Who is Josephine Langford?
Josephine was born in Perth, Western Australia, on 18 August 1997 – her zodiac sign is Leo, and she holds Australian nationality. She’s an actress with close to 20 credits to her name, probably known best for her portrayal of the lead character Tessa Young, in the 2019 romantic series “After”, written and directed by Jenny Gage based on Anna Todd’s eponymous novel, and which also starred Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Khadijha Red Thunder. It tells the story of a young woman who has fallen in love with a mysterious man, and the movie won four awards.
Early life and education
Josephine was raised in Applecross, Western Australia alongside her older sister Katherine by their father Stephen Langford, who’s working at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Western Operations as director of medical services, and their mother Elizabeth Green who’s a pediatrician. Josephine was mostly into music while growing up, and was nine when she began playing the saxophone; she eventually began taking piano and violin lessons as well. She was 10 when she wrote the song “Shadows”, and then performed it at a music competition, which won her an award for Song of the Year. Josephine also wrote the song “Lonely” in 2007, and “Sea Shanty” in 2008.
She completed her elementary school education in 2010, and enrolled at Perth Film School, from which she matriculated in 2016; Josephine then chose to pursue a career as an actress, rather than a college degree.

Josephine had made her debut film appearance in the 2013 short drama “Sex Ed”, and the following year saw her play Renae Armstrong in the short horror drama “Gypsy Blood”.

Awards and nominations
Josephine has won just a single award: a 2019 Teen Choice Award for Drama Movie Actress, for her performance in “After”.
Love life and boyfriend
Josephine prefers to keep the details of her love life away from the media’s attention, and hasn’t spoken of any boys or girls whom she’s perhaps been with. This is mostly why there are today various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her current relationship status and sexual orientation. Some of Josephine’s fans believe that the popular actress might today be in a relationship with famous British actor Hero Fiennes, alongside whom she starred in “After”; the two have been seen spending time together on a number of occasions, and while some believe that they’re romantically linked, others claim that they are only close friends. Still, neither Josephine nor Hero have addressed these rumors.
There are also those who think that Josephine is perhaps lesbian, but this hasn’t been confirmed either. As of June 2022, Josephine seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Josephine’s highly active on Instagram and is today followed by more than four million people on the network, while she’s uploaded only 15 pictures, most of which have been taken during her modelling photoshoots; it’s said that she occasionally finds time to answer to some of her fans’ questions. Josephine’s physically quite active, mostly because it’s important for her career to stay fit; she has several training sessions at the gym every week, thus her slim figure.
She’s into travelling, and has been to a couple of US states for both work and pleasure, while she’s also been to several European countries; her dream travel destination seems to be London, England. Josephine has her own favorite actors and actresses, some of whom are Al Pacino, Will Smith and Rosario Dawson, while a couple of her favorite films are “Independence Day”, “Scent of a Woman” and “Seven Pounds”.
