Theo has recently been having a very busy time, having starred in The Time Traveler's Wife. He bowed out of Sanditon season two after the show announced a comeback. Speaking about the reasons why, he explained: "Although I relished playing Sidney, for me, I've always maintained that his journey concluded as I wanted it to.

"The broken fairytale-like ending between Charlotte and Sidney is different, unique and so interesting to me and I wish the cast and crew every success with future series."
