Auditioned for Scott Summers/Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), but turned the role down.
His name, "Taron", is a version of the traditional Welsh name, "Taran", which means "thunder". His name came from a spelling mistake on his mother's part, putting an "o" instead of the second "a".
Fell in love with acting as a teen after performing in his first production, A Midsummer's Night Dream, in which he played Flute, the cross-dressing Mechanical.
First movie he saw at the theatre was Bambi.
Won the Stephen Sondheim Society 'Student Performer of the Year' 2011 when he was 21 years old.
