It is every young, aspiring actor’s dream – to land a plump role in a feature film.

And for 13-year old Cameron Farrelly, the dream has already become a reality.

Cameron, a pupil of the Newport Pagnell based Diamond School of Performing Arts, will play Alfie in Meet the Guvnors.

Cameron has been a pupil at the school for the past decade, and founder Paula Diamond is thrilled with his success.

“We’ve literally see him grow since he was born, as his sister was attending our classes then – so Diamond School has always been a part of his life,” she said.

“He first came along as a baby in his mum’s arms and sat in on many costume and scenery making sessions, as his mum has always been very supportive to our school and very active in all we do – even taking part on stage in some of our community productions at Milton Keynes Theatre.”

This year alone, Cameron has shown his acting prowess in the Bloody Tales of the Tower for Sky Television, and he will appear in forthcoming television series Mr Sloane alongside actor Nick Frost.

Cameron has also been recording voice-overs for the Disney Channel throughout the year.

His most recent engagement in Meet The Guvnors is undoubtedly his biggest so far, though, and finds him acting alongside singer, television and stage star David Essex, and Harvey Alexander – best known as one half of the music duo Rizzle Kicks.

One of the rising star’s biggest fans is proud mum Jayne.

“Cameron is really enjoying himself,” she said. “He feels that he is learning lots and when filming ends he doesn’t want to go home!”
