Digital Spy's rising stars for 2015: Joe Cole, Karla Crome and more

9 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Who are the stars of tomorrow in TV, film and theatre?

Digital Spy presents its predictions for 2015 - in no particular order, here are seven young actors, writers, comedians and musicians who look destined to make an impression on the world of entertainment this year.

1. Billy Howle

After graduating from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2013, Billy Howle quickly landed television work in Channel 4's New Worlds and on ITV's Vera.

But the young actor first came to our attention last year with his powerful performance as the troubled James in sorely underrated countryside thriller Glue.

Next up for the talented Howle is a plum role in BBC One's adaptation of Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie, which is due to be broadcast later in 2015.

2. Hannah Britland

A graduate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Hannah Britland launched her television acting career with early roles in Misfits and Skins. »

Teaser Trailer + On-set Report for Egyptian Human Organ Trafficking Thriller 'The Cat'

5 January 2015 8:20 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

A film that's high on my to-see list this year is Egyptian auteur Ibrahim El Batout's latest - a Cairo-set action thriller titled "El Ott" ("The Cat" in English), which centers on the very topical matter of human organ trafficking in Egypt. In short, Egypt’s recent political upheavals, which left a temporary law enforcement gap in the country, reportedly allowed what have been called mob-led organ-trafficking rings to thrive. Amr Waked ("Salmon Fishing in the Yemen") is producing and starring in the film. He's joined by Palestinian actor Mohammad Bakri, Egyptian actress-model Sarah Shaheen, and Egyptian actor Salah Al Hanafy, who »
