Born in Essex, Kent started picking up acting roles in the 2000s. He went on to feature in a number of major hits including Game of Thrones and BBC soap EastEnders. In Game of Thrones, Kent appeared as a goatherder in a brief but memorable scene in the Season 4 finale. In “The Children” episode Kent’s character appeared before Daenerys with the charred body of his dead 3-year-old daughter to show her the destruction her unruly dragons had caused. Following the meeting, the queen chained up two of her dragons so they would not cause further harm.

His other credits included Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves and the BBC adaptation of Les Misérables.

Kent, who had a rare skin disorder, won Best Actor at the 2012 Van d`Or Independent Film Awards for his role in Sunny Boy. In the movie, he played a boy with a rare skin condition that prevents him from being in the sun and halts his desire to be a regular teenager.

He was also a writer-director, and he directed award-winning 2021 short You Know Me.
