However, not much is known about his brother. Matter of fact, we are not even sure if Mike is an elder or younger brother. Ben has been pretty successful in keeping the details about his parents and possible brother away from the spotlight.

Since he uses Hardy as his last name, many people even relate him to actor Tom Hardy. They believe they are brothers. Well, it’s untrue. The two actors are not connected in any way. Now let’s get to know more about his early life.

Despite being born on January 2, 1991, in Bournemouth, Dorset, on the South-West coast of England, UK, Ben Hardy  (@benhardy) spent his childhood years in Sherborne, in North-West Dorset. He first attended Sherborne Abbey Primary School before moving on to The Gryphon School.

Hardy enjoyed theatre class in school, but until he was a teenager, he was more engaged in sports and had little interest in pursuing a career in acting. When he was 15, a string of injuries caused him to stop playing sports, including rugby. At the invitation of a friend, he went to the neighborhood drama club at the time, where he gradually developed an interest in performing arts.

Ben played the part of Sergeant Francis Troy in the school’s rendition of Far From the Madding Crowd while attending The Gryphon School. He then began his study at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama when he was 18 years old, and he eventually earned a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) in Acting.
