Career

After graduating from The MGA Academy of Performing Arts in the summer of 2015, Doherty began waiting tables in Edinburgh at Tigerlilly restaurant.[3] On his days off, Doherty split his time between auditioning for The Lodge and working with the Edinburgh Fringe.

Doherty was offered the role of Sean Matthews in The Lodge, and had to undergo intensive training in mountain biking to prepare for the role. The Lodge was filmed in Belfast, Northern Ireland. While Doherty's character is Scottish, Doherty focused on toning down his accent in order to better accommodate the viewers in all 108 countries that The Lodge aired in. In December 2016, The Lodge was renewed for a second season which began production in February 2017.

In 2016, Doherty auditioned for Descendants 2 and was cast as Harry Hook, the son of villain, Captain James Hook, from Peter Pan.
