Louis Tomlinson was born in Doncaster as Louis Troy Austin on December 24, 1991. Louis had originally dabbled as an actor, appearing as an extra in Waterloo Road, although it was his audition as part of 2010’s The X Factor which changed all that. Louis was offered to be part of a group put together by the programme called One Direction, who didn’t actually win that year’s contest, but became the show’s biggest success becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Following the band’s hiatus announcement in 2016, Louis collaborated with Steve Aoki on his debut solo song Just Hold On. Louis has also been signed by Football League Championship team Doncaster Rovers on a non-contract basis.
