“I was on one of the big red buses with the poster on the side of the bus—the Enola Holmes poster,” he recalled. “So they started popping up all around London which was weird, like, hopping onto a bus with my little face like on the side.”
“I think it came out at 8AM here but everywhere all over the world on Netflix, so I was at the back with a few of my mates and we just cheered.”
The Netflix star had no idea what this big moment in his life really meant for him till later, when he was in “Games Period,”—kinda like PE over here—and saw his Instagram starting to pop off.
“At the start of Games, I had like 200,000, and at the end, I had like 600,000 followers,” he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I was making bets with my mates to see how much it would go up and I had no idea it would get this crazy.”
For context, Louis Partridge’s Instagram is now followed by 5,600,000 people.
Despite being a big name movie star, Partridge said that his everyday life is still the same. “I was cleaning leaves out of the gutter yesterday for a bit of pocket money. My rate is ten pound an hour but after the film I sort of upped it a bit,” he joked.
“I get called Lord Farquad for the hair [at school],” Partridge added. “It’s not like they’re star struck. I literally get the p**s taken out of me, which probably keeps me grounded.”
