British singer and songwriter Louis Tomlinson shot to fame as a member of the boy band One Direction. He was a former student at Hall Cross School where he appeared in several musical productions, including the lead role of Danny Zuko in the school’s musical production of “Grease.” These performances played a role in boosting Tomlinson’s ambition to appear in the small screen and audition for the British talent competition series “The X Factor.”
He appeared in the ITV film drama “If I Had You” and BBC’s “Waterloo Road.”
In 2009, Tomlinson auditioned for “The X Factor” but failed to make the producer’s cut. He returned the following year where he failed to make it at the “Boys” category but landed instead on the “Groups” category where he was grouped with future One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horam. They called themselves One Direction.
One Direction won third place and was signed by producer Simon Crowell, who’s also one of “The X Factor” judges, to a reported £2 million Syco Records record contract. The boy band quickly rose to immense popularity and was even often described as the new act of “British Invasion” in the US. They released five albums, won several awards and went on four worldwide tours.
After the band’s split, Tomlinson served as a guest judge on “The X Factor” in 2015. In the same year, he also created his own record label, Triple Strings, Ltd., and was also reported to have started the management and mentoring of his currently nameless girl group.
He picked up his singing career the following year with the release of his debut single “Just Hold On,” a collaboration with American DJ Steve Aoki. Tomlinson dedicated the song to his late mother, who passed away in December of the same year after a short battle with leukemia.
Tomlinson has a son named Freddie Rein with his ex-girlfriend stylist Brianna Jungwirth.
