Hello Ansel fans! Sorry for the lack of updates on the site. I’ve been super busy and it’s been hard to find the time to update. I’ve now updated the gallery of Ansel visiting Kuala Lumpur on July 17th. He attended a photocall, press conference, and premiere!

I have updated the gallery with portraits Ansel has taken during his promotion for Baby Driver. Two of them took place during his recent visit to Australia to promote the film.

LA TIMES – Ansel Elgort was deep into a club music period when he found himself on the spot during a pivotal audition for director Edgar Wright.

He’d been spending his spare time in the studio with Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, living and breathing the electronic dance jams he makes under his DJ moniker, Ansølo. But in his day job as a rising Hollywood star, he hadn’t yet convinced Wright he was right for the role of the soft-spoken, rhythm-obsessed lead of “Baby Driver,” a music-driven action caper 22 years in the making.

As Elgort worked in the Silver Lake dance studio of choreographer and Sia collaborator Ryan Heffington, things weren’t totally clicking. Then Wright asked the “Fault in Our Stars” and “Divergent” actor to name a song he knew by heart. Elgort surprised the director with “Easy,” by the Commodores.

“I was so taken aback that a 20-year-old would say that, that in itself made me think that maybe he was right for the part,” says Wright, who filmed Elgort acting out a scene to the song, which eventually became the soundtrack to a memorably moving sequence and the film’s recurring emotional motif.

NY TIMES – When the actor Ansel Elgort strolled into Times Square on Wednesday for an appearance on ”Good Morning America,” the first face he encountered was his own.

“I’ve never seen myself so big,” he said, staring up at a bright pink billboard for his new movie, “Baby Driver,” which was opening that day to rapturous reviews. “Good morning, America!”

Mr. Elgort’s latest star turn is a heist picture about a guy operating a getaway car for bank robbers, but he had sat passively in the back seat of an Escalade on the ride to Midtown from his home in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. It had been a slow trip, more than a half-hour just to get across the Williamsburg Bridge and up to the ABC studios, where a small group of his devoted fans were waiting outside the stage door for him to arrive and administer hugs and selfies.

Normally, Mr. Elgort, 23, would just have taken the C train. Or perhaps used Citi Bike.

“I have an account,” he said.

Limousines, in other words, are not his speed.

Three years ago, Mr. Elgort became something of a teen idol when he and Shailene Woodley played terminally ill cancer patients falling in love in the movie adaptation of John Green’s best-selling young adult novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” which grossed $307 million at the global box office.
The fact that Mr. Elgort in real life is still with his high school sweetheart — Violetta Komyshan, a ballet dancer he met while still a student at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts — has not dampened the ardor of his female followers, virtual and physical.

Mr. Elgort is their hipster ideal: a guy who looks like a model, gets paid like a movie star (more on that in a moment) and actually wants commitment in real life. Basically, said Tatiana Irizarry, standing outside “G.M.A.,” he is “the best person ever.”

Ms. Irizarry’s opinion is unlikely to change after she sees “Baby Driver.”

The film is a testosterone-drenched star vehicle promising to broaden Mr. Elgort’s appeal — it was on track to earn around $20 million in its opening weekend — without alienating his fan base. Fittingly, the title character, named Baby, is quickly revealed to be not a hardened delinquent, but a conscientious and oh-so-romantic orphan struggling to pay off a childhood debt and help his aged, deaf African-American foster parent build a nest egg.

Baby’s got nowhere to run, to quote the Martha and the Vandellas classic that appears on the much-buzzed-about retro soundtrack. But he still does the Harlem Shuffle while delivering Starbucks coffee to the slick crime world overlord for whom he works, played with venom by Kevin Spacey.

Growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Mr. Elgort had a few more advantages than his character.

Ansel Elgort is ready to ride. With his latest feature film Baby Driver and an upstart music career, the 23-year-old actor/dancer/musician is firmly hunkered down in Hollywood’s driver’s seat, testing the limits of both what he can do and shifting gears before getting too comfortable.

If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he comes from a line of artistic provenance. His father, Arthur Elgort, is a legendary fashion photographer whose work has lined the pages of Vogue for the past 45 years, and his mother, Grethe Barrett Holby, is a highly respected opera director and choreographer. Watching Elgort on screen transports you to a bygone era of the matinee idol: his deliberate, low voice and classically handsome looks are reminiscent of old Hollywood.

Elgort jumped onto the screen and into our teen-girl fantasies with starring roles in the Divergent franchise and The Fault in Our Stars. Calling him a “heartthrob” is no understatement. The actor is so beloved, the wooden bench that he kissed The Fault in Our Stars co-star Shailene Woodley on in Amsterdam went missing after the film, presumably stolen by Ansølo-crazed fans (his track-spinning pseudonym). With only a handful of feature films under his belt, Elgort has quickly risen to the top. While he’s known for his work in the Young Adult genre, he’s dovetailing that with meatier, more serious roles where he can really flex his muscles, both literally and figuratively.

Swerving out of the YA lane is his role in Baby Driver, a high- speed, car chase movie that lands somewhere between action and crime genres with a musical twist. Sounds unique? It sure is. Directed by Edgar Wright, also behind the cult-classic Shaun of the Dead, the film casts Elgort as Baby, a “strong but silent type” getaway driver. Although Baby is a man of few words, he is never without a pair of headphones—listening to a personal soundtrack at all times in order to drown out the tinnitus he developed as a child, caused by a fatal car crash that took his parents’ lives. “What makes him an interesting character is that you see him in a lot of different situations,” reasons Elgort. “You don’t just see him with the crime crew, you see him at home, with his foster dad, you see him in the diner with [love interest] Deborah. That’s where you really get to know who he is.”
