A teenage actor is looking to the future after his on-screen debut in an award-winning horror flick.
Albie Marber, 14, of Clerkenwell, took on the starring role of Doug in Nasty, set in 1982.
It won two prizes in this year’s Maverick Movie Awards, and Portland Place School pupil Albie, who spends his free time writing, creating and directing films, hopes it will put him on the map.
“I have been lucky that I could start so young so I could begin perfecting my craft.
“You never stop learning so my early start will hopefully benefit my profession and future career.”
