He became interested in playing ice hockey at the age of five when he also started taking lessons, and as soon as he enrolled at a high school in Dallas, he started playing for the school’s team.

The story follows a depressed teenager who gets an opportunity to start anew after checking into an adult psychiatric ward – the movie was nominated for two awards.
In 2012, Thomas played Roosevelt in the teen comedy movie “Fun Size”, written by Max Werner, however, he only gained recognition in the following year after portraying Ben Wosser in the critically acclaimed horror movie “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”, which was both written and directed by Tommy Wirkola, and starred Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Peter Stormare.

According to the rumors, the two met at a party and started dating around a month later – they were seen walking hand in hand in the streets of Los Angeles on multiple occasions, but they broke up after three months for unknown reasons.
It was reported on 15 September 2020 that Thomas Mann and his current non-celebrity girlfriend were spotted together while looking to buy an engagement ring – Thomas has been contacted by various magazines who want to know whether or not he is marrying the girl, however, Thomas has only responded with ‘no comment’.
