It’s a good thing that 18-year-old actor Toby Regbo was a quick study-he had an allergic reaction to his first drama class. “They had us stand in front of a mirror and pretend to be a plant,” he recalls. “I thought, ‘Oh, shit. Is this what drama is going to be like?’?” Impatience paid off for the London teen, who found another theater group run by an agent who got him into auditions. Two guest spots on British TV helped him get cast as the young Dumbledore in the highly anticipated final two Harry Potter films–a.k.a. one of the rare golden tickets in the cinematic lottery. Part one lands in theaters this month. “The part I play means so much to certain people,” he reflects. “They send you very intense mail, saying everything from ‘I hope it goes well for you’ to ‘Don’t mess it up or I’ll kill you.’?” Having played overburdened adolescents in both the 2009 film Mr. Nobody and the West End play Tusk Tusk, Regbo seems to be cornering the market on young alienated types. He will star alongside Ellen Burstyn and Marcia Gay Harden in the upcoming comedy Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. In the movie, Regbo plays James Sveck, a sexually confused high school senior who rejects just about everything. “It’s searingly accurate about what it’s like to be this age,” says Regbo. “Because James is so self-aware, he can never invest himself in anything fun.” Aside from overinvested Harry Potter fans, Regbo is also acclimating to the online scrutiny that has come with his father’s tendency to google him. “I was at the BFI London Film Festival and this photo of me got put up online,” he says. “My father sent me a link to the article, which was from a website called something like hairandbeautycelebrities.com. It was analyzing my haircut. And it had been cut by my grandmother about 20 minutes before I got to the premiere.”

It was Toby’s birthday on the 18th of October, so happy late birthday, sorry I’ve been busy.
I have added more on set pictures from Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You, hopefully I will get them untagged soon.
EDIT: I have edited the post with HQ’s and untagged.
Elda Ferri and Allen Bain announced today the wrap of principal photography on Director Roberto Faenza’s “Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You” based on Peter Cameron’s award-winning novel of the same name. Praised by critics and readers alike, Cameron’s 2007 novel has been favorably compared to “The Catcher in the Rye.”
A heartfelt New York comedy, the film was shot entirely in New York and stars Toby Regbo (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows”) in his first lead role as well as veteran actors Marcia Gay Harden, Peter Gallagher, Ellen Burstyn and Stephen Lang and features Deborah Ann Woll (“True Blood”), Aubrey Plaza (“Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”) and Lucy Liu.
“Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You” is a funny and tender film about James Sveck (Regbo), a vulnerable teenager with a deep appreciation for the world and no idea how to live in it. James is the child of divorced parents living in Manhattan (Harden and Gallagher). While his estranged parents may be better served examining their own lives, they seem more content conspiring to guide him in a more “normal” direction.
James, however, rejects all the assumptions that govern the adult world around him, including the expectation that he will go college in the fall. Articulate, sensitive, and cynical, he would much prefer to move to an old house in the country and spend his life reading books and learning long forgotten trades.
