Everything You Need To Know About Industry’s Harry Lawtey

He's proving very popular.

TV has been one of the only highlights of this year. (And thank goodness, considering we've all been trapped inside.) We've had I May Destroy You, Emily In Paris and who can forget Normal People and our obsession with Paul Mescal. But now we have something new to watch: Industry, the HBO/BBC co-production exploring the life of duelling graduates in a London investment bank following the 2008 financial crisis. And there's a new actor who has our attention: Harry Lawtey.

Harry plays party boy Robert in the drama, who was seen in the first episode snorting drugs and having sex in a toilet cubicle. Harry studied at Sylvia Young Theatre School and then Drama Centre London, and his part in Industry is his first big role on screen - but he's previously appeared in ITV’s Marcella, Netflix’s The Letter for the King, and film City of Tiny Lights. Oh, and he's appeared in a Sam Smith video and a Burberry campaign. So he's not exactly a stranger to the limelight.

He sings, too. Harry used to busk around London and has been interviewed by NME. The actor wouldn't mind starring in a musical either. 'I’m a huge Beatles fan and I would love to play [their manager] Brian Epstein,' he told the website. 'He’s not necessarily a musician, but he’s got such an interesting life story. There are so many people associated around The Beatles’ history that have interesting lives. I’d love to do that.'

Lastly, what you probably all want to know is what is his Instagram? You can follow Harry here.
