John Travers (born 31 January 1989) is an actor from Belfast, Northern Ireland.[1]


He was best known from his role in the Song for a Raggy Boy and 48 Angels.[1] His role as Liam Mercier (lead boy) in Song for a Raggy Boy is probably the most notable achievement so far. This role had won the audience award at Normandy film festival specialising in the best British and Irish recent releases as well as other 17 awards along the way.

In 2007, he starred with Mischa Barton in the World War I film Closing the Ring, the final film directed by Richard Attenborough. His recent role as Young Michel Quinlan (Pete Postlethwaite in older version) in Closing the Ring had brought this young man from Belfast (his hometown) to international eyes.[1]

In 2008, John was in Peacefire.[1] In the movie which was directed by Macdara Vallely, John took the lead role for the first time.[1]
