Walles grew up across the United States, Europe and the Middle East. He graduated with both a BA and an MA from the prestigious Communications and Performing Arts programme at Emerson College in Boston, MA, and worked briefly as a copywriter before deciding to focus on his true passion: competing as a figure skater. Several years, medals (and injuries) later, Walles hung up his skates and found his new calling in the acting world. His feature film credits include Transformers: The Last Knight, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. TV includes 50 Ways to Kill Your Lover for Discovery ID and Mongrels for BBC 3. Walles also starred in the Tate Modern’s historic live broadcast of English Forecast, a performance art installation by Dutch artist Nicoline van Harskamp, in which he spoke in 32 different accents. Walles is a London-based American actor and voice artist with credits spanning commercial, corporate, audiobook, audiodrama, narration, games and ADR. His native accent is Californian, but he has lived in eight countries and consequently, he can speak a number of languages too: French, Dutch and Arabic fluently, as well as conversational German, Spanish and Greek.
