Early Life

He has three older sisters and was raised in the neighboring towns of Benson and Brightwell-cum-Sotwell. A “cooperative of four brilliant women and a dad who has an incredible work ethic” was how he characterized his childhood. When he was five years old, his grandmother took him to watch a London performance of Oliver!. Because of that’s when he realized he wanted to be an actor. He played a raindrop in his very first on-stage role in a primary school production of Noah’s Ark.

Bailey took dance classes at the neighborhood’s Benson Primary School, which is associated with the Church of England, and later at The Oratory School. Later, he attended Oxford’s Magdalen College School on a music scholarship, where he studied clarinet and piano. He eventually turned down an acceptance offer from a university and decided not to attend drama school after finding a talent agency at the age of fifteen and landing acting roles. He later claimed that this decision kept him grounded in the performing arts: “I’ve never gone in as the overdog, and that’s liberating and I don’t want that to ever change.” I just want to allow my own experiences to come through.”
