Antonia Campbell-Hughes Selected as 'Star of Tomorrow'
01 Jul 2011 :
Antonia Campbell-Hughes
Northern Irish actress Antonia Campbell-Hughes has been selected as one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow 2011. The young actors and filmmakers were selected by Screen’s writer and film critic Fionnuala Halligan as the hottest rising talents in the UK.

Campbell-Hughes stars in Rebecca Daly’s ‘The Other Side of Sleep’ which screened at Cannes as part of the prestigious Directors Fortnight selection earlier this year. Antonia Campbell-Hughes plays the lead role of Arlene; a sleepwalker since childhood who works in the local factory of the rural Irish town she grew up in. When a young woman is found dead in the woods, Arlene is reminded of her own mothers disappearance 20 years previously and is drawn to the girl’s accused boyfriend and grieving sister. Depriving herself of sleep, Arlene finds herself in emotional turmoil as her sleeping and waking realities soon blur. Screen described her performance in ‘The Other Side of Sleep’ as “intense” and as an “internalised performance”.

Antonia Campbell-Hughes is in the company of other promising stars on Screen’s list including Elliot Knight of Sky1’s ‘Sinbad’, Richard Madden from HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ and John Boyega from ‘Attack the Block’. Previous Screen International Stars of Tomorrow include Emily Blunt, James McAvoy and Dominic Cooper.

Campbell-Hughes was shortlisted for the IFTA Rising Star Award earlier this year and previously appeared in Jack Dee’s BBC series ‘Lead Balloon’, Neil Jordan’s ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ and Alexandra McGuinness ‘Lotus Eaters’ which will be screening at next week's Galway Film Fleadh. Antonia can be seen in Rodrigo García’s upcoming drama ‘Albert Nobbs’ and in the fourth season of ‘Lead Balloon’ which will is currently showing on BBC Two.

Editor of Screen International Mike Goodridge commented on the Stars pick saying “As usual, our UK Stars Of Tomorrow comprise a dazzling, diverse group of talented young actors and filmmakers who will go on to do great things.”
