He made his first foray into the entertainment industry in 2017 when he worked as an extra in the fantasy film sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The following year, he had his first acting role in the Australian dramedy film Swinging Safari. In the movie, he played the character of Rooster.
Jacob became widely known for his role as Noah Flynn in the Netflix romantic comedy series The Kissing Booth and Nate Jacobs in HBO’s Euphoria. He has also appeared in several other movies and television shows. His upcoming roles include the drama Saltburn by Emerald Fennell and the thriller The Sweet East by Sean Price Williams. He is also slated to appear in the anthology film The Mortuary Collection.
Debut in The Kissing Booth
John Elordi’s son Jacob made his debut in the Netflix hit teen romance film The Kissing Booth in 2018. The movie was based on Beth Reekles’ book series and stars Joey King as Elle Evans and her boyfriend Noah Flynn. The film was a success, and the duo quickly formed an off-screen connection. The pair started dating, but their relationship ended in late 2019.
Joey recently opened up about her ex-boyfriend in a new Cosmopolitan cover story. She says working with Jacob on the movie set was an amazing experience, but she admits that it wasn’t love at first sight.
Now, the stars of The Kissing Booth are preparing to return for the third and final installment in the franchise. The film will follow Elle as she chooses between going to Berkeley with her best friend and Harvard with her boyfriend. Joey and Jacob will reprise their roles along with co-stars Elle’s mother Mary (Molly Ringwald), Marco Pena (Taylor Zakhar Perez), and Chloe Winthrop (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). The movie is expected to be released in 2022.
Debut in Swinging Safari
While most young actors spend months or years on the audition roundabout, Jacob Elordi landed his first role at age 19. Strikingly handsome and symmetrical in a way that reminded him of old-world stars like Cary Grant and Errol Flynn, the Australian actor was immediately cast as one of three romantic leads in the 2018 Netflix hit rom-com The Kissing Booth.
He reprised the role in the sequel and the third film in the series, and also starred as Nate Jacobs in the HBO television series Euphoria. In 2019, he starred in the horror film The Mortuary Collection and began dating actress Kaia Gerber.
Despite his young age, Elordi has already dated several celebrities. He dated Joey King, his Kissing Booth co-star, for over a year before they split in 2018. He later dated model Kaia Gerber and influencer Olivia Jade Giannulli, the daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli at the center of the 2019 college admissions scandal.
Debut in Euphoria
After his debut in The Kissing Booth, Jacob Elordi was cast as polarizing character Nate Jacobs in HBO’s Euphoria. The show quickly became one of the most popular teen dramas on television. His acting prowess shines in the role of a high school athlete with sexual insecurities and anger issues.
His portrayal of the bully has earned him huge popularity and critical acclaim. The Nudgee College alumnus has also become an in-demand fashion model. He was named the face of Hugo Boss’ men’s fragrances and eyewear in 2022. He was also spotted with socialite Olivia Jade Giannulli, daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, in the wake of the college admissions scandal in 2019.
Like his co-star Joey King, Elordi has had a few showmances. In August 2020, he was linked with fellow actor Zendaya after they were seen vacationing together in Greece. Though their romance fizzled out by spring of 2020, they remained friendly. In fact, he was the first to congratulate her on her historic Emmy win in September of that year.
