Natural Selection: A Young Actors Portfolio

This exclusive film by Joe Ridout for the new issue of Another Man spotlights ten emerging talents tipped for the top

In the high-stakes world of film, casting director Nina Gold has the Midas touch. From Star Wars: Episode VII and Game of Thrones to The Theory of Everything and The Imitation Game, her eye for assembling acting talent is unequalled. Here, exclusively for Another Man 21, Gold presents the ten young actors that she believes are destined for very big things – Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Tom Holland, Luke Newberry, George MacKay, Nico Mirallegro, Jack Bannon, Alex Lawther, Dean-Charles Chapman, Art Parkinson and Tosin Cole – captured behind the scenes of Venetia Scott and Alister Mackie's shoot by London-based film maker, Joe Ridout. 

"Each of these emerging talents beams out youthful energy. They're the whole package; an explosion of potential and absolute originality that radiates right in front of your eyes. It's as though each of them has managed to harness their particular energy force, and those special qualities that make them individually brilliant, and really put it out there in the world. I think it's pretty brave, actually. They're the future." – Nina Gold
