charming titular vet in Young James Herriot for the BBC, which lines him up as a national-treasure-in-waiting.

LETITIA WRIGHT Arriving in London with her mother at the age of six, Guyana-born Letitia Wright first fell in love with acting at her Finsbury Park primary school when she got the opportunity to play a young Rosa Parks onstage. “I felt so comfortable,” she recalls. “I


even did the whole American accent!” Now an outgoing 18 and sitting her


A-level exams, Wright has chased her passion with a passion. Drama school every Saturday was followed by sending her self-made tape to every agent in London until she finally got a callback. Small parts in the long-running BBC


TV drama Holby City were followed by a strong impact in last year’s Channel 4 drama Top Boy, and Wright displayed a graceful ease in Sally El Hosaini’s urban drama My Brother The Devil. After she finishes her exams, bigger


things will almost certainly follow. “I will definitely be going to drama school,” she says. “I will definitely be getting a degree. I’ve made a conscious decision that I’m in this to do good work and I want a long career. I want to be respected.” She’s already there.

Hart studied English literature and film at King’s College London and followed
