The Physician tells the story of Rob Cole (Tom Payne) who as a boy is left a penniless orphan in an 11th-century
English mining town when his mother dies of a mysterious illness. Vowing
to become a physician and vanquish death itself, he travels to Persia
to study medicine under the great Ibn Sina (Ben Kingsley). Through
countless ordeals and challenges, and making many sacrifices along the
way, he struggles on unwaveringly. His unflagging quest for knowledge
leads to the blossoming of friendship and true love.
Adam Thomas Wright (represented by Susie Earnshaw Management) plays the young Rob Cole as a boy. Adam has an impressive list of credits including The Awakening, and most recently CBBC's Stepping Up.
