Last week we got to hear from feature-film newcomer Isabela Moner on her role as Izabella in the latest movie in the Transformers franchise and today it’s the turn of fellow Brit Laura Haddock. Laura has previously appeared in numerous TV shows including The Level, Da Vinci’s Demons and Luther on stage and had parts in The Inbetweeners movie and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Winterhart’s book, which was shortlisted for the 2012 Costa Award, tells the story of “an idle summer in the lives of a shy 15-year-old heavy metal fan and his librarian mother. It perfectly captures the ennui, tension, pathos and affection of a mother-son relationship,” according to a statement.
