Bill Nighy and Bradley Cooper are both up for Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Play at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, but some oddsmakers predict the prize could go to a younger competitor—25-year-old Alexander Sharp—a British actor who’s a recent graduate of the the Julliard School.

He plays a 15-year-old math genius who may have Asperger’s syndrome in the British play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. He has received rave reviews, as has the production itself.

Sharp is delighted to have earned a Tony nomination.

“It’s just a huge honor to get this recognition,” he says. “It’s just unbelievable and a beautiful surprise.”

Even if he doesn’t win the play itself and its director Marianne Elliott may well go home with Tony trophies.

This should be the player used to embed videos.
