He melted our hearts as Augustus Waters in ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and Caleb Prior in ‘Divergent’ and became one of our favourite actors ever, but Ansel Elgort has achieved much more than just that- and he’s only 20 years old!
Since his screen debut in 2013, Mr Elgort has won 7 out of 9 awards- with one still pending (People’s Choice Awards 2015- we’re rooting for you, Ansel!) Those awards include four Teen Choice Awards, two Young Hollywood Awards and an MTV Millennial Award! Not bad for ya CV, eh?
The film, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ in which Ansel co stars alongside the beautiful Shailene Woodley, has won over 13 awards including 6 TCAs, three YHA’s and a Golden Space Needle Award. Not to mention the fact that it broke the pre-sales record as Top-Selling Romantic Drama. Clearly, the world are in love with Shay and Ansel, then!
‘Divergent’ is another 2014 flick which we have seen Elgort in, which has won a further 5 awards and is nominated for three in the 2015 People’s Choice Awards.
Aside from his clearly successful acting career, Ansel is also a DJ dontchaknow? Ansølo is the name he uses in which he posts his own electro dance music and remixes. He’s also released two records on iTunes, ‘Unite’ and ‘Totem’. Talk about multi talented!
Alongside these great achievements, Ansel Elgort has 2.31m Twitter followers, over 50,000 Soundcloud follows and 1.8m Vine followers. We’re jealous.
So many achievements in such a short time and so many more to come!
With his new movie, Men, Women and Children releasing recently, as well as The Divergent Series, we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Ansel in the very near future. HOORAY.
‘Men, Women and Children’ is released December 5th nationwide.
