The Drama School Creating a New Generation of Black British Actors

 

They’re young, British, and taking on Hollywood. A new generation of black actors, including John Boyega in the blockbuster Star Wars, have been trained at the Identity School of Acting, in London. Established in 2003, it now boasts a roster of talent, that’s doing well in America. The British Film Institute has identified a lack of diversity in film making, and Colleen Harris has been to meet some of the school’s stars, who’re breaking the industry’s glass ceiling.
