Birmingham’s edition of The Tab has since confirmed sightings of Hempstead Wright with current students at the university who say they spotted the actor at various locations on campus.
He is reportedly studying Maths and staying at the university’s newest halls, Chamberlain.
So far the actor’s been spotted both on nights out and at various locations on campus, including the sports fair.
Harry Mackenzie told The Tab he saw Hempstead Wright while he was working at the Student’s Union bar – Joe’s Bar.
He said: “I saw him walk past a couple of times and I served two customers that sat near him. It was a society and they were sat with him.”
The lunchtime sighting at Joe’s Bar was corroborated by Matt Cleary, a UoB graduate, who told the Tab: “I saw him across the bar, I wasn’t sure it was him at first but then the bartender confirmed it for me. Holy shit winter is here.”
That afternoon Hasan Ayub, a second-year student, reported seeing the star getting mobbed at the sports fair.
“He was walking out of the sports centre about 2pm,” he told The Tab.
Early reports that the actor had enrolled at the university initially surfaced on Twitter on Tuesday, September 19.
Having confirmed sightings of Hempstead Wright with fellow students, The Tab searched Birmingham’s university email, which revealed an option to send him a message. The actor is reportedly staying at the university’s newest halls, Chamberlain accommodation.
And people are getting pretty excited on Twitter…
