In the 2014 British science-fiction movie “Robot Overlords,” Milo made his screen debut. Milo, who played the lead in this independent film, was just 12 years old.

In the movie, Milo portrayed the role of “Tom Thompson.” The novel “Ghosthunters and the Extremely Revolting Ghost” by Cornelia Funke served as the inspiration for the film.
He appeared in Tim Burton’s fantasy movie “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” in 2016. Eva Green played the lead in the film. Besides Samuel L Jackson and Judi Dench, the film also featured Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, Ella Purnell, and Judi Dench.
Ransom Riggs’ 2011 book of the same name served as the inspiration for the movie. Hugh Apiston, a youngster with bees residing in his gut, was the character Milo played. The movie had its international premiere at the 2016 Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, and made over $296 million overall.
Soon after, Milo was cast as the young “Gerry Durrell,” a character based on the well-known British biologist, zoologist, environmentalist, and novelist Gerald Durrell. This role was in the British comedy series “The Durrells.” To prevent animal extinction, Gerald established the “Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust” in 1963. The three autobiographical novels by Gerald that he wrote about his time with his family on the Greek island of Corfu are the basis for the three-part television series.
On April 3, 2016, the first episode of the series aired, and people seemed to enjoy it. Together with Josh O’Connor and Keeley Hawes, Milo starred in it. In the series, Keeley played Louisa Durrell, Gerald’s mother, who moved to Corfu with her four kids due to financial difficulties. The show is currently in its third season.
The character of Milo in the series is an animal-obsessed young man who is older than his years. As he gets older, he builds his own zoo and makes friends with other animal lovers. Milo found interacting with the animals on the scene to be a little daunting at first. He recalls that the pelicans nearby made him feel the most uneasy. On the set, he was also bitten by an oyster, but he kept working. He eventually started to love being around the animals and felt at ease with them.
