From Bafta - On Tuesday 12 January at BAFTA Headquarters, this year's Orange Rising Star Award nominations were announced by the 2009 winner, Noel Clarke.
The Orange Rising Star Award recognises five international actors and actresses who have demonstrated exceptional talent and have begun to capture the imagination of the public as a star in the making.
The winner will be announced at the Orange British Academy Film Awards on Sunday 21 February 2010.
About the Award
The Orange Rising Star Award was established in 2006 in honour of Mary Selway, the highly-respected, BAFTA-winning British casting director who died in 2004. Now in its fifth year, the Award has set a standard for identifying up-and-coming acting talent in the film industry. The accolade remains unique as the only award at the Orange British Academy Film Awards to be voted for by the public.
