The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts has named Jonno Davies as its nominee for this year’s prestigious Spotlight Prize.
Each year, the UK’s best drama schools nominate their most talented final year student to compete for this famous award. Previous winners have included Dame Judy Dench and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Jonno will compete against 20 other students from the likes of RADA, Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and East 15 Acting School.
Each student will have just three minutes to give a performance of a lifetime. More importantly, they will have a unique opportunity to launch their careers in front of an exclusive audience of casting directors, agents, producers, directors and actors.
To be named as the most promising final-year student from your drama school is a huge achievement, and Jonno is honoured to be representing Italia Conti: “I know that any one of the 25 students graduating from Italia Conti this year could get up on stage and give an outstanding performance, so being nominated from such a talented group of actors is a huge honour and I hope to do them proud. Looking at some of the past winners shows the calibre of this event and that is extremely exciting.”
