Albert Goodwin is a young British actor. Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism is his first feature film.
Albert was a sweetie and very excited by playing the part of Jinx. In fact he used to get so excited that he’d jump up and down on the spot very fast. He melts the hearts of the mums in the audience. I love it when he comes running over the hill shouting “Molly, Molly, come quickly! Wocky’s been adopted!”
