“I wasn’t a good kid in school. I wasn’t a bad kid. I just didn’t focus. My grades weren’t good. I mucked around, you know, a phase everyone went through.”Dacre Montgomery
Dacre was born in 1994 in Perth, Western Australia. At the age of 10 he had his first role as an extra in a short film and decided that he would pursue a career as an actor.
He began comprehensive acting classes at the age of 12 with a local training school and also with a theatre company and throughout this period was often working in advanced class groups where he was exposed to working and training alongside young adults.
Dacre has always admired Hugh Jackman, who graduated from WAAPA and lived in Perth during his years at University. He has also has great admiration for Heath Ledger, who grew up in Perth and who inspired him to believe that he too could make it all the way to Hollywood.
After a grueling audition process Dacre was accepted into WAAPA to undertake his 3 year Bachelor of Arts in Acting. He graduated with his degree in 2015 on the day of his 21st birthday and knew within weeks that he would be filming 3 projects (A Few Less Men, Safe Neighbourhood and Power Rangers) over the next 6 months.
Even though it was filmed in his homeland of Australia, Better Watch Out (2016) marked his acting debut in an American film, as well as his first major film credit.

In May 23th, Dacre starred the full promo of H&M x Stranger Things Collection which now is sold out.
“I came from drama school, and it’s a group of 18 people working together in every single production and splitting up the roles for three years, so I am very much about the team.”Dacre Montgomery
