Now, Joe has reinvented himself as Professor Jonathon Moore, a college instructor of American short fiction and, while he’s desperate to rekindle things with Marienne (Tati Gabrielle), he soon slips back into his old ways and falls in with “the most insane, damaged people on earth... a circle of privileged douchebags”.

One of these newcomers is Rhys Montrose, played by Ed Speleers, who Joe first comes across at a bougie party.

Speleers is an actor who landed the lead role of Eragon in the 2006 movie adaptation of the book series when he was just 17.

Speleers did not go to acting school and said he has a "massive chip on my shoulder about that" when speaking to Interview Magazine in 2016.

"Coming from England, it’s a tradition,” he continued. “It’s less and less so now; there are a lot of great young actors coming out of England who have maybe not gone to drama school, but I wish I had.”

He added that he’s always working with coaches, because “I think it’s important to work on yourself. If you aren’t going to work for a bit, if you’re going to choose not to take a job for a few months, you need to work on your own – and I don’t want to use this term – craft.”

Speleers is joining the drama as Adam alongside a host of other new You season 4 cast members, including Lukas Gage.

How old is Ed Speleers?

The actor is 34 years old.

What has Ed Speleers previously starred in?

What has Ed Speleers said about You season 4?

Speaking exclusively to, Speleers recently said of season 4: "Within this show, there’s definitely been an obsession with looking at high society; that’s obviously a running thread.

"I feel that it was interesting being a British actor seeing what the American take on it was. I feel like they’ve kind of got it on point."

He continued: "This is a series that elevates things. There are elements that are supposed to be slightly eyebrow-raising and they are supposed to be fun, and we are supposed to glitz it up a little bit. I think that’s been interesting to explore.

"We’re surrounded by it all the time. Every time you read a media publication or anything political, it’s all driven about a lot of these things at the moment and the disparity between society.

"So I think it makes sense to explore that, explore what is making those people tick and how do those people exist and operate. And ultimately, it’s quite fun bringing them down a peg or two."
