LES MISERABLES star EDDIE REDMAYNE and actress FELICITY JONES have joined a new BAFTA jury in search of emerging British talent in film, television and gaming.
The actors will help consider nominations for the first BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Breakthrough Brits awards, along with 19 other industry experts.
BAFTA chairman John Willis says, "It's been wonderful to see the breadth of emerging talent in the U.K.
"We're looking forward to revealing BAFTA's first ever Breakthrough Brits and to supporting them as they advance their careers. The future of our moving image industries is in good hands."
The talent selected will attend a day of talks from industry leaders, as well as networking, mentoring and guidance sessions to help them navigate their careers.
The list of honourees will be announced later this month (Sep13) and feted at a showcase in October (13).
