YOUNG & RESTLESS: BAFTA’S STARS OF TOMORROW

March 11th, 2014

In celebration of the 2014 BAFTA’s, Wonderland has joined in blissful union with their official backstage photographer Jessie Craig to shoot who we imagine to be future award winners.

There’s not much better than an awards ceremony – exulted triumph, applause, gowns, men in suits, sobbing disappointment, hysterical women stealing hateful glances at each other. Pure theatre. In celebration of the 2014 BAFTA’s, Wonderland has joined in blissful union with their official backstage photographer Jessie Craig to shoot who we imagine to be future award winners. Here they pose resplendent and explain, in bite-sized quote form, their dreams, loves, aspirations and ventures for the rest of 2014.

Harry Treadaway
“Coming up I’m playing Dr Frankenstein in Showtime’s Penny Dreadful with Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett. Also, I star in a psychological thriller indie with Rose Leslie called Honeymoon, I’m writing and directing a short film and am shooting a photographic portrait project. Calm, then.”

Gugu Mbatha-Raw
“Even though she’s hardly fictional, Cleopatra would be great to explore, as she’s reached an almost mythological status in history. Plus it would be interesting to discover the real woman beneath the image.”

Max Irons
“I’ve spent too long thinking about what a musical of my life would sound like. Out of key probably.”

Freddie Fox
“When I was a kid it was the big action epics: Die Hard, Beverly Hills Cop. As I got older: Withnail & I, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, The Godfather, Glengarry Glen Ross. I have relatively eclectic taste, but there’s definitely a strong Al Pacino theme running through it.”

Asa Butterfield
“In every film I do, I learn something new and I never know what the day will bring. Unless, of course I have to wake up at 5am, no one likes waking up at 5am…”

Kaya Scodelario
“I’m obsessed with the 60s and 70s music scene, so I would love to portray a character of that time. I love the fashion, music and youth movement of it all. My favourite band is The Rolling Stones and I’d love to play a young Keith Richards. Like most British actors, I’d love to be in a Bond film – but I want to be the one who finally kills Bond, and doesn’t sleep with him.”

Dominic Sherwood
“I used to love watching anything with superheroes and villains in. Mainly for the villains! I love the paradox of dark and light needing each other. I’m a big James Dean fan, so Rebel Without A Cause was another one that lit the fire in me. I also love Last Of the Mohicans – from the performances to the tragedy and beauty of the story. But who doesn’t look up to Daniel Day Lewis?”
