He won the role of Carl Gallagher in the series “Shameless” when he was just 13. The show, which told about the life of children from a large family, left by their mother to an alcoholic father, became incredibly popular. It was on air for 11 seasons.
Elliot played Carl together with his twin brother Luke in several episodes. But later Luke left the show, and Carl was portrayed exclusively by Elliot. The actor grew up with his character.
He skillfully depicted David Threlfall’s screen son Carl. In the beginning, Elliot’s character was a teenager with all typical for that age problems. Later he grew into a handsome guy. Being the victim of his too active libido, he was extremely promiscuous. Carl had affairs with any of the surrounding girls and even with their mothers. He did not hesitate to take money for “love”.
Such a loveable character brought handsome actor Elliott Tittensor initial fame. He became a teen star in England and abroad.

Among Elliott’s recent screen projects is his appearance on the Game of Thrones prequel “House of the Dragon”. He portrayed Ser Erryk Cargyll, the knight from the Kingsguard. He supported the right of Princess Rhaenys (Emma D’Arcy) to the throne, so he stole the golden crown of King Viserys I (Paddy Considine) and brought it to her.
