Actor, Stars Of Tomorrow, 2009.

Tom Hughes

Hughes has done well in his first year out of drama school. Leaving Rada early to film the ITV series Trinity, he went straight into a lead role as a driven young doctor in the BBC’s Casualty 1909, and then nabbed his first feature film roles.

He plays musician Chaz Jankel in Mat Whitecross’ just-wrapped film about singer Ian Dury, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and plays one of the three leads in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s Cemetery Junction, which is now filming in London. “When you leave drama school, you hope you¹ll at least be working but that I’m working on such fantastic projects is wonderful,” says Hughes. “These are the kinds of films I want to watch and the kinds of films I want to make.”
