International Star You Should Know: Thomas Cocquerel

CAREER BUILDING 

In 2013, Cocquerel made his screen debut in short film “Walk Right In” and had a single-episode arc in Aussie TV series “Love Child” before he was tapped to star opposite Anthony Hopkins in helmer Daniel Alfredson’s “Kidnapping Freddie Heineken,” now in post.

TRAINING CAMP 

On the “Heineken” set,  the 24-year-old Cocquerel got to spend some time with countrymen Sam Worthington and Ryan Kwanten, all part of the gang that pinch the title character, played by Hopkins, based on a real 1983 kidnapping. “They certainly taught me a great deal about work ethic and gave me tips about the behind-the-scenes business that goes on in Hollywood,” Cocquerel says. “(Hopkins) is a real force on set, an incredible actor, and such a kind man.”

MEDIC ALERT 

Cocquerel will next be seen in Oz TV project “Anzac Girls,” a period miniseries about the role of Aussie nurses in World War II.

SOBER PERSPECTIVE

Despite his growing success, Cocquerel realizes his big international break may still be years away, though “Kidnapping Freddie Heineken” has opened doors for him. “I know a lot of actors who have a long list of credits and are still fighting for and auditioning for roles,” he says.

HOT LINKs 

Still, he’s managed to score some points in the tabloids, being linked to actresses Lily Collins and Dianna Agron. What better way to raise your Q Score?
