Re­cently mud­died up for An­drea Arnold’s re­vi­sion­ist take on Wuther­ing Heights. A cast mem­ber on the con­tro­ver­sial TV show Skins, she will shortly ap­pear along­side Jes­sica Biel in Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes.

Beat off strong com­pe­ti­tion to take the Bafta Ris­ing Star award ear­lier this year. Dea­con re­cently di­rected and starred in the gritty youth movie Anu­va­hood. Much is ex­pected from the Hack­ney boy.

The some­time Holly Grainger has sud­denly be­gun pop­ping up ev­ery­where. Plays the young Estella in Mike Newell’s up­com­ing adap­ta­tion of Great Ex­pec­ta­tions. Re­cently shone in The Scout­ing Book for Boys and Jane Eyre.

An­other Skins grad­u­ate, the Derby lad has been in the news for dat­ing some­body called Tulisa. Will shortly be seen in Pat O’con­nor’s ver­sion of the Michael Mur­purgo novel Pri­vate Peace­ful.

Only 19, he has al­ready been the best thing in three very dif­fer­ent pic­tures: Son of Ram­bow, The Voy­age of the Dawn Treader and the re­cent, un­fairly over­looked Wild Bill.
