They spent three years in which the future actor attended school in Bristol. He was a good student, and was particularly fond of the story. The reason for the frequent travels of the family – the profession of his father. He worked in the computer industry, and he had to move often. With him, of course, I traveled the whole family – wife, son and daughter. In the end, the family, which grew Hugo settled in Australia. There’s a young man graduated from grammar school in Sydney.
