Seana Kerslake 'A Date for Mad Mary'
Patrick Gibson, Seana Kerslake, Jessie Buckley and Fionn O'Shea are included in Screen's line-up, which is presented in assoication with the BFI London Film Festival.

Stars of Tomorrow is curated by Screen's Fionnuala Halligan, who curates the line-up after considering hundreds of candidates and consulting with industry experts including casting agents, talent agents, managers, producers and directors.

Farah Abushwesha, producer of The Party, is included in the Filmmakers list.

Patrick Gibson won the Irish Film Board Rising Star Award at this year's IFTA Film & Drama Awards; he is joined in the Stars of Tomorrow list by Seana Kerslake, previously nominated for her lead role in 'A Date for Mad Mary', Jessie Buckley (Beast) and Fionn O'Shea are included in Screen's line-up.and by Fionn O'Shea. Fionn's recent work includes Handsome Devil and the siege of Jadotville.

Fionnula Halligan says “The fact that we have an unprecedented number of young Irish actors this year is testament to both their talent and the bigger role that Irish film is currently playing on the international stage. Irish actors form almost one-third of our talent portfolio this year, and they are all ideally poised for further success on an international level.

“Although Seana Kerslake and Fionn O’Shea came to my attention for vibrant performances in brilliant Irish films (A Date for Mad Mary and Handsome Devil), it’s also fair to say that both Paddy Gibson and Jessie Buckley arrived in Stars of Tomorrow completely by stealth. They were so convincing in their characters that it was only at the process that I realised they were also Irish too.”
