Ruby is an aspiring actor who was offered representation by a top drama agency, but difficult family circumstances made it impossible for her to afford the fees. We awarded Ruby funding for membership and coaching so she can follow her dream.

An update from Ruby:

"I’m currently in an exciting audition process for an upcoming TV show where I’ve now been shortlisted.

On top of this I’ve now completed my National Youth Theatre course and have officially joined as a member.

I’ve gained a place in the DMA Elite Company London for the second time and am now working in development of a short film I may be producing with a team next summer. 

Once again thank you so much to the Starr Trust for their help, I honestly couldn’t achieve half of this without them."
