Critics are raving about Noah Jupe‘s performance in Shia LaBeouf’s HONEY BOY following its premiere at The Sundance Festival.
‘Jupe takes center stage…as a bonafide breakout’. A ‘subtle turn’ imbued with ‘a fiery confidence’. (IndieWire)
‘[Jupe’s] a child actor playing a child actor completely naturalistically, except for the scenes in which he purposefully overacts in his Disney-esque sitcom. He is jaded adult and vulnerable child at the same moment—too much maturity while desperately seeking affection—and all of it plays out on his face. It’s the best child performance since Tatum O’Neal’s Oscar winning turn with her own father in Paper Moon. (W Magazine)

Charlie Hardwick will be joining the cast of ACKLEY BRIDGE. She has been cast as a new director of pupil behaviour, Sue Carp, in the third series of the popular Channel 4 programme, which will be returning to screens this year.
Charlie says: ‘I’m absolutely over the moon to be joining Ackley Bridge, I was already a fan. It has fantastic characters and brilliantly sharp story-telling which tackles the desires and concerns of a diverse school of young people and their community head on, in full-beam. ‘It’s funny and moving in equal measures and has a huge heart. Unlike the new director of behaviour Sue Carp. She is belligerent and unwilling, and instead of dedicating her time to the well-being and development of her teenage students, she appears to be solely concerned with counting down the next ten years to her retirement. ‘She is unwittingly witty though, and somewhat unintentionally anarchic, which gets the school into deep doodoo and herself into dangerously sackable situations. I can’t wait to play her!’
