Hello everyone! My name is Elise and I have just taken over Brenton Thwaites Fan! I am very excited to get started on the site and bring it back to date! I should be catching up with all the latest news and photos in the next week or two as I am on winter break. Thank you!
If you are still interested in taking over the site please let me know, the last person who wanted to take over the site never got around to it, thanks. Email me at sawebmissREMOVETHIS@yahoo.com.
It has been over a year since I first launched the site and put so much work into it but don’t have the time like I use to in running the site any longer. Brenton is doing so well and so excited to see him in his future roles and of course “The Giver”.
It is a bit hard to let the site go but I am sure there will be a wonderful new owner for the site. If you are interested please email me at sawebmissREMOVETHIS@yahoo.com.
Thanks and I will always be a fan of talented Brenton :).
Brenton Thwaites has been on the cusp for a while now, with recent roles in the horror hit “Oculus,” the sci-fi film “The Signal,” and a small but crucial role in the megahit “Maleficent.” But it’s the upcoming “The Giver” that will most likely break him through to the next level.
The YA adaptation of Lois Lowry’s beloved novel stars Thwaites as Jonas, a boy who lives in a post-apocalyptic society engrained with Sameness. Only when he starts to work with an old man with secrets of his own (Jeff Bridges) does Jonas start to realize the world is less black and white — quite literally — than he first thought it was.
“I was drawn to Jonas mainly because he has such a complex journey throughout the film,” Thwaites told MTV News when we talked over e-mail. “He is literally chosen to ‘learn the history of the world.’ I thought, ‘I would like to learn me some history of the world from Jeff Bridges. Let’s do this!’ ”

Australian actor Brenton Thwaites is showing up on a lot of movie screens this year — and in a way, the Joker made him do it.
Like others of his generation, Thwaites, 24, grew up as an aspiring actor inspired by watching the career of the late Heath Ledger, from his rebellious teen in 10 Things I Hate About You to Batman’s psychotic supervillain in The Dark Knight.
“He was a young Aussie kid from a country town — Perth is in the middle of nowhere — who was doing really well overseas,” says Thwaites, a native of Queensland. “We looked up to that and believed that we could do that as well.”
The young actor is doing well at genre bingo — Thwaites played the skeptical half of a brother-sister duo in the April horror movie Oculus, went the fairy-tale route as a prince in Angelina Jolie’s Disney back-story Maleficent and stars as a teenager who receives the memory of an entire world’s history in the futuristic The Giver, out Aug. 15. Then he grabs a surfboard for the November family drama Ride and later in 2014 plays a criminal apprentice to Ewan McGregor’s Australian Public Enemy No. 1 in Son of a Gun.
Next up for Thwaites, though, is William Eubank’s indie sci-fi The Signal, a mind-bender out this weekend that features the actor as Nic, a recent college graduate who goes to New Mexico with friends to seek out an infamous hacker and winds up underground in a weird sterile holding facility being interrogated by an enigmatic Hazmat-suited scientist (Laurence Fishburne).
