BE afraid, be very afraid, there is a werewolf on the lose in Enfield disguised as a 16-year-old boy going by the name of Jordan Coulson. Last seen appearing alongside Anthony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt in the big blockbuster remake of the classic horror movie The Wolfman, Jordan protests his gruesome appearance in the film is the result of four hours in make-up.

“It’s all prosthetics, make-up and contact lenses,” the rising star, who is a student at Hertford Regional College, tells me, “I’m pretty ugly to be honest.”

Jordan’s big break came when the casting director for the movie called the London drama school, Pineapple Performing Arts School, owned by his mother Maggie, looking for somebody to play the Wolfboy.

“I fitted the bill, so mum sent me to auditions,” Jordan recalls. “The director took one look at me and said, ‘you’re it’.”

Starring in a flashback scene in which Hopkins’ character, Sir John Talbot, remembers when he was attacked by a wild creature of the night, Jordan shot his sequence in one day of filming at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

“We knew the movie was going to be huge the first time we saw the set,” Jordan tells me. “They had created this huge wood scene and it looked amazing.”

Because Jordan shot his scenes solo he never got to meet the cast, but he did get to work with director Joe Johnston.

“He told me when he flicked his hand to turn around and when he flicked it again I had to jump at the camera, screw my eyes up and think of something that angered me. I muffed up the first time because I was a bit nervous but then I got it and they were really happy. He was a really nice guy and he had the biggest hands, they swamped me.”

Describing it as an “honour” to be in the movie, Jordan, who is also set to appear in the new Harry Potter movie, got his first experience of the showbiz lifestyle when he saw the movie for the first time at a special screening in Leicester Square.

“We walked into the cinema and went to find some seats but then the ushers recognised us and they showed us to our reserved seats, which was pretty cool.”
