What age is Milly Alcock?

Milly Alcock is 20 years old and was born in Sydney, Australia, in 2000.

Alcock had a major decision to make, whether to carry on her school studies at 19 or take on an acting role in a Foxtel feature. Alcock dropped out of high school to pursue her acting career and took on a role in Upright.

Speaking about her decision to quit school, she said: “(School) just wasn’t for me. I didn’t really have any great teachers who saw me until I found acting was where I felt safe. So, yeah, it was the right decision.”

Milly was nominated for best comedy performer at the 2020 AACTA Awards but lost out to her co-star, Tim Minchin.

Who is Milly Alcock

Milly Alcock’s acting career began in earnest in 2014 with a single-episode appearance in TV series Wonderland.

She’s gone on to appear in some big TV roles such as Les Norton and The School.

Millie also starred in 2018 Netflix TV drama Pine Gap and 2019 series The Reckoning. Not to mention her part in Seven’s A Place To Call Home.

More recently she starred in Upright, which was released in 2019. She worked alongside Tim Minchin, which is a massive achievement in itself, and Milly will now star in the Game Of Thrones prequel.
