The younger Iron Lady

If you caught this week's episode of Being Human, you will have seen fast-rising young Welsh actress Alexandra Roach, playing slowly rotting zombie, Sasha.

Since graduating from RADA last year, Alexandra was snapped up by top agency Troika. With roles already filmed in new BBC comedy series Candy Cabs and ITV's adaptation of best-selling non-fiction crime tome The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, she is currently filming The Iron Lady in which she plays the young Margaret Thatcher to Meryl Streep's older version. The two actresses have apparently been together to catch Thatcher's voice patterns, to make sure their performances are in sync.

Playing opposite her, in the role of the young Dennis (with the older version played by Jim Broadbent) is another up and coming young British actor, 27 year old Harry Lloyd (represented by Curtis Brown). Oxford graduate Harry featured in Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2010. Best known for his role as Will Scarlett in Robin Hood, he will soon be hitting our screens in the much anticipated fantasy series Game of Thrones in which he playsViserys.

Also look out for Eliot Otis Brown Walters (now represented by Bloomfields Management) who won a BAFTA for his performance in CBBC drama Summerhill.
