at the Royal Court Theatre in 2009.
In 2016, he was cast as one of the leads in Audience's Mr. Mercedes, based on the novel of the same name. His part was that of Brady Hartsfield, a brilliant young psychopath who decides to engage in a cat-and-mouse game with Gleeson's Bill Hodges. Anton Yelchin had originally been given the role of Hartsfield, but following Yelchin's death in June 2016, it was announced that his role had been recast with Treadaway assuming the part.
Treadaway is the twin brother of the actor Luke Treadaway.
