The Orange Rising Star Award recognises five international actors and actresses who have demonstrated exceptional talent and have begun to capture the imagination of the public as a star in the making.
About the Award
The Orange Rising Star Award was established in 2006 in honour of Mary Selway, the highly-respected, BAFTA-winning British casting director who died in 2004. Now in its fifth year, the Award has set a standard for identifying up-and-coming acting talent in the film industry. The accolade remains unique as the only award at the Orange British Academy Film Awards to be voted for by the public.
Choosing the shortlist
Potential Rising Stars were proposed by BAFTA members and film industry insiders to create an initial long list of names. The jury, consisting of actors, casting directors, producers, media representatives and BAFTA Film Committee members, then selected the final five nominees via a secret ballot.
