The actor was raised and brought up in London and studied in a boarding school named Beadles. From a young age, Bower was highly fascinated by music, so he started taking singing lessons at the age of eight.
However, he left his last semester as he got an opportunity to work on a movie. His very first role was given for the historic film Alice in Wonderland.
There, he was portrayed as the French Mouse. His parents fully supported and understood each of his interests and ambitions. The actor’s mother, Anne, is a music manager, and his father, David, works for Gibson Guitars.
Both of Bower’s mentors belonged to this industry which aided him in growing along. The actor has immense respect and love stored in his heart towards his parents.
As per London Evening Standard, when Bower was asked about his parents, he stated, “My parents realized I had this wish to be a performer, so they nurtured that side of me. I joined the local youth theatre, got very heavily involved, and did every production until age 16.”
By then, he had also tried his hands at modeling, making a pretty decent earning. After then, he was gradually unveiled to the entertainment industry, where his parents also played a huge role.
