Continue reading for 10 things you didn’t know about Felix Mallard.

1. He’s Worked Hard To Develop An American Accent

If you’ve seen some of Felix’s work in the United States, you may not have even realized that he is Australian. That’s because he has worked very hard to learn an American accent, and it has become his default for acting opportunities. In fact, he was slightly caught off guard when he was asked to act with his regular accent while filming Happy Together.

2. He Likes To Surf

As someone who grew up in Australia, Felix is no stranger to having easy access to the beach. He loves spending time by the water and enjoys going surfing when he gets some free time. Los Angeles and Australia probably don’t have a ton of things in common, but beautiful beaches is one thing  they definitely share.

3. He Is Close With His Family

The entertainment industry may look flashy and glamorous, but underneath all of that it can be a very dark place. With that being said, it’s extremely important for actors to surround themselves with people who genuinely have their best interest at heart. Felix has been blessed to have a close relationship with his family who also doubles as his support system.

4. He’s A Model

These days, when someone says they’re a model a little bit of extra clarification is needed. After all, many of the people who claim to be models have only ever modeled on social media, Felix, however, is the real deal. He is signed to a professional modeling agency and has done several photoshoots.

5. Harry Styles Called Him Directly When He Was Cast In Happy Together

Being cast in the TV series Happy Together was an awesome moment for Felix for multiple reasons. Not only was he excited about getting the part, but he was excited that Harry Styles called him personally to offer hi the job. Felix says, “I was expecting a call from Ben, our executive producer, and all of the sudden the phone rings. An unknown number calls, so I put on a hat and get ready to talk. I answer, and it goes, ‘Hi, this is Harry. We really like your stuff and we hope you come on board.”

6. He’s A Fencer

On top of acting, sports have also played a major role in Felix’s life. Felix has been a fencer for many years after starting the sport when he was a child. He competed in the Australian Fencing Federation in 2012 and 2013. Due to his busy schedule these days, he probably doesn’t get much time do fence.

7. He Loves To Draw

Felix is truly a creative person and his self expression doesn’t start or end with acting. He is also a big fan of visual arts and he loves to draw. Felix is definitely a talented artist, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like he has done any drawing in quite some time.

8. He’s In A Band

Felix is a man of many talents, and even that doesn’t paint an accurate picture of how many things he’s good at. In addition to acting, drawing, and fencing, Felix is also a musician who is in a band called Enemies Alike. He told The Knockturnal, ” I sing more so because songs need lyrics. But I’ve been playing guitar for twelve years and with that came bass guitar and then piano.”

9. He’s Attended Black Lives Matter Protests

Felix isn’t shy about using his platform to stand up for the things he believes in, and one of those things is that racism and police brutality need to end. Not only has he posted about the movement on social media, but he also attended Black Lives Matter protests.

10. He Has A YouTube Channel

Most wouldn’t consider Felix to be a YouTuber, but he does have a channel that he started back in 2013. Unfortunately, he hasn’t posted any new content in about a year. It’s kind of surprising that the channel only has 844 subscribers, but that’s likely because Felix doesn’t have the link in his Instagram bio.
