Early life

Booth was born in London, England, the son of Vivien, an artist, and a father who works in shipping for Citigroup. His father is of English descent and his mother is of Spanish and Dutch ancestry. In an interview with Vogue UK, Booth reflected on his struggle with dyslexia, stating, "I struggled with dyslexia when I was young, so I knew that whatever I did it wouldn't be academic. Then playing Agamemnon - well, at the age of 12 - I thought 'I rather like being the centre of attention', this is where I want to be."
