Tom Hughes

According to, Hughes has even had Emma Watson’s seal of approval!

He is also set to appear in Page Eight in 2011. Other future works include Eight Minutes Idle scheduled for 2011 and Stay With Me in 2012.

Jessica Brown Findlay

Though she has not always been an actress, Findlay has always had a talent for something creative as she was invited to perform at the Royal Opera House at just 15-years-old, to dance with Kirov Ballet. When she could no longer dance after an ankle operation gone wrong, she took up acting. With a 15 episode run on the fabulous Downton Abbey – as Lady Sybil Crawley – she has definitely begun to make a name for herself and has more recently been featured in Albatross as Emelia.

Juno Temple

She’s already been touted as a one to watch in Hollywood by The Hollywood Reporter and her upcoming projects include The Brass Teapot (pre-production), The Dark Knight Rises, (now filming) and A Single Shot (also now filming).

A Single Shot has expected release of 2012 and could be an important break through for her as she will be starring alongside Orlando Bloom, Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Christoph Waltz, and Mads Mikkelsen.

Daniel Kaluuya

Daniel Kaluuya, educated at St. Aloysius Secondary School and National Youth Theatre was first noticed when seen he joined the original cast of Skins with a side role as Posh Kenneth.
