We’ve been at the BFI London Film Festival this past week. Of all the incredible features and short films, it has been great to see so many women-led stories (we'll be sure to do a round-up when LFF ends!).

It also got us thinking about our favourite women who are up-and-coming in the acting world. Have a read through our list to find out why we think their ones to watch and (why you should hire them for your productions... hint, hint).

They’ll no doubt be in big Hollywood epics in no time at all so work with them whilst you have the chance!

Alexa Morden

Alexa is someone we first spotted in ‘Rise of The Krays.’ It was a small part but she definitely stood out with her subtle performance. When we later saw her in short film 'Standby', we were surprised at the difference between characters, perfectly delivering the punchy comedic beats and becoming a likeable character in just minutes.

Lauren Cato

Lauren’s work rate is insane. She’s forever appearing in really great content with varied characters and amazing performances. She’s also regularly involved in stage plays so it’s definitely worth following her in case any new shows pop up!

Charlotte Lancaster

A recent graduate of the Central School of Speech and Drama, Charlotte has appeared in a number of short films showing incredibly diverse performances. In short film 'Kelly' we felt she was amazing as a gritty young traveller who wanted to become a boxer, despite having little to no experience with boxing. She easily managed to convince us!

Yazzmin Newell

Yazzmin is an incredible actor who has also just graduated (so hire her now guys before she takes off!). She recently worked alongside Charlotte Lancaster on ‘Unseen Tears of the Already Fallen’. We’re yet to see it... but we know they are going to be an incredible duo.

Tara Hodge

We saw Tara a while back in Silk and have been following her work ever since, she was recently a part of an SBTV music video project and despite having little dialogue she’s given a more convincing and emotive performance than what some people can do with lines an lines of dialogue.
