Tobie Donovan is an English actor and vlogger, best known for portraying Isaac Henderson in the Netflix series Heartstopper, which began airing in 2022.
Donovan’s journey into acting began at a young age in Bath, where he trained at the Bath Academy Theatre. While he initially aimed for a career in theatre, an open casting call for the Netflix series Heartstopper changed his trajectory. Landing the role of Isaac Henderson, a character that confronts his asexuality in the second season, Donovan quickly captured the audience’s attention. During the series’ first season, he provided an intriguing look into the production through his YouTube vlogs, even receiving a Silver Play YouTube Creator Award for surpassing 100,000 subscribers.
His foray into the world of streaming not only gave him recognition but also led to collaborative moments with several artists and influencers. In Heartstopper, he has shared the screen with co-stars like Joe Locke, who plays Charlie, William Gao as Tao, and Yasmin Finney as Elle. In addition, his character has meaningful interactions with James McEwan, played by Bradley Riches. Between the first and second seasons of Heartstopper, he demonstrated his theatrical roots by performing in Paper Cut at the Park Theatre. Off-screen, Tobie Donovan’s YouTube vlogging adventure received a significant boost when his castmate, Kit Connor, gifted him a camera to continue his behind-the-scenes documentation.
Donovan’s work on Heartstopper hasn’t gone unnoticed. The show itself has received nominations at ceremonies such as the Dorian Awards for Best LGBTQ Show and Best TV Drama. His YouTube channel, which provides an inside look at his Heartstopper journey, is nearing 200,000 subscribers.
