Having made his first big-screen appearance back in 2012 in Naughty Room (which he also wrote, directed and shot), Jarvis has had an explosive past 12 months, starring in British indie hit Lady Macbeth (for which he earned a BIFA most promising newcomer nomination) and adding his name to a host of hot projects.

He'll star in Adewale Akinnyoye's-Agbaje's Farming, Hunter Killer, alongside Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman, and Alex Garland's next film, Annihilation, alongside Natalie Portman.

But if he could name just one director he'd love to work with, it's Paul Thomas Anderson. "I really love his creations, his work hits me in the head and heard like nothing else," he says. "But, saying that, I also love Terry Gilliam, Bela Tarr, Agnes Hranitzky, Mel Gibson, Milos Forman, Clint Eastwood, Duncan Jones, Ricky Gervais, Lars Von Trier... ahh there are loads."
