Date of Birth: November 11, 1996
Tye Kayle Sheridan had only acted in a handful of school plays before he was chosen out of a field of 10,000 boys to play the youngest son of Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life. His performance in the critically-acclaimed film won him a spot in indieWIRE’s "Top twenty-five Filmmaker and Actors" of 2011.
Tye next co-starred opposite Matthew McConaughey in Mud, playing a young teen named Ellis who helps a convict escape the law. His third feature was playing the role of Gary Jones, the eldest child in a homeless family headed by an alcoholic father in Joe. He and an ex-con (Nicolas Cage) become close as they try to find a better life in the hard world of small-town Mississippi.
Tye's career has really taken off since then. In 2016, he joined the X-Men universe in the role of Scott Summers/Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), reprising it in Dark Phoenix (2019). In 2018, he played the starring role of Wade Watts in the Warner Bros. feature film Ready Player One (2018).
In his spare time, Tye, who lives in Elkhart, Texas, enjoys baseball, basketball, bow hunting and bow fishing.
