Early life, family, and education
Felix was born under the zodiac sign of Aries on 20 April 1998, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia; he is Australian, although he comes from a family of French descent.
He was raised by his parents, Dave and Jane Mallard, alongside his sister Tiana; Felix hasn’t shared any other details regarding his family.
When he was ten years old, Felix took up fencing, a group of three related combat sports including foil, epee and sabre. Subsequently, Felix competed at state and national levels; he won 5th place at the 2013 National Sabre Championship (under-15).
He was spotted by an agent as a youngster and signed with Australian modeling agency Vivien’s Models. Felix appeared in various advertisements, and when he was 15, his agent suggested he audition for an Australian television series.
Speaking of his educational background, he attended Christian Brothers College, where he completed the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) in 2015. Later, he completed a course in Technical Production.
Felix made his acting debut portraying Ben Kirk in the Australian soap opera “Neighbours”, created by Reg Watson, which follows the story of the lives and relationships of the Ramsay Street residents. Felix was seen in 854 episodes from 2014 until 2019.
Concurrently, he played the same role in “Neighbours: Xanthe Hearts Ben”, “Neighbours: Pipe Up”, and “Neighbours: Summer Stories”, all in 2016. In 2018, Felix was cast to play Cooper James in “Happy Together”, which was his debut in the US production series. His character was based on Harry Styles, a famous singer-songwriter, and former member of the boy band One Direction.
In 2020, Felix made his big-screen debut playing the role of Roamer in the romantic drama “All the Bright Places”, about Violet and Theodore who meet accidentally and permanently affect each other’s lives. As they struggle with the mental and physical wounds of their past, they find that even the most trivial places and experiences may have significant meaning. The movie won the ReFrame Stamp – Top 100 Most Popular Narrative & Animated Feature.
In the following year, Felix was cast to play Aiden in the Primetime Emmy-awarded series “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”, starring Jane Levy, Skylar Astin and Alex Newell.

From 2021 until 2022, Felix portrayed Marcus Baker, an enigmatic and jerky 15-year-old boy, in the series “Ginny & Georgia”, who after falling in love with Ginny becomes a better person.
Felix will be seen in the second season of this series, and his fans will be happy to hear that he finished the filming of the romantic drama movie, entitled “Turtles All the Way Down”, which is currently in development.
Love life and relationships
Like many celebrities, Felix was also the subject of numerous rumors about his love life and his sexual orientation, however, he hasn’t so far commented on these assumptions.
In one of his interviews, he said that his girlfriend was the first person to text him after releasing “Ginny & Georgie”, so many of his female fans were disappointed with the fact that he isn’t single.
It was rumored that his girlfriend is his co-star from “Neighbours”, Zoe Cramond, and people mostly commented about their age difference, since she is 14 years older than him. The two were often seen together, attending various red-carpet events, however, neither Zoe nor Felix confirmed (nor denied) these assumptions.
Another rumor was saying that Felix is dating Australian model Lucinda Everist, but he hasn’t commented about this either. What we do know is that they follow each other on Instagram.
As of October 2022, it seems that Felix is in a relationship, but hasn’t been engaged or married.
Less known details about Felix
When he was younger, he wanted to be a graphic designer.
For his role as Marcus in “Ginny & Georgie”, he had to learn American Sign Language (ASL) because his character’s father was deaf.
After work, he likes to walk his dog, have some delicious food, and ‘zen out’ with either TV or music.
Felix enjoys music, and learned to play guitar aged seven, and would practice listening to Jimi Hendrix, BB King, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He also plays the piano and drums, as well as singing in a local punk band called Enemies Alike.
When he first read the script for “Ginny & Georgie”, he didn’t like Marcus – he thought the character ‘mean and a bit of a jerk’. Now, what he most likes about this character is that he is a kind of an advocate for mental health since in the series, Marcus recognizes that he’s depressed and that he needs therapy. Felix thinks that this would help some teenagers who feel isolated and misunderstood to seek help.
