Robbie Kay's family moved to the Czech Republic where he saw a note for English-speaking children to be extras in a film on a school noticeboard. Despite a lack of previous acting experience, this led to him getting a speaking part in The Illusionist, but his scenes were eventually cut from the film.
After small roles in Hannibal Rising and My Boy Jack, a Canadian production company asked him to play the part of Young Jakob which involved a 9-week shooting schedule, three of which were on Greek islands. The people who made Fugitive Pieces had auditioned over 150 boys before finding the then 10-year-old Robbie Kay who had been living in Prague for two years.
He spent a year studying acting, singing, and dancing at one of Britain's Stagecoach theater schools.
He appeared in a miniseries adaptation of Pinocchio, playing the title character. After finishing Pinocchio he went on to play Sam, a boy diagnosed with leukemia in Ways To Live Forever screening in late 2010.
He appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, playing the Cabin boy. More recently, he portrayed Peter Pan in season 3 of Once Upon a Time.
