He stayed in the TV world for the next few years, playing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozard in Genie in the House, a student in A Touch of Frost and Colm Roach Casualty. In 2007, he landed a role on a TV series that exposed him to a much wider audience on the popular British program Skins, playing Josh Stock.
