Early Life and Career Beginnings

In 2012, he got his first acting project as Juno in the short film entitled “Down the Way” – it tells the story of two lifelong friends who come to terms with how much they are drifting apart. The film was released digitally through YouTube and gained a bit of attention. He then worked on the short film entitled “Yes Mum”, portraying the character Ryan in the story which follows a ‘phone call from character Andrew to his mother. The film was one of the two winners of the Make a Film, Make a Difference (MAFMAD) competition.

Rise to Fame

As Hope continued to take on acting projects, more opportunities came his way, and in 2014 he was cast in the mini-series entitled “Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS”, a biographical film about the Australian rock band called INXS – pronounced ‘in excess’ – from their start in Australia playing locally up to their national fame. The band became known for their new wave/pop style but later developed a pub rock sound with elements of funk and dance. The band released numerous hit singles such as “Original Sin”, “What You Need”, “Devil Inside”, and “Never Tear Us Apart”.

Some of their songs gained international acclaim, but they mainly stayed popular within their country. After the death of lead vocalist Michael Hutchence, the group struggled to find a new lead singer, leading to their announcement of a last performance in 2012. The group has won six Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards over the course of their run.

Descendants and Sequels

After his work in the mini-series, he then gained international fame with his work in the Disney Original movie entitled “Descendants”. For the role, he had to move to the US with several of his family members for filming. “Descendants” is a musical fantasy television movie released in 2015, directed by Kenny Ortega. Mitchell starred in the film alongside Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, and Cameron Boyce. The film follows the story of the teenage children of Disney villains such as Maleficent and Cruella de Vil. These teenagers have to learn to adjust to life outside the island prison, while on a secret mission to steal the Fairy Godmother’s wands to free their parents from captivity. He played the role of the son of Belle and the Beast from “Beauty and the Beast”.

The movie proved successful and got positive reviews along with 6.6 million viewers. Soon, a CGI animated short-form series was created called “Descendants: Wicked World” which picks up after the film. The film actors reprise their roles in voicing their characters for its two seasons. A second film was then created called “Descendants 2” which was released in 2017. The movie got more viewers than its predecessor, and gained a huge positive rating. A third film is currently in production and is set to be released on Disney Channel in August 2019.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, it is known that Hope is in a relationship with actress Tayla Audrey. She is best known for her work in the feature film entitled “Chloe Lives”, in which she portrayed the titular character. He has also been romantically linked to co-star Dove Cameron due to their work together in the movie “Descendants 2”.
