Dev Patel was born on April 23, 1990, in Harrow, London. The son of an IT employee and a caregiver, Dev Patel had an energetic and hyper personality, and craved attention and activity. Because of his manic energy, Dev Patel was pushed by his parents into the arts and, in middle school, he acted in his first play as Sir Andrew Aguecheek in a staged performance of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. He later won Best Actor of the Year from Longfield, his middle school.
From there, Dev Patel continued acting and, while attending Whitmore High School, he excelled in GCSE Drama. His proudest moment there was his fearless portrayal of a Russian hostage that earned him full credits. It was arguably this performance that reinforced Dev Patel's belief (and that of his mother) that he belonged in the acting world.
