SINCE he made a dynamite screen debut at 14 in Billy Elliot as a boy from a harsh British mining town who finds himself through the unlikely route of ballet, Jamie Bell has been crushing it as an actor in projects as diverse as -

Undertow, The adventures of Tintin, Snowpiercer and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool.

This year, after winning raves as lyricist Bernie Taupin in the Elton John biopic Rocketman, Bell, 33. takes a dramatic change of pace in SKIN and delivers an awards-buzzed tour de force.

Based on the story of Bryon Widner, an American white supremacist and tattoo artist who inks his own skin as a message of hate. Skin - the first American feature from Israeli writer-director Guy Nattiv-makes extraordinary demands on Bell.

With the 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia violence still thundering in the public consciousness, the movie is a tragically topical story for out time. [Courtesy Rolling Stone]
