Stormbreaker Star Quits School
The star of new teenage spy movie STORMBREAKER has quit school on the back of the film's projected success. ALEX PETTYFER, 16, is so confident the movie will make him a household name he's turning his back on an expensive education to pursue an acting career. Speaking at the London premiere of the film last night (17JUL06) he revealed he's already dropped out of prestigious $29,000 (GBP16,000)-a-year Shiplake College in Oxfordshire, England. He says, "When you have already experienced going out and working in the real world, and you come back to school, you just see it as a playground and you don't want to be there any more." Pettyfer stars alongside CLUELESS actress ALICIA SILVERSTONE and EWAN MCGREGOR in the film based on ANTHONY HOROWITZ's novels.
