Writer Fionnuala Halligan, who selected the Stars and interviewed each of them, said: “more and more names are submitted every year for inclusion in Stars of Tomorrow and it’s always a surprise to see for yourself just how much young talent is out there - we could have filled several magazines over, and the choice was hard. I think this year’s Stars of Tomorrow are very representative of Britain’s future film-makers and stars both in terms of where they have come from and where they want to go, and I look forward to following up with them and seeing how they progress.”
Screen Editor Mike Goodridge added: “This year’s Stars Of Tomorrow feature is a great read. It gives a snapshot of these amazing new actors, writers and filmmakers while also offering a broad picture of production in the UK today as well. Our Stars curator Fionnuala Halligan has done an amazing job, and I’d also like to thank our contributing experts Simon Curtis, Rebecca O’Brien and Pete Travis for their generous insights.”
