The bursary was awarded to the two graduating final year drama school students of East Asian descent who, in the opinion of the judging panel, best demonstrated at the audition/interview that they have the talent, skills and commitment to succeed as a professional actor.
The panel this year included casting directors from the National Theatre, RSC and BBC.
The bursary consists of £1,000 as well as a FREE year’s subscription to Spotlight.
The bursary is provided by actor Orion Lee, “I believe in the collaborative nature of our industry and in working together to constantly make it better. I think Yellow Earth is a great organisation, constantly offering opportunities to BEA performers. I’m proud to support it and the future of our industry by providing this bursary.”
