Aaron Johnson (born 13 June 1990) is an English actor, whose professional work includes performances on stage, television, and in feature films. He began performing at age six, and appeared in films such as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging and The Illusionist before graduating to starring roles in films such as Nowhere Boy, in which he played John Lennon, and the superhero movie Kick-Ass, which is scheduled for 2010 release.

Aaron Johnson was born 13 June 1990 in Holmer Green, Buckinghamshire, England.

Johnson began acting at the age of 6, performing as the son of Macduff alongside Rufus Sewell’s Macbeth in 1999, and in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons in 2000. His TV roles have included his turn as Niker in the BBC's 2004 adaptation of the novel Feather Boy and Owen in the E4 series, Nearly Famous. In 2006, Johnson appeared in The Illusionist, appearing in the flashback scenes in the beginning of the film as Edward Norton's character as a teenager, Eduard Abramovicz. The scenes show the young Eduard as he first learns magic, and to do this, Johnson himself learned how to perform the ball trick displayed by his character. He also learned how to perform the balancing of the egg on the stick, although that was effected mechanically. Johnson subsequently appeared as the heartthrob in the 2008 teen comedy Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Lorimer Black in Armadillo, and Prosper in The Thief Lord.
