Born in London, England, Callum Turner grew up in the Chelsea neighborhood of that same city. Turner initially began his career as a model, booking his first campaign in 2010 and working for companies like Reebok and Next plc. Turner shifted his priorities from modeling to acting in 2011, stating that his mother instilled in him a love of film, and gave him the impetus to attempt acting as a career. In 2011 he starred in the movie "Zero", directed by David Barrouk. In 2012 Turner appeared in a short film entitled "Human Beings", directed by Jonathan Entwistle. In 2012 Turner made his debut on the small screen in two ITV series, "Leaving" and "The Town". "Leaving" focuses on the relationship between a mother and son, while "The Town" focuses on the dramas and corruption in a small English town.

In 2014 it was announced that Turner would appear in Paul McGuigan's movie "Victor Frankenstein".
