TEN young actors from Barry's Superstars in the Making academy have passed prestigious exams set out by the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

The students trained for three months to study for the exam and travelled to Swansea to perform in front of the examiner.

All ten students passed with either merit or distinction. Their mentor Christian Bullen said: "I am very pleased with the results this year.

"The examinations are a great way for these young actors to gain extra skills as well as building confidence.

"They are also a great way to show potential colleges and employers that they can commit to a task and fulfil it."

A new set of classes are starting soon in Barry for people age 8-18. More information can be found at www.superstarsinthemaking.com
