BAFTA in Scotland today announced that 12-year-old Daniel Kerr, who plays the young Paul Ferris in 'The Wee Man', has been nominated for a BAFTA. Daniel, from Glasgow, is one of more than 30 nominees for this year's BAFTA New Talent Awards which recognise exceptional work across several categories including acting, writing and animation. Daniel is up against Sophie Gane for her appearance in 'Aurora' and George Wallace for 'The Happy Lands'.
But the headlines this morning were all about Daniel who says: "It just feels amazing to be nominated. I can't believe it. When I first told my dad when I was younger that I wanted to be an actor, I never imagined I'd be nominated for a BAFTA." The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by broadcaster Muriel Gray in Glasgow's Oran Mor on 21st March. 'The Wee Man' is currently screening in Paisley and East Glasgow.
