Asa Butterfield was born on 1 April 1997 in Islington, London. He attends a local after-school drama class once a week called the Young Actors Theatre. Butterfield is also a keen musician and plays the piano (pretty well) and the guitar (not so well). He enjoys singing and recorded a song in 2003 which he entered in XFM's Rock School. He won a Fender guitar and his track was played out on the radio. He has two cats and one older brother, Morgan, with whom he plays lots of games – he likes the fighting ones best. During the long summer break his favourite holidays are those spent with his cousins and brother when he can spend all day swimming. Prior to THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS, Butterfield had small parts in two films: Son of Rambow and After Thomas. A young Butterfield can be seen on the cover of Better than Working, an autobiography by Patrick Skene Catling.
