Rhianne Barreto has been announced as one of Screen Daily’s Stars of Tomorrow 2018. Rhianne stars as lead Sophie in upcoming Amazon series Hanna and as the lead in the Untitled Pippa Bianco Project. “It’s so important these stories get told, and it’s incredible I’ve now got this opportunity.”
Now in its 15th year, the annual talent showcase up-and-coming actors, writers, directors and producers from the UK and Ireland who are primed to make their mark in the industry in the years to come. Stars of Tomorrow editor Fionnuala Halligan curates the line-up after considering hundreds of candidates and consulting with industry experts including casting directors, talent agents, managers, producers and directors.
Rhianne’s love for acting has been a driving force from an early age. “It was interesting while growing up, not seeing anyone like me on screen,” she says. “Being able to be seen for roles that I wouldn’t usually be seen for is really important — and it shouldn’t just be a phase or a trend.”
