Thomas Sangster is Paul McCartney

Thomas Sangster is Paul McCartney

Just like pal Olivia Olson, Thomas Sangster is growing up and looking to play Paul McCartney in the upcoming Nowhere Boy.

The 19-year-old British star, who you might remember from Love, Actually and Nanny McPhee, is learning to play guitar left-handed to portray the legendary Beatle, the Daily Mail reports.

Thomas will join Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas and Anne-Marie Duff in the upcoming movie, about the teenage years of John Lennon and the two women who shaped his early life.

Thomas already plays guitar, but he’s right-handed and will appear in scenes where Lennon and McCartney are about to form The Quarrymen, the skiffle group they played in before it became The Beatles.

Check out a clip from the film at and some more pics from Thomas‘s VMAN mag session below!

    ok, so he won’t need to learn bass because it is just the early years right?? I am very weary of this movie cause there has been so many that have not gotten their facts right. If a movie need be made of John’s teen years then I’d wish they’d show his cute relationship he has with Cynthia.. and when they met in art school. Cynthia gets barely any recognition compared to Yoko Ono which I think is bull when Cynthia was with John from before the Beatles all the way up to the White album.
    but still. this is interesting. I’m a Beatles nerd. :P
