Max Pirkis (born 6 January 1989) is an English actor. Appearing in two productions during the mid-2000s, Pirkis made his film debut in Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) after the film crew recruited him at his school, Eton College. In a critically praised performance, he won the Evening Standard British Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer and the Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor in an International Film. Two years later, Pirkis was cast in the BBC/HBO television series Rome as Gaius Octavian, a role he held until 2007.

If the filming doesn't interfere with school and exams and, I know this is a lot to ask for, if it's a good director, and a good script, then yeah, I will do another film. But I don't need to work. Doing films is fun but it's nice having a normal life with friends.
