This year's finalists are:


Elliot Reeves-Giblin, Actor

Born in Liverpool, Elliot began his career as a freelancer at the age of 17; working professionally as an actor at such theatres as the Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse. In 2015, with other Liverpool creatives, Elliot set up Out On Its Own Theatre Company, a theatre company comprised of young working class actors, designers and directors to tell relevant, engaging stories. Now in his final year at Drama School, I hope to grow and expand the company to tell even more stories to engage audiences and inspire the next generation of performers.
