The Spotlight Showcase is a great example of our passion for young acting talent. Each of the actors has been nominated by their schools as the best actor in this year’s graduating class.

The screen performances were directed by Alexandra Boyd. Alexandra’s varied career in theatre, film and television as an actress, singer, voice over and now screenwriter and director, spans over thirty five years. She lived in Los Angeles for ten years. During her time there her credits include Mr Holland’s Opus, James Cameron’s Titanic and From Paris with Love with John Travolta. After returning to the UK in 2006 and a stint on Coronation Street, she transitioned to writing and directing. Her debut feature film is a ghost story set on the Suffolk coast called Widow’s Walk and stars Miranda Raison, David Caves and Virginia McKenna.
