Eros Vlahos
on 'Double Tap'

Although he's only 25, Eros Vlahos has already had two very significant careers. At the age of 12, he was the youngest ever comedian to perform an hour long show at the Edinburgh Fringe and this led to him being cast in 'Nanny McPhee Returns' alongside Emma Thompson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ralph Fiennes.

Appearances in sitcom 'Episodes' and drama 'Game of Thrones' followed and he was all set for a glittering career in front of the camera before he decided that he much preferred life on the other side. He has directed a number of short films now, including 'Double Tap' which appears in the 'Short Cut' below, followed by an interview with Eros filmed in Soho Square against a backdrop of construction work and brawling drunks.
