Sebastian Toby M. Pugh (born 26 February 1992), known as Toby Sebastian, is an English actor and musician.[1] He is best known for portraying the character of Trystane Martell in the HBO series Game of Thrones.

Early life[edit]

Sebastian was born in Oxford, and grew up in Andalusia with his three sisters (all actresses): Florence, Arabella, and Rafaela. His father, Clinton Pugh, is a restaurateur and runs The Grand Café, Kazbar and the Café Coco restaurants in Oxford. His mother Deborah studied dance at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.[2]

Career[edit]

Sebastian first appeared on TV as a contestant on Orange unsignedAct in 2008. Sebastian performed as a singer-songwriter performing his own songs as part of a competition to win a £60,000 recording contract, but did not make the final. In 2012, his first role (albeit uncredited) came in The Hollow Crown. The following year, he portrayed Russell in the film After the Dark. Afterwards, he appeared in The Red Tent as Re-mose, in Barely Lethal as Cash Fenton, and in the fifth season of Game of Thrones as Trystane Martell. Game of Thrones casting director Nina Gold later explained his casting in the series: "We knew Toby more because he'd done a lot of music things in the past, but he has a really romantic feel that just worked."[citation needed]

Sebastian portrayed Andrea Bocelli in the biopic The Music of Silence, directed by the Academy Award nominated director Michael Radford.
