Parkinson began as a child actor. By the age of seven, he had already started to take on roles for film productions. His first movie role was his role as Young Kenneth in the horror movie Freakdog in 2008, and similarly, he played the role of Peter in the Irish horror movie Dark Touch. One could assume that the young Irish actor has a sense of horror and quite intense movies. In 2014 he was cast for Gary Shore’s dark fantasy epic Dracula Untold. Parkinson played the (main) role of Ollie. His role was that of a ten-year-old boy who is hit by a major earthquake in California. While playing the intense role, Art acted side by side with one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors and former professional wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as “The Rock”. The A-actor profile did not intimidate him, so he describes his experience with him as amazing, funny, and enlightening. He also worked with Paul Giamatti when he was working on the project in the United States.
He has starred in other films such as Anomaly, Shooting for Socrates, Zoo, San Andreas, and Love, Rosie. Art Parkinson was the voice of Kubo in Travis Knight’s Kubo and the Two Strings, where he worked alongside award-winning actors such as Matthew McConaughey and Charlize Theron. His role in the film earned him an Annie Award nomination for the best dubbing actor in 2016.
Parkinson’s fame came with his first and only television role to date in the HBO series Game of Thrones. In the role of Rickon Stark, Parkinson served as a sibling of Arya Stark, who was played brilliantly by Maisie Williams. The brilliant voice actor joined the Game of Thrones team in 2011. After 14 episodes, it was announced that he would not be returning for season 5 alongside Natalie Tena, who played the role of Osha.
