Budding actress Annie Larkin, 23, from Gorefield, is celebrating gaining one of only 15 places at the prestigious Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts.

She will be studying on a nine-month Drama Foundation course, which is the only one in the world associated with RADA.

As it is a foundation course and is not government funded, she is also appealing for sponsorship for the nine-month course which starts in September.

She said: “I have been performing locally since I was three and I currently appear at the Luxe Cinema before every film in the short film ‘Welcome to the Luxe’. I am also in the Fraser Dawbarns advert.

“It is my ultimate dream and goal to be an actress, aiming mainly for roles in film and television – and this course will help me achieve my goals by giving me a very intensive training and also helping me gain a place, hopefully, at a conservatoire drama school.”

Annie belongs to WAODS (Wisbech Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society) and has performed with them from a very young age. The society has already sponsored her with £100 towards her course.

“I have also been in productions in the past with RATz at the Angles Theatre and also with MADAOS (March and District Amateur Operatic Society).

“I also danced at the Cynthia Maxey School of Dance from the age of three and I studied on the performing arts course at the College of West Anglia when it was run at the Isle Campus in Wisbech,” said Annie.
