Published in this week's Screen International, the annual talent survey highlights the brightest actors, directors, writers, producers and behind-the-scenes talent in the UK. More than 40 new names are profiled, coming from shorts, documentaries, drama and film school, the stage and television.
There are 15 actors profiled in the issue. Among them are: Dan Stevens and Hayley Atwell, who recently gained rave reviews for their performances in the BBC TV adaptation of The Line Of Beauty; Rebecca Hall, who stars in the forthcoming Starter For Ten and The Prestige; Nichola Burley, who stars with Colin Firth and Robert Carlyle in Dominic Savage's soon to crank-up London; and Nonso Anozie, who has received plaudits for his stage work and stars in Joe Wright's Atonement, which is shooting now based on the best-selling book by Ian McEwan.
Directors and writers tipped include: Daniel Mulloy, whose Antonio's Breakfast won this year's BAFTA for best live action short; John Williams, winner of best short at Edinburgh last year for Hibernation; and Lucy Moore, who wrote the BAFTA-winning short Gone and the soon-to-be aired Heavenly Father on Channel 4.
Last year's Stars Of Tomorrow shone the spotlight on such names as: Mia Bays, who produced this year's Oscar-winning short Six Shooter; Jaime Winstone who starred in the recently-released Kidulthood; and Tom Sturridge, who has signed a three picture deal with 20th Fox to star in Doug Liman's Jumper.
The class of 2004 included Andrea Arnold, who was hailed as the discovery of this year's Cannes for her debut feature Red Road.
