Croft is best known for playing Ben Hope in Netflix smash Heartstopper. His character in Alice Oseman’s coming-of-age rom-com has a clandestine relationship with the show’s lead, Charlie (Joe Locke), at the start of the show, but it becomes clear that he is using Charlie and he is often antagonistic towards him.

Heartstopper has made huge stars of the likes of Locke and Kit Connor, who have also landed major agency representation.

Croft is also leading Prime Video’s upcoming rom-com movie How to Date Billy Walsh, in which he will play the lead role of Archie opposite Tanner Buchanan when the movie airs in April.

He recently wrapped filming on Nick Frost’s upcoming comedy thriller Svalta, in which he stars opposite Frost and Aisling Bea, as well as BBC drama Dope Girls with Eliza Scanlen and Julianne Nicholson.

Past credits include Horrible Histories, Wonderwell and Love, Death & Robots. On the theater side, Croft recently starred in Richard Eyre’s production of Amy Herzog’s play 4000 Miles alongside Dame Eileen Atkins.
