About A Guy: Thomas McDonell
Recognize this face in The Getaway Plan lookbook? It's actor Thomas McDonell, who currently appears on the CW's The 100, but whose multidisciplinary approach to work and diverse film role choices have us nodding in approval.
The 28-year-old native New Yorker started acting in 2009, but before that worked as visual artist, showing work internationally after studying art in school. McDonell calls his initial foray into acting one big experiment—a small part in the Jackie Chan movie The Forbidden Kingdom, a role he landed after randomly going to a casting call while studying art in Shanghai. Today, his side project has taken center stage, with McDonnell appearing in big film roles ranging from an elevated bad boy Disney's Prom to portraying a young Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. It's a clever antidote to typecasting that leaves us curious about what multitasking McDonell will do—or rather, what can't he do—next?
